John Kelly took this dramatic photo of a Na- 
tional (iuardsman in Washinjrton, D.C. dur- 
ing the April liots. John previously sei-ved as 
photo editor of the Daily ColleKian. and has 
been doin*; jreneral trouble-shooting' assign- 
ments for both the MDC and The Statesman 
since beinjr sidetracked by mnrriatre last year. 
The photo to your rifrht is also one of Kel's. 

Last month's conference of the Ameri- 
can Society of Newspaper Editors (AS- 
NE) in Washington was the scene of a 
panel discussion on that familiar topic, 
the "generation gap" a phrase used by 
our elders to describe any aspect of 
young America which makes no sense 
to them, or which does not coincide with 
the beliefs, ideals, and prejudices which 
they hold so sacred. 

The panelists, in the words of Editor 
& Publisher magazine, were, "a charm- 
ing young lady, two shaggy-haired young 
radicals, and an aging professional foot- 
ball quarterback." It was one of the 
shaggy-haired radicals, Phil Semas of 
the United States Student Press Associa- 
tion, who threw out the term "jouralism 
gap" for the editors to consider. 

Said Semas, "I am sort of surprised to 
find that you have asked us to explain 
the generation gap to you. After all, you 
invented the generation gap. We didn't. 

"It was hard for you to understand all 
those demonstrations and hippies and 
things so you had to coin a phrase for 
it — generation gap — just as you had 
to coin the phrase credibility gap to 
avoid having to call the President a 
liar, which isn't a nice thing to say, even 
though he is one. 

"In other words, the generation gap 
exists only in your newspapers. It doesn't 
mean anything. It is just an attempt to 
explain some very severe criticism of 
the Establishment in terms of a split 
between generations." 

He hit the press hard for its failure to 
"tell it like it is," and the criticism is 
well deserved. It is perhaps an unavoid- 
able, inherent trait of newspapers to 
criticize everyone and everything without 
pausing to introspect and evaluate. 

Semas is wrong, of course, in blaming 
the press for all of America's problems. 
"Generation gap" is not synonymous 
wiUi "journalism gap," but rather the 
latter is a large contribution to the for 
mer in that young America has be- 
come painfully aware of a difference 
between the printed word and the truth. 
This is not to say that the truth is com 
pletely sacrificed— just glossed over 
slightly, made more palatable for the 
readers. A balanced picture of Amcri 
can society is not presented for con 

Too much attention is paid to "good 
newspaper style" (though few finished 
products reflect it). Too much emphasis 
has been placed on "straight reporting" 
of the facts with little or no attention

The election year 1968 will undoubtedly 
be a turning point in the history of the 
United States. The question is: Which 
way will we go? 

being paid to the causes which brought 
about the effect. Happily, there is now 
a trend towards more interpretive re 
porting, though the majority of Ameri- 
ca's papers aren't yet aware of it. The 
papers with the best "in depth" stories 
are unfortunately those which have a 
much smaller impact on the public pro- 
portionally — like the Christian Science 
Monitor and the National Observer. 

When a paper is no longer free it can- 
not be responsible. Yet this is the case 
with every newspaper which cowtows to 
its advertisers, and they make up the 
majority by far. A good example is the 
recent birth control/Zayre's incident: 
none of the area press mentioned Zayre's 
by name, but merely referred to it as 
"a local department store," "a South 
Hadley store," etc. 

This situation is a little more compre- 
hendable in light of the fact that as of 
last year there were competing news- 
papers in only 64 out of the 1547 cities 
that have dailies. And then there are 
thousands of small weeklies. The situa- 
tion is sad indeed. 

"The press needs criticism" says the 
introduction to a USSPA bulletin on the 
press' mishandling of the Columbia sit- 
uation. This is an understatement. Dur- 
ing this summer I shall try to delve into 
some of the problems faced by the press 
and caused by the press. Not only the 
commercial press but also the college 
press in general and, more specifically, 
our own publications at UMass. 

Each has contributed in some way to 
the atmosphere which has given rise to 
assassination, rioting, and general dis- 
content if not outright protest. Perhaps 
the time has come to find out why. 

It's a year of decision for the mass 
media. What that decision is wUl un- 
doubtedly have an enormous effect on the 
stability of American society in the next 
few years.

Dear Editor, 

I am writing to you in the hope that 
you will communicatee my appreciation 
to the students on your camp""! for 
their CHOICE 68 votes. 

Not only because my candidacy was 
favored in the balloting am I grateful. 
More significant than the success or the 
losses of individual candidates in 
CHOICE 68 is the participation by one 
million students on some 1200 campuses 
in the ix)litical process. Student opin- 
ions, debated and expressed democrat- 
ically, will influence elections through 
out our nation. 

CHOICE 68 opinions on military ac- 
tion, bombing and the urban situation 
have been forwarded to me. I note that 
55.4 percent of my student supporters 
favor a reduction of military action in 
Vietnam and 29.1 percent are for with- 
drawal. Among students for me. 51.2 
percent would stop the bomJbing and 
28.4 p>ercent prefer temporary suspen- 
sion. I can assure you I shall keep these 
views in mind as I try to develop 5n- 
telligent responses to changing inter- 
nationeil relations. 

The emphasis of students for McCar- 
thy on education and job training in our 
urban reconciliation efforts is reassur- 
ing to me in a very personal way. Let 
us remain together, and I am confident 
that our common cause can change 
the direction of our country. 

With best wishes. 

Eugene J. McCarthy 

Dear Editor, 

For the last few days I have been 
trying to convince myself that I, along 
with 200 million other Americans, am 
not guilty of the murder of Sen. Robert 
F. Kennedy. However, I have been un- 
Sble to cleanse my mind of same feeling 
of guilt. Certain national leaders have 
been trying to convince the world that 
America is a sick country, a country 
with no future. I don't want to believe 
that. Yet I know to a certain extent 
that it is true. 

I think not only of the assassinations 
of John Kennedy, Medgar Evers, Martin 
Luther King, and Robert Kennedy; but 
also of the murder of the eight student 
nurses in Chicago by the accused Rich- 

Th* Statvunan 

ard Speck, the murder of 16 students 
at the University of Texas by Charles 
Whitman, and of course the Boston 
stranglings. I think of the riots which 
have engulfed our cities, and I think of 
the damn war which has drained from 
the youth of our country. 

And then I think of our political sys- 
tem. I think of a lonely, unknown sen- 
ator from Minnesota, who by winning 
elections in New Hampshire and Wis- 
consin .forced the most powerful man in 
the world to call it quits. I think of the 
demonstrations across the country 
whfch made the nation take a minute 
to think. I think of the heart trans- 
plants and of the space feats. And I 
think of the Red Sox and the Impossible 
Dream (it could only happen here). 

I'm confused about America. Where 
are we going? By what means will we 
get there? Has political assassination 
become an integral part of American 

America needs a new set of goals; to 
maintain the status quo won't do. With- 
out this "bloodless revolution," America, 
as we know it today won't survive. To 
quote a well known news commentator, 
"America must change, for if it doesn't, 
some day it will have a leader as brutal 
as the society which he leads." 
Donald Epstein 
Managing Editor, Daily Collegian 

Dear Editor. 

k is the responsibility of the free press 
to jjersuade Cardinal Gushing to per- 
suade Senator Ted Kennedy to run for 
President. Many j)oliUcal organizations 
have the visible resources to lead our 
cotUKtry. But only the Kennedy family 
and organization have the true under- 
standing of tragedy necessary to bring 
Martin Luther King's Dream down from 
Heaven to this Earth. 

Only Cardinal Gushing can certify that 
now is God's time for this to happen. 
Only the power of the press can give the 
American people the chance to vote their 
acceptance and approval of a politics of 
courage to overcome tragedy.

The price 
is too high*' 

by Ronald J. I^aBrecque 

While watching the funeral pro- 
cedings on TV I attempted to gather 
together memories of a day spent in 
Indianapolis last March. The days 
have been so filled with newspaper 
work and squeezing by final exam-s 
that I have had little time to think 
of my brief exciting nKxnents in the 
presence of the man many of us 
there felt would be the next Presi- 
dent of the United States. 

Traveling through Indianapolis 
during spring vacatwn, I heard a ra- 
dio news report that Sen. Robert F. 
Kennedy would be 'arriving at Weir 
Cook Airport, which is at the out- 
skirt* of the city, ^te in the after- 
noon. He was comipg to Indiana to 
file his cardidacy 'in that state's 
presidential primary. ' 

Sparked by a personal desire to 
become in some way involved in the 
excitement of KennWy's appearance 
and urged on by a writer's drive to 
witness firsthand an event of majoi 
importance in hopes of later crea- 
tively relating it in print, I drove to 
the airport. 

If memories of the day weri: f-><];- 
ged by other activities aifter return- 
ing to school, the assassination made 
them that much more vivid. 

There was excitement, a generat- 
ing, pulsating feeling, which mount- 
ed steadily as the moment for the 
Senator's arrival approached. I v/as 
fortunate enough to be allowed to 
enter the press area and even a- 
mong sonae of these "pros", accos- 
tomed I'm sure to covering VIP's, 
there was a certain tension. The 
Kennedy's were fast coming to epi- 
tomize the American ideal and there 
was an indescribable special .soiiie- 
thii j: al>out the man they would soon 
be swarming around with a constant 
barrage of flashbulbs, .strainins,' t.) 
hear his very word. 

The plane was late and the largo 
contingent from Indiana Univ., an-i 

. <c.- 

the kids from Purdue, and the kids 
from the local high schools, and the 
large number of older people weix' 
becoming amdous. The youth in the 
crowd was an obvious factor of its 
makeup but I could see in the faces 
of the older people the same hope 
and faith in the man that they were 
waiting for, a leader. 

I asked a four year old what ho 
was doing at the airport as Ws mo- 
ther whispered to him "tell the 'boy 
you came to see Bobby". Yes, we had 
come to see Bobby and to a deafen- 
ing cheer fn>m the crowd and a mad 
crush of people from the mass me- 
dia at the entrance to the room, Bob- 
by came. 

Snapping pictures with no less en- than the Associated Press 
photographer standing next to me I 
was inmiedialely aware of the ex- 
treme physical drain the tour had 
been on the man. There was a 
kle in his eye and the smile was 
there but I could see in his face 
that the long strenuous hours were 
taking their toll. One of my most vi- 
vid memories however of the Sena- 
tor is from the press conference, (a- 
gain I will always remember how 
fortunate I was to be admitted) 

In my mind stands out a pair of 
scuffed brown shoes. The tell - tale 
sign of the smiling man. resplendent 
in a gray glenplaid suit were the 
shoes. They were so out of context. 
Yet it was such a small thing that 
brought home the point that Bobby 
was giving up a lot. 

They brought home the point, be- 
cause they accentuated the haggard 
lines in his face, that as an Indiana- 
polis columnist put it the next day; 
"The presidency requires a man to 
pay a tremendous physical price and 
Kennedy appeared to \)e playin^j it." 

The {jeople cheered and the whole 
day was one bright big balloon filled 
with excitement, and love, and ad- 
miration, and hojx? but then some- 
body burst that lialloon. I think the 
price is tix> high. 

June 12, 1968 




Ground has been broken by a Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts group for Frater- 
nity-Sorority Park, Inc.. a unique pri- 
vately developed housing complex for 
Greek-letter organizations. 

University President John W. Lederle 
turned the first spadeful of earth on a 
55-acre plot of rolling land northeast of 
the UMass campus that will eventually 
be the home of 23 UMass fraternities and 

The $7.5 million complex will cost each 
participating organization approximately 
$325,000. Greek-letter groups at UMass 
now occupy houses in residential areas 
of Amherst near the campus. Many are 
old and are considered to be inadequate 
by present university standards, factors 
which prompted the beginning of plan- 
ning for Fraternity-Sorority Park by 
University officials and others nearly 

three years ago. 

Fraternity-Sorority Park, Inc.. was 
founded by 13 UMass Greek-letter 
groups. Its directors include University 
administrators, fraternity officers, area 
businessmen and others. Ten Greek 
chapters are participating in the first 
phase of development and have sched- 
uled construction on houses with tenta- 
tive completion dates early in 1969. 

The organizations are the fraternities 
Phi Mu Delta. Tau Kappa Epsilon. 
Lambda Chi Alpha. Phi Sigma Delta, 
Sigma Alpha Mu, Alpha Epsilon Pi and 
Alpha Sigma Phi; and the sororities Chi 
Omega. Sigma Sigma Sigma and Lamb- 
da Delta Phi. 

Individual chapters will work with 
their own , architects in the design of 
their house's. Overall plans for the park 
will be integrated with the University's 
master campus plan.

spade, ground is broken for a unique student housing project- — Fraternity-Sorority Park, Inc., 
privately-developed area of 55 acres near the UMass campus that will eventually contain the 
houses of 23 University Greek-letter societies. At left is Robert Gailey, president of the cor- 
poration, and in the center William F. Field, UMass dean of students. The first 10 houses in the 
complex are tentatively scheduled for completion in 1969. 




passed a resolve supporting the park 
proposal in principle and including a 
provision that the University may take 
over a house in the park as a residence 
hall in case a chapter fails to meet its 
mortgage or lease commitments. 

The resolve also proposes that "the 
offices of the University should be ex- 
tended to determine that fraternities and 
sororities build, maintain and operate 
on a sound financial basis houses that 
meet University living standards for the 
health and safety of students." 

Per Nylen of Northampton is park de- 
signer; coordinating architect is David 
Carlson of Springfield. Engineering is 
by Gordon E. Ainsworth of South Deer- 
field and site development by Puffer 
Construction Corp. of Amherst. Financ- 
ing for the initial development phase of 
the project is being arranged by Manley 
Kelley and Thonrton Banks of the Wor- 
cester County National Bank. 

Corporation president Robert Gailey 
said that the role of the park corpora- 
tion will be to assist Greek-letter organi- 
zations with financing and building, to 
take responsibility for maintenance of 
the park and corporation-owned prop 
erty. and to serve as a coordinating 
agency for the Greek organizations, the 
University and the town of Amherst. 

The complex is the first in the nation 
to be created, planned, financed and ad 
ministered without direct university or 
college involvement, according to Gailey. 


Dr. Stanley N. Gaunt, University of 
Massachusetts extension professor of 
dairy and animal sciences, has been a- 
warded a Fulbright Educational Ex- 
change Grant to conduct research in 
dairy genetics at two institutions in 
Copenhagen, Denmark. 

Dr. Gaunt will study at the Royal 
College of Agriculture and Veterinary 
Science and the Danish National Re- 
search Institute, leaving here in Janu- 
ary of 1969 and returning in August, 
1969. He wiU also do some work at the 
University of Wageningen in the Neth- 
erlands and the University of Gottingen 
in Germany. 

His area of study will be genetic 
markers — genetic identiflcation forms 
found in the blood and milk of dairy 
cattle. He will study European refine- 
ments of techniques for identifying such 
markers and will also do research in 
the relationship of these markers to 
such dairy cattle traits as performance, 
color, size and health. 

A UMass staff member since 1945, 
Dr. Gaunt is active in state and re- 
gional dairy research groups. He teach- 
es advanced genetics at UMass, is chair- 
man of the Extension Dairy Commit- 
tee and is the author of more than a 
dozen publications dealing with dairy 
research and extension subjects.

son of Hampshire College and President 
John W. Lederle of the University of

Committee to make an extensive review 
of present cooperative arrangements 
among the five institutions, assess their 
strengths and weaknesses, propose long

among actions required to reach those

This group will devote two long week- 
ends to work together during July at a 
conference center away from their in- 
stitutions to prepare a draft document. 
During the academic year 1968-69, the 
Long Range Planning Committee will 
consult other five college committees, 
administrative officials, faculty mem- 
bers and students in the Valley and will 
make their final report to the five presi- 
dents in the spring of 1969. 

Amherst. Mount Holyoke and Smith 
Colleges and the University of Massa- 
chusetts have worked together informally 
for many years. In 1951. they estab- 
lished the Hampshire Inter-Library Cen 
ter as a cooperatively supported deposi- 
tory for expensive and rarely used books 
and serials. Following a 1956 Four Col- 
lege study, other cooperative arrange- 
ments were formalized and a part-time 
coordinator was appointed to direct and 
expand upon them. 

In 1958, another four college commit 
tee recommended the establishment of 
an experimental fifth college which could 
draw on the resources of the existing in- 
stitutions and contribute particular 
strengths to them. A gift in 1965 of 
$6,000,000 by an Amherst alumnus. Har- 
old Johnson, made it possible to proceed 
to carry out the 1958 plan. Hampshire 
College, which will admit its first stu- 
dents in 1970. is the result. With the ad- 
vent of the fifth college in the Valley, 
the five presidents decided to appoint 
a full time coordinator to be the execu- 
tive director of all cooperative activities.

The Howard M. Lobow Memorial 
Trust Fund has received a major 
contribution in the form of a gift of 
$400 from the University of Massachu- 
setts Chorale, the University has an- 

The Lebow Fund was established in 
March of this year to provide scholar- 
ships for graduate and undergraduate 
music students at UMass who demon- 
strated musical potential according to 
the ideas and standards of excellence 
which the late Mr. Lebow set for him- 
self and his students. 

Mr. Lebow was a distinguished con- 
cert artist and assistant professor of 
music at the University. He was gradu- 
ated from the Juilliard Sch<x>l of Mu- 
sic in 1957, received his master's decree 
there in 1959. and was winner of the 
Morris Loeb Memorial Prize. Juilliard's 
highest pianistic honor. He also studied 
in Germany and Austria, and was a stu- 
dent of Edward Stcuermann, a pupil of 
the great composer and pianist, Fer- 
rucio Busoni. 

Mr. Lebow received international ac- 
claim as a concert artist and performed 
frequently for audiences throughout the 
United States, in many European mu- 
sic capitals, and for major European 
radio networks. He joined the UMass 
faculty in 1965. and taught there until 
his untimely death in an automobile ac- 
cident in January of this year. 

"We hope, by this giii, to holp per- 
petuate the ideals of Mr. Lebow, who, 
during his tragically brief tenure here, 
was actively interested in developing 
scholarship assistance for students in 
the music department." said Chorale 
manager Richard Bingham. "It is our 
sincere hope that other groups and in- 
dividuals will take note of the admir- 
able purpose of the fund, and the op- 
portunity it provides for perpetuating 
the memory of this great artist, teach- 
er, and scholar in a most fitting man- 

The Fine Arts Council of the Univer- 
sity voted unanimf>usly to commend the 
members of the Chorale for the gift. 
"Your generosity and spirit of enthusi- 
asjn for the purposes of the fund are 
greatly appreciated," wrote Dr. Paul 
Norton of the council in a letter to 

Bingham, "and we wish to congratulate 
vou for your unselfish decisions to use 
your own funds for such a worthy

Dr. Vernon L. Smith, one of the na- 
tion's outstanding economists, has been 
appointed Visiting Professor of Econo- 
mics at the University of Massachusetts 
in Amherst for the 1968-69 academic 

Noted for his research contributions 
in experimental and theoretical econo- 
mics. Dr. Smith is the author of the 
b(X)k, Investment and Production, pub- 
lished in 1962 by the Harvard Univer- 
sity Press. The book is the culmination 
of his pioneering work on the long-run 
theory of the firm. He has also publish- 
ed innovative analyses of experiments 
to test important economic hypotheses. 
His research has been supported for a 
number of years by National Science 
Foundation grants. 

Dr. Smith spent 12 years at the Her- 
man C Krannert School of Industrial 
Administration at Purdue University, 
wher^ he earned a reputation as an out- 
standing teacher of both undergraduate 
and graduate students. While there, he 
CO - authored the important textbook 
Eeunoniios: An Analytical Approa<>h. 

Dr. Smith also made significant con- 
tributions to the development of a cur- 
riculum in decision theory at Purdue's 
Krannert School. Since 1957 he has 
served as contributing editor of Busl- 
n«^s Scope. During 1958-59 he was a 
Ford Foundation Faculty Research 

A native of Wichita. Kan., Dr. Smith 
received a B.S. in electrical engineer- 
ing from the California Institute of 
Technology in 1949. Switching to the 
field of economics, he earned a master's 
degree at the University of Kansas in 
1952 and a Ph.D. degree from Harvard 
University in 1955. 

He has been visiting professor a I 
Stanford University and is presently 
visiting professor of economics at 
Brown University. 

Commenting on Prof. Smith's ap - 
rK>intment, College of Arts and Sciences 
Dean I. Moyer Hunsberger said: "The 
University of Massachusetts is honored 
to have Vernon Smith on its faculty as 
visiting professor of economics. Both 
students and faculty should benefit e- 
normously from association with tliis 
distinguished scientist. His advice will 
be especially helpful to all who are con- 
cerned with improving the academic 
quality of our state university."

It was "throw-away" caps and ^owns 
for graduating seniors at the Univer 
sity of Massachasdts thLs year. 

The gowns and mortarb(xirds worn 
by undergraduates at the University's 
98th commencement Saturday, June 1, 
had the traditional academic look but 
were made of a new material — a light- 
weight acetate. The entire outfit cost 
less than $5 and was designed to be 
discarded after the ceremony if the 
wearer chose. 

UMass, as far as is known, is the only 
large institution in the east to use the 
new lightweight outfits this year. The 
commencement practice at most insti- 
tutions is for graduates to rent cajjs and 
gowns, a procedure that was followed 
at UMass up to this year. 

The throw-away robes were adopted 
to end the graduation day inconvenience 
of checking out and returning hundreds 
of rented caps and gowns. The light- 
weight outfits were also expected to be 
cooler than the conventional black cot- 
ton. The cost of the outfits came from 
the $10 graduation fee paid by all sen- 

This year appro.ximately 1720 Univer- 
sity seniors and 224 Stockbridge School 
seniors wore the new lightweight robes. 
The approximately 380 advanced degree 
candidates wore conventional cotton, 
either providing their own or renting. 


A full summer of class work, sjx^cial 
institutes, conferences and other pro- 
grams got under way yesterday when 
UMass began registration for its 1968 
summer session. 

Some 3500 are expected to register 
for the first stuiimer session term which 
runs from June 11 to July 19. A second 
term will run from July 23 to Aug. 30 
and is expected to attract a similar 
number. Total predicated summer enroll 
ment will be approximately 7000. 

This year's Swing Shift freshmen will 
begin an 11-week session June 17. The 
361 in this group will complete the 
equivalent of a semester of work this 
summer, .stay out for the fall semester 
and i^join their freshman chissmates in 
the spring semester of 1969. The plan 
fills spaces caused by the high first- 
year attrition rate. 

Summer study in foui- foreign eoun- 
trit^ will continue this summer under 
UM auspices. In England an iastitute 
in English at Oxford Univ. is in it.>

Damages done to Deerfield farms 
during a fraternity party there 
this spring have been settled and dis- 
ciplLr.ary action against the fraternity 
is expected in the fall, according to 
WilU;ini Ptichards of the Dean of Men's 

Farmers claimed over $1000 worth of 
proiK?rty damage after ;i Kappa Si^ma 
picnic Alay 11. The fraternity accepted 
the complaints against cn)p danrage af- 
ter driving across the alfalfa field of 
Howard Hallett. 

Richards said that restitution was 
made for the land damage where there 
was reasonable proof that the frater- 
nity members did it. He exiwcts that 
the Fraternity Judiciary Council will 
take action in the form of i)robation 
for the house when the Council con- 
venes in the fail. 

A number of other complaints were 
issued foUiAvin^ the party by f aimers 
who dainuHl diunage to vehicles, equip- 
ment, a fire and threatening phone 
calls. Fraternity oflicers claimed that 
their meml>ers had nothing to do with 
these incidents. The Dean of Men's of- 
fice has backed them on this claim. 

Richards said that he was satisrfied 
that all the necessary financial restitu- 
tion had been made. He said that other 
C(wnplaints could not be substantiated. 

Kappa Si^ma, while it admitted dam- 
age to Hallett's crops after members 

t<K>k a wrong turn on their way to the 
picnic, denied any other charges. The 
fi-aternity claimed that out.siders caus- 
ed the other tix>uble reix>rted by th(^ 

Aithur Rogers, an p:ast Deerfield 
farmer, originally granted permission 
for the picnic on hLs land. He .said later 
that he was surprLsed to see so many 
ixx>ple and to find what was going on 

At the time of the incident Dcfm Wil- 
liam Field .said that he thought the 
fraternity took its re.s|ionsibility man- 
fully. He ScUd that any disciplinary ac- 
tion by the Council will be recommend- 
ed to the Administration who will act 
on it. 


Elections for the Summei- Student 
p:.\ecutive (Council will l)e held on June 
22 in the Residence Halls. There will be 
one representiitive for each floor and six 
commuter representatives. 

The executive council has tUl the leg- 
islative functions of the Student Senate 
and also plans social events such as 
dances, films and various summer out- 
d(x>r events. The executive council has 
approximately $2,500 to be used on so- 
cial events. 

When asked what some of the major 
projects which the Executive Council 
will handle are, Paul J. Silverman, ad 
visor to the executive council said, "I 
would think that the announced ban on 
Summer Open Houses is the number 
one problem which requires immediate 
ccx)rdinated action, but it is up to the 
Executive Council to make the deci- 
sions and take the action. We will have 
a lot of .students on this campus who 
will bitch if there are no o{x^n houses, 
but how many of them will run for of- 
fice and do .something about it. If the 
executive council fails, it is because 
the students sat back and waited for 
soinieone else to do their job. There is 
enough work in student government for 

There will be elections for Residence 
Hall Governments in the very near fu- 
ture and a summer judiciary is being 
established. Anyone interested in serv- 
ing on the summer judiciary should 
send a brief note to Paul Silverman in 



Student government should have great 
er participation and respoii.->ibility in the 
planning and administration of college 
policies and programs according to edi 
tors of college and university news 

In a nation wide poll conducted by 
Associated Collegiate Press, college pub 
lication association headquartered at the 
University of Minnesota, 70 percent of 
the editors thought that there should be 
more envolvement by students in the 
running of their schools. 


Type of participation ranged from 39 
percent who felt students should be rep 
resented on a faculty selection commit- 
tee to 100 percent for representation on 
committees concerned with disciplinary 
rules for students. 

The editors voted— 90 percent for par 
ticipation on curriculum committees for 
the development of courses and course 
content; 87 percent on planning and 
building committee for facilities; 80 per- 
cent on faculty evaluation committee, 
and 70 percent on faculty senate or 
academic councils. 
As to the degree of participation. 60 
.«^ percent felt the students should be full 

"^ members of each committee with equal 

voting strength per man as faculty and 
administration mr- ' °rs; 30 percent 
stated that students :>nould be ex-officio 
members of committees with full privi- 
lege of discussion without voting rights, 
and 10 percent said students should be 
minority members with half votes. 

Many editors footnoted the question- 
naire with the opinion committees should 
be composed of equal representation 
from the administration, faculty and stu- 
dent body.

The Statesman 


The Aftermath: 


America's political commentators took 
over this week where the mourners of 
Senator Robert Francis Kennedy left off 
in an attempt to explain and correct the 
ailments of what Art Buchwald called 
"the giant insane asylum" that consti 
tutes the nation. 

In a particularly weighted blast against 
the society that murders off those most 
likely to unite it, Harvard economist 
John Kenneth Galbraith blasted the gun 


the President should know, is the effort 
to sweep problems under the rug by ask- 
ing elderly men of great respectability 
and great inertia to study them." 

Galbraith's claim was that if any of 
Johnson's violence commission members 
had anything to say about the condition 
of the Great Society they would have 
said it long ago. 

The author and ambassador to India 
under President Kennedy, left the track 
slightly to ihit home an old point about 
the nature of America's military-indus- 
trial complex and asked that it be sub 

lobbies in Congress, television violence, 
the political right wing and President 
Johnson's recently appointed violence 

Galte-aith, speaking at the Tufts Uni- 
versity commencement, warned against 
a nation that simply wrings its hands 
in anguish and against "men who see 
the absence of violence as the opportun- 
ity for inaction. . . the kind of men I am 
compelled to say, that President John- 
son seems to have uncovered in sur- 
prising numbers to serve on his recently 
announced commission on the subject." 

"One cause of frustration and violence, 

ordinated to civilian authority and goals. 

P«epU Ar* Frightwning 

Historian Arthur M. SchJesinger Jr. 
pointed the finger of guilt less at the 
institutions and more at the people. 

Americans, he said, "Are today the 
most frightening people on this planet." 
He spoke of the war in Vietnam, the as 
sasinations of public officials and said 
that the horrors of the nation exist. "Be 
cause the atrocities we commit trouble 
so litUe our official self rightousness, our 
invincible conviction of our moral in- 

Schlessinger repeated the plea that 

has been falling so consistently on deaf 
ears during the last violent decade of 
the Great Society, "We must recognize 
that the evil is in us, that it ."iprings 
from some dark intolerable tension in 
our history and our institutions." 

A close friend of President Kennedy s 
Schlesinger called out to the intelJeotuai 
community to accept its special responsi 
bilities as the custodian of reason and 
the champion of discipline and restraint. 

High Noon In The 20Hi Century 

"We're not a melting pot. We're a 
damned pressure cooker. Our society is 
not built on restraints of family or class- 
it's built on success. If you don't have 
It you're frustrated. Frustration. The wet 
nurse of violence." 

This was the way Dr. David Abraham 
sen, a psychiatrist and a governor of the 
Lemberg Center for the Study of Violence 
at Brandeis University summed up the 
American Public Condition. 

Continuing he said of violence, "We 
love it. We love to fight. The frontier 
days made the gun manly. In France 
they can riot for three weeks and only 
two people are killed. Can you imagine 
how many would have been killed here?" 

The affluent society drives men to 
seek happiness in a high degree of ma 
terial wealth. When we can't find it 
violence erupts. 

Dr. John P. Spiegel, also at Brandeis. 
noted that the war has had a part to 
play in shaping the violent scenario. 

"We know from historical studies that 
acts of violence increase in time of war. 
When the war ends we can pay more at 
tention to the underlying social problems. 
With the war on. violence is accepted 
and causes additional social stress." 

To Aid and Abel 

And from California came these words 
of thought on America's problems from 
Gov. Ronald Reagan: 

"This nation can no longer tolerate 
the spirit (rf permissiveness that per- 
vades our courts and other institutions. 
"This administration will lend aid and 
support to our local governments and to 
all those who need and request it. We 
will not stand by and see the institutions 
of a free country destroyed by those who 
claim it is being done in the name of 

"This is not a sick society, but a so- 
ciety that is sick of what is godng on in 
this nation." 

Many commentators felt that the gov- 
ernor missed the point, again. 


"What we want is control of our own 
communities. We want the white man 
out. Our goals are political, economic, 
social, everything else. 

"There's no legal way we can get the 
white man out of our neighborhoods. 

Th« Slert«Hnan 



% ^ 

We'll bum him out, and if he comes 
back, we'U just bum ihim out again. We 
will get control of our own communities 
or die in the process. In Detroit we want 
a black mayor and three black congress- 
men at least. We'll get all this. " 

■Richard Slater of Detroit's black ghetto 
thus gives his view of black power. Mr. 
Slater was among those interviewed at 
the recent University Christian Move- 
ment conference in Cleveland, by the 
Christian Science Monitor. 

Adding clarification was Clarence 
Steger, theological student from Atlanta. 
"Black power," he says, "means differ- 
ent things to different people. It first 
meant black people getting together for 
political power. To some people since 
that time it has meant the necessary 
overthrow of the government. 

"I use the term synonymously with 
black consciousness. I mean a black 
unity in which black persons feel a per- 
sonal dignity, are conscious of them 
selves as individuals and as an ethnic 

Observes William Leach, who also 
comes from Detroit's black ghetto: "The 
whole conception is wrong — the white 
man in the black community. This whole 
white government is preparing itself for 
a black rebellion. Mississippi is anything 
below the Canadian border. The white 
man down South is like a wolf, and the 
white man up North is like a fox. Down 
South you see them beating you. You 
know who your enemy is." 

Some younger blacks follow the lead 
of Stokely Carmichael when it comes to 
fighting in Vietnam. Comments Mr. 
Leaoh: "Would I fight in Vietnam? No, 
sir! I'd only be fighting my own people 
in Vietnam, because I relate myselJF very 
closely to the Vietnamese and the other 
non- white races." 

Mr. Steger expresses a growing skep- 

"Until recently, I had been prowar in 
Vietnam. The press was responsible for 
this. But what I had read wasn't neces- 
sarily true. I am more and more inclined 
to believe that there are in fact racial 

Observes Saim Love, student from Mis- 
sissippi State University: "I don't think 
the war in Vietnam is a plot to exter- 
minate the Negro. But I do think it's 
unfortunate that because of his economic 
deprivation and present draft policies the 
NiBgro is catching the brunt of the Viet- 
namese war." 




The push for gnin le^lation in 
Cong:re68 is backed by most Impres- 
sive statistics which the gun lobby- 
ists fail to encounter. The following 
facts offer food for thought: 

Between 1900 and 1966, guns were 
involved in 280.000 murders. 370,000 
suicides, and 145,000 deaths by ac- 
cident. That comes to 795,000 since 
the beginning of this century. 

Many thousands are wounded, 
maimed, or a.ssaulted by Arearins 
ea<^!h year. In 1966 the estimated lig- 
ure was 100,000. 

In a study done by the Library of 
Congress, the rate of homicides by 
giuis was found in 1963 to be 2.7 per 

every 100,000 population. 

By contrast, in Britain, the rate 
was l/55th the American rate. In 
(ierniany, it was almut l/25th the 
American rate. In Japan, it was 
l/65th, and in the Netherlands, it 
was l/90th. 

The suicide rate in this country by 
guns stands at 5.1 per 100,000 — 
roughly 10,000 a year. 

Again, by contrast, this American 
rate is 15 times the rate for Britain, 
6 tiftines the rate for Germany, 50 
times the rate for Japan, and about 
55 times the rate for the Nether- 

The 1968 Presidential Campaign has 
been nocked about by three major events 
tfiat have had the effect of unnerving 

lUB* \2. Iftt 

the nation's most astute political ob 

First, the impressive New Hampshire 
primary victory of Senator Eugene Mc- 
Carthy who rolled up 42'; of the Demo- 
cratic vote. This coupled with the en- 
trance of Senator Kennedy into the race 
provided the setting for what many 
thought was going to be a ItKked horns 
battle between administrative and anti- 
administrative forces. 

The second wave that rocked the boat 
was the withdrawal of President John- 
son from the race. The common foe was 
removed and his replacement. H.H. 
Humphrey was a much harder target to 
hit. "The many faces of the vice-president 
have kept the real Humphrey well hid- 
den and the candidates have yet to get 
a real shot at his political platform. 

Finally, the assasination of Senator 
Kennedy left the Democratic choice be- 
tween McCarthy and Humphrey with the 
latter apparently in the lead. 

McCarthy's losses in California and 
South Dakota have hurt his camp>aign

boost to his potential. 

Instead. Humphrey continues to 
emerge as the man most likely to suc- 
ceed in Chicago this summer. He has the 
broad base of support and with the as- 
sasination of Kennedy this support can 
only strengthen. Where Kennedy and 
McCarthy were once locked in a battle 
in the Ohio primary, most pwlitical ob- 
servers expect that Humphrey will now 
puU an easy victory. 

There is also the question, what be- 
comes of Kennedy's support. Thus far 
the 1968 campaign has been marked by 
an inordinate degree of concern on the 
part of the candidates for the serious is- 
sues facing the nation. The fact that 
Kennedy's appeal was based on his posi- 
tions on issues and that these positions 

were similar to those of McCarthy sug- 
gests that Kennedy supporters may car- 
ry on the goals of their fallen leader 
under another banner. The degree to 
which Kennedy's supporters rally be- 
hind McCarthy will prove crucial to the 
Minnesota Senator.

An Introduction to Toyland 

The UMass athletic department envisions a sportsmen paradise for an intercollegiate 
program that is already the most varied in New England. 

"Coming from Boston, I've always 
wanted to work on Commonwealth Ave- 
nue," said Warren McGuirk. the UMass 
athletic director, as he gazed out his 
office window at the road in front of 
the Boyden Building. 

Nex'. year that's what the road will be 
called. But perhaps in five years, the 
"Yellow Brick Road" would be more 
appropriate. It will pass through a kind 
of Olympic Oz, a sprawling realm with 
dozens of baseball, soccer, lacrosse and 
football fields, the largest outdoor track 
in America, about 40 tennis courts, a 
hockey arena and Boyden, with its swim- 
ming pool, gymnasia and bowling alleys. 
Add another few years and a basketball 
fieldhouse to the horizon. Drive onto 
University Drive and behold Alumni Sta- 
dium, perhaps by that time expanded 
to 40,000 seats. 

Epicurean Delight 

McGuirk is the figurehead of this bud- 
ding Toyland. His stoical, slow-paced 
manner befits a powerful official who 
approaches mandatory retirement. It 
sometimes conflicts with the fervor of 
the coaches under his charge. And yet 
he relishes with almost epicurean de- 
light in surveying the past successes of 
his athletic department and envisioning 
future ones. 

To me, the most interesting aspect of 
the UMass sports scene are the prob- 
lems of the intercollegiate program. As 
for intramurals, suffice it to say that 
thousands take part eagerly with ques- 
tionable officiating but concerned and 
capable administrating. A full-time as- 
sistant will be added soon to the intra- 
murals office; hopefully, he will be 
aware of modern medical advances to 
employ during touch football games. 

As for general physical education, 
while other schools marvel at UMass' 
fully equipped lacrosse classes, some 
students here lead tortured existences 
because they must become acquainted 
with four different sports before gradu 

As for the much-maligned physical 
education curriculum, one distinguished 
journalism professor insists the only 
reason colleges offer the major is to

thereby strengthening recruiting and 
thereby acknowledging the administra- 
tion's reverence for the "athletic mys- 
tique." The professor of course finds the 
phrase "athletic scholarship" a curious 
juxtaposition of words. 

Rock 'n' roll Scholarships 

I hasten to add at this point that it is 
silly to consider the subject matter of 
physical education, includir»g zoology and 
psychology, less noble or trying than say 
the UMass journalism curriculum. Of 
course, arguments against university 
policies of hiring athletes for almost pro- 
fessional franchises are fetching. The 
point is that the rationale behind the 
whole idea of the passing of recom- 
mendations from coaches to the scholar- 
ship committee could easily be applied 
to a more openly ludicrous situation. 
Instead of coaches, why not hire talent 
scouts to search the nation for talented 
high school rock 'n' roll musicians. 
Pay their room and board, supply their 
amplifiers, call them the UMass Redmen 
and book them in shows at the Stadium 
or the Cage. 

At any rate, the idea of "creeping 
athleticism" and the resulting scholar- 
ship predicament UMass faces as a 
result of its membership in the Yankee 
Conference will be discussed in later 
columns. As for now, the reader will 
have to settle for this cursory introduc- 
tion to the UMass athletic department. 

Some observers say the broad UMass 
sports program, the most varied in New 
England, exceeds the needs of the Uni- 
versity. Others complain that it is not 
strong enough, especially in support of 
track and crew, perhaps basketball and 
even football. Bear in mind the tremen- 
dous following on this campus for pro- 
fessional sports. During the past year, by 
far the largest and most spontaneous 
demonstration by the student body was 
not over the war. or Dow, or the Dining 
Commons, or increases in room and 
board. It was the jubilant celebration 
after the Red Sox won the pennant. 

Seeking Radio Outlet 

Despite adequate student support, 
■however, attendance at home foot- 
ball games last fall was disappointing, 

partly because of the lack of a ma- 
jor publicity outlet nearby. After all, 
the Amherst Record is only a small- 
town weekly, and the Hampshire Gazette 
must qualify as one of the worst city 
dailies in the country. More important, 
the Boston sports press persists in for- 
getting that the name Massachusetts 
State College was dropped twenty years 
ago. One autumn weekend, the Globe 
sent four writers and two photographers 
to the Harvard game and nobody to the 
UMass game. For years, McGuirk has 
been seeking unsuccessfully a radio 
outlet in the Boston area for UMass foot- 

"Let's face it," McGuirk says, "foot- 
ball is the core of oui- program. ' And, 
lets face it, gate receipts at the Sta- 
dium provide scholarships for other UM 
sports besides paying for football's own 
heavy expenses. In the Yankee Confer- 
ence, that ijigenious aUianco of six state 
univei-sities who can't decide what level 
of sports they should achieve, UI.I foot- 
ball teams have won 31 games and lost 
three, since 1961. That was the year, 
Vic Fusia, coach, statesman and guru, 
arrived. Those three losses, all decided 
by field goals, cost three Conference 

When one of UMass' prize prodigies. 
Milt Morin of the Cleveland Bix>wns, 
returned from the 1965 Senior Bowl, in 
which he missed kicking two conver- 
sions, he mused, "I can't kick." Fusia 
can't either. Famed for uttering incisive 
quotes like "football is a war wnth 
rules" and ordering third-down punts, 
he nevertheless holds a 47-15-1 record 
at UMass. 

While UM football continues to do- 
minate a conference that frustrates, 
through a binding scholarship liimit, U- 
Mass' ambitions of conquering bigger 
game, other sports enjoy more modi^st 
success in more amateurish surround- 
ings. When basketball coach Jack Lea- 
man leads a prospective recruit on a 
tour of the campus, he sooner or later 
ends up at the 37-yr.-old Curry Hicks

UM considers its home court. Water

And a new facility is probably a de- 
cade away. 

First Since FDR 

Home attendance last year was only 
fair, and UM support at away games 
was negUgible. When the Redmen beat 
UOonn at Storrs last season for the first 
time since Ftanklin Roosevelt's first 
term, the UM contingent was nowhere 
to be seen. 

Baseball fans here enjoy a good brand 
of ball, often played in a numbing 
wind. Directions to the varsity field 
are simple: follow your nose to the ani- 
mal farm in the northwest area and 
you can't miss it. 

Trying to find the track presents a 
more difficult problem. There isn't one. 
To the consternation of a small but 
persevering group of athletes, its com- 
pletion has been delayed another year. 
Dirt needed for present construction of 
other fields in the Boyden area was 
taken from the site of the proposed 
track, causing more months of delay. 
Then officials decided to let the base, 
whenever it is finished, set during the 
winter before applying the $100,000 
surface. All this, of course, comes af- 
ter several years of delay in planning. 
McGuirk still promises that the track 
will Ibe one lane larger than the 10- 
lane track at the University of Penn- 
sylvania, which is generally considered 
the largest track in the country 

Iua« 12, 1968 

An unfortunate sidelight to the track 
procrastination was the retirement of 
long - time coach Bill Footrick. He 
Charged McGuirk with neglecting his 
athletes and added that while less ex- 
perienced coaches were receiving nor- 
mal raises, his salary was as under- 
nourished as the track program. 

One sport that may lose a place to 
play before long is tennis, coached by 
another redoubtable veteran Steve Ko- 
sakowski. The Tobin addition to Bart- 
lett Hall is slated to wipe out most of 
the present tennis courts, and the 40 
new courts across the street will not be 
ready for two or three years. So UM 
tennis buffs may lose, temporarily, 
their place in the sun. 

The team that no one ever sees is the 
golf team. But if it takes inspiration 
from Dick Page, the UM sports infor- 
mation director who scored the first 
hole-in-one of his life soon after be- 
coming golf coach, invisibility will be 

Gymnastics is the only sport at UM 
that competes on the topmost national 
level. Under the gifted and idealistic 
Eric Kjeldsen, the team has attracted 
swarms of spectators although the sport 
is one of the least publicized at UM. 

Recruiting in the Badlands 

Hockey and wrestling have both gain- 

ed young, ambitious coaches recently 
and show early signs of prosperous fu- 
tures. Hockey's John Oanniff is scour- 
ing the badlands of the midwest and 
Canada for talent that established hoc- 
key schools leave aside. Maybe he'll 
have to learn the French expression for 
"UMass will have its own rink some 
day." Until that day UM wall have to 
line the coffers of Amherst College with 
thousands of dollars each year for play- 
ing in Orr Rink. Wrestling's Homer 
Barr has centered his recruiting in 
Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Next 
year he may have a New FJngland title 
team to show for his efforts. 

Lacrosse coach Dick Garber, perhaps 
the most popular coach at UM, has 
gathered several New England power- 
houses in recent years but is reconciled 
to the fact UM may never rate on a 
par with teams from the Maryland 
hotbed. And New England lacrosse suf- 
fers markedly from a scarcity of news- 
paper coverage. 

Another likeable but more outspoken 
coach, swimming's Joe Rogers, dropped 
a bombshell on the athletic department 
last winter when he publicly blasted 
the athletic scholarship system for 
bringing "idiots" to campus. His sport 
does not offer any grants, and Rogers 
says he doesn't want any. The journal- 
ism professor is still applauding. 


I Ajl^cM.A^ 


Freshman English, the biggest single 
teaching operation at the University of 
Massachusetts, is undergoing a face- 

The traditional English composition 
course required of all freshmen departed 
from tradition this year under its new 
director. Dr. Walker Gibson. His new 
concept is that the act of writing can 
be looked upon as play-acting or drama, 
with the writer playing a role. 

In his words: "Choices of language 
are dictated not alone by subject matter 
and not alone by audience but involve 
as well a self-creating act, the taking on 
of a role with a personality, an attitude 
and an identity." 

As he sees it, writing or any act of 
communication is dependent on three 
variables: the character of the writer, 
the nature of the audience and the sub- 
ject. All are interrelated but for stu- 
dents the first may be most important, 
he believes. "When students can be 
brought to realize that all their uses of 
language create a persona or voice 
which can be identified by a reader or 
listener, they can acquire a new sense 
of both their opportunities and their re- 
sponsibilities as users of words," he said. 

Gibson's own writings include two 
books of verse, a composition text, two 
anthologies and the recent book "Tough, 
Sweet and Stuffy: An Essay on Modern 
American Prose Styles." He taught Eng- 
lish at Amherst College before becoming 
director of freshman English at Wash- 
ington Square College of New York Uni- 
versity. He left that post in 1967 to come 
to UMass. 

He calls the concept of writing as 
dramatic role-playing "the one most 
useful breakthrough" he has encountered 
in his years of teaching English. In the 
classes he directs at UMass, the con- 
cept takes the form of encouraging stu- 
dents to take on various roles in their 

One assignment, for example, may re- 
quire the student to convey information 


in a highly formal style; another may 
require a lowly colloquial style. The 
result is the opening up of wide possi- 
bilities for self-expression, according to 
Gibson. "It shows the student he can 
express himself in more ways than 
one," he said. 

Gibson said role-playing in writing not 
only helps students in learning to change 
and reverse roles so that they can see 
a situation from many perspectives, it 
is also the basis of writing style in a 
professional writer. He discounts the 
risk that beginning writers may use 
role-playing to the point of insincerity 
and cynicism. 

"What we say to our students comes 
down to something like this: here are 
some choices of self-expression; adopt 
one tentatively, always aware that it's 
an expression and not a self, and recog- 
nize your opportunity and your responsi- 
bility for choosing and changing in the 
light of your argument, your audience 
and your developing definition of your 
own identity and values," he said. 

Gibson's freshman English program 
stresses first-person writing and favors 
the tudent's own experience, particularly 
his current university experience, as a 
resource for writing. The mechanics of 
good writing are emphasized by stres- 
sing the damaging effects on the audi- 
ence and the argument of poor grammar 
or bad siielling. 

With a teaching staff of 70 graduate 
students and full-time faculty and a^ 
student body of nearly 3000, Gibson's 
freshman domain is bigger numerically 
than a fair-sized liberal arts college. He 
expends a proportionaUy large amount 
of effort in what he calls "teaching the 
teachers"— training graduate assistants 
and young instructors so they reach a 
level of skill and confidence as soon as 
possible. He does this with detailed 
memos, frequent meetings and an "open 
Class" policy. All staff members are 
invited anu new staff members are re- 
quested to periodically sit in on the 
freshman English section that Gibswi

The Statesman 


Ambassador Sol M. Linowitz, U.S. 
Representative to the Organization of 
American States, Friday (June 7) told 
290 graduating seniors at Amherst Col- 
lege that they will best serve themselves 
and their nation by becoming "the gen 
eration of reconciliation" in America. 

Speaking of the tragedy of this week, 
Mr. Linowitz told the graduating class: 
"Robert Kennedy's death was not his 
end. His beliefs, his ideals, his goals are 
the beliefs, the ideals, the goals of you — 
the youth of America. And as long as you 
fight for them, as long as you sustain 
them, as long as you work to make them 
the reality they must someday be, he 
will not die. And neither will John F. 
Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., nor 
any man who toils as they did to bring 
decency and hope into the lives of Ml 

Ambassador Linowitz was one of eight 
recipients of honorary degrees conferred 
by Amherst President Dr. Calvin H. 


"City planning as carried on today 
seems irrelevant. Urban renewal, under- 
funded and low on the priority scale, has 
never approached its potential. Public 
housing as we do it in America is almost 
better left undone . . . The poverty pro 
gram is nothing but a tease. The nega- 
tive income tax is the final despair of 
the white intellectual. It says we do not 
know how to house the poor or to find 
him work, so let us sugar coat the dole," 
said Edward J. Loguc in his address at 
the 90th Commencement at Smith Col- 
lege on June 2. 

Mr. Logue, visiting Maxwell Professor 
of Government at Boston University, is 
president designate of the New York 
State Urban Development Corporation. 
In his address, "Fair Sharing," he told 
Smith College graduating seniors what 
they could do toward solving the "Negro 
problem which has moved to center 
stage in America." 


Hampshire College has received a 
grant of $250,000 from the Old Dominion 
Foundation of New York, President 
Franklin Patterson has announced. The 
grant is for construction of the Hamp- 
shire College Library which is to be con- 
structed by 1970 at a cost of $3,250,000. 

Hampshire College, a new liberal arts 
coeducational college established in co- 
operation with Amherst, Mount Holyoke 
and Smith Colleges and the University 
of Massachusetts, will open in 1970 with 
250 students. The main goals of the new 
college are to experiment with innova- 
tive solutions to the problems of under- 
graduate education and to demonstrate 
the educational and financial advantages 
of cooperative activity among closely 
situated private colleges and a public 

June 12, 1968 


The Old Dominion grant is the fifth 
grant Hampshire College has received 
from a major foundation. The Ford 
Foundation awarded Hampshire a 
$3,000,000 challenge grant to be matched 
with $6,000,000 from private sources dur- 
ing a three-year period. The Sloan Foun- 
dation granted $5,000,000 for develop 
ment of the science curriculum and the 
Fleischmann Foundation contributed 
$200,000 toward the cost of the Hamp- 
shire Library. The Carnegie Corporation 
has given $277,000 for the development 
of a student life program. 

The initial funding for Hampshire Col- 
lege was a $6,000,000 gift from Harold 
F. Johnson, an Amherst alumnus. The 
addition of the unusually strong founda- 
tion support of the Hampshire College 
plans has raised nearly half of Hamp- 
shire College's three-year financial goal 
of $24,500,000. 


"The very term 'coed' is a reminder 
of the still subordinate or ancillary sta- 
tus of women in American society, for 
stag universities talk about admitting 
coeds, while women's colleges talk a- 
bout admitting men," David Riesmcm, 
lawyer, educator, and social scientist, 
told the Mt. Holyoke CJoIlege Com- 
mencement audience Sunday afternoon, 
June 2. 

Mr. Riesmaji devoted a gjood portion 
of his address to a discussion of single- 
sex, primarily women's colleges. 

"Almost everywhere today, the via- 
bility of the single-sex college is being 
re - examined. Indeed, Pres. (Richard 
Glenn) Get tell (Mt. Holyoke) is rather 
unusual in stating in his ten-year re- 
port last fall that there should be room 
for diversity, and that since there were 
young women, and especially brilliant 
young women, who could profit from a 
single-sex institution, Mt. Holyoke Col- 
lege had no plans either to become a 
university or to go coed. 

"Judging from comments in the Mt. 
Holyoke News, and from my general 
sense of things, I would surmise that 
some of the graduating seniors in the 
class of 1968 have more ambivalence 
than that, especaally as you look for- 
ward to a future that for virtually all 
of you will definitely be coed," he said. 


Pres. Thomas C. MendenhaJl has an- 
nounced the appointment of a new com- 
mittee entitled Social Responsibility at 
Smith College. This organization, which 
is currently composed of nine faculty 
members and two undergraduate stu- 
dents, will c<x>rdinate the various plans 
and projects on the campus working to- 
ward the reduction of social tensions 
and the realization of social justice. 
Many of these programs were initiated 
by the faculty, students and the admin-

The move for a trimmed down state 
legislature is making headway. Edgar 
Mills of the Christian Science Monitor 
reports that the drive to cut the size of 
the Massachusetts House of Represen- 
tatives has cleared its first major Bea- 
con Hill hurdle. 

Eighty-five lawmakers, 15 imore than 
the minimum required, voted for the 
oonstitutional amendment, proposed by 
an initiative petition, to cut the House 
memiberslnp from 240 to 160 members. 

But the battle is far from over. The 
really cruci£Ll test will come in either 
1969 or 1970. At that time backers of 
this constitutional reform measure must 
again muster at least 70 legislative 
votes in favor of it to place the issue 
on the 1970 state election ballot for 


The UMass Trustees have given ap- 
proval to a 10 story 400 bed hospital to 
be part of the University's $75 million 
medical school complex in Worcester. 

Plans for the teaching hospital were 
submitted to trustees on Nov. 17 by 
Ritchie Associates Inc. of Chestnut Hill, 
hospital architects. The proposed hospi- 
tal will be connected to the medical sci- 
ences building of the medical school 
which will house classrooms, clinical lab- 
oratories and other academic facilities. 

Trustees approved plans for the med- 
ical sciences building, library and stu- 
dent center last fall as phase one of the 
medical school construction schedule. 
Phase one groundbreaking is set for late 
next spring. 

The school's first class of 16 students 
is scheduled to enter in the fall of 1970. 

Plans for the proposed hospital ap- 
proved yesterday by trustees will be sub- 
mitted to federal officials by June 30. 
They will be reviewed along with the 
university's application for federal funds 
for the facility, at the November meet- 
ing of the National Advisory Council. 

A Department of Health. Education 
and Welfare review committee has en- 
dorsed the latest application for federal 

funds to help build the medical sciences 
building. Revised plans for this part of 
the medical school complex were sub- 
mitted to HEW officials in March. 

The review committee action is pre- 
liminary to submitting the $24.8-million 
request next month to the national Ad- 
visory Council on Education for Health 

Medical school offices have already 
been opened and several volumes of med- 
ical books moved in for a library. The 
medical scho<rf staff will make the build- 
ing its permanent headquarters begin- 
ning in July. 


The University Board of Trustees has

board of trustees voted to spend $300,- 
000 within two academic years to per- 
mit a net increase in the proportion of 
qualified undergrads of disadvantaged 
or deprived backgrounds, whatever 
their race or color. They also voted to

on poverty is collapsing under the pres- 
sures of political power struggles, Ben 
B. Seligman, director of the Labor Re- 
lations and Research Center and pro- 
fessor of economdes at UMass, predicts 
in 'has fiorthcoming book Permanent 
Poverty: An American Syndrome. 

The book, scheduled for June 7 pub- 
lication by Quadrangle Books of Chica- 
go, traces the roots of poverty and ex- 
aniines major poverty cU'eas such as 
Negro slums, the aged, unemployed 
youth, technological displacement, Ap- 
palachia, Mexican - Americans and A- 
nrterican Indians. 

Prof. Seligman charges in his book 
that the war on poverty was launched 
"as a substitute for an integrated so- 
ciety." Congressional niggardliness, 
bureaucratic rivalries, political power 
struggles on the national and local lev- 
els, as well as middle-class aloofness 
have all contributed to administrative 
ineflfeotiveness, he argues. 


University of Massachusetts Press has 
arjnounced the publication of Figures of 
Dead Men by Leoncird Baskin, Smith 
College professor, a photographic study 
with a preface by ArchibaJd Macl-eish. 
The book, with 73 photographs by Hy- 
man Edelstein and othere, is being pub- 
lished in a popular edition and in a lim- 
ited edition. The limited edition of 200 
boxed copies includes an original signed 
two-color woodcut by Mr. Baskin. 

Archibald MacLedsh writes in his pre- 
face that these forms are meant to 
show deatlj — "not only death but a par- 
ticular death, a death we can recognize, 
our own death. . .They are men like our- 
seilves with bodies like ours, slack and 
sedentary, and faces, gross and Roman, 
like our own." 



The Satirical Ro^e on Poetry, a col- 
lection of essays by Robert Francis, 
will be published by the UMass Press 


this month. Francis, in this collection, 
reflects on life and times of a poet. 

Poetry, according to the author, Js 
something special because "no poem is 
so fine that a critic can't damn it if he 
has a mind to, yet you can never feel 
brutal toward a poem."

taining 25 lessons on German grammar 
is intended for college use. The otlier 
two authors are Ellin S. Feld and Ellen

In The Korean Decision, political sci- 
entist Glenn Paige offers the first "re- 
construction" of June 24-30, 1950. the 
days leading up to U.S. entry into the 
Korean War. His study is based on pre- 
viously unpublished interviews with ma- 
jor participants including Dean Husk, 
Dean Acheson and Harry Truman. 

As part of a three-point program for 
"crisis management" based on the e- 
vents of Korea, Paige suggests: "Deci- 
sion makers in crisis are advised to be 
specific about the limits of use of force 
in instructions to imdlitary commanders 
and to devise supervisory techniques for 
ensuring precision of application with- 
in these limits."

The Class of '68 had hardly returned 
to the hills and vales from whence they 
came before several hundred "swing- 
shifters" of the Class of 72 started 
classes. This group of enterprising young 
adults has begun the uphill fight from 
which their predecessors have just re- 
tired so honorably. But their fight has 
been made easier because this year's 
giaduates and those of years past cared 
enough to push for reform. 

o Three years ago all women students 
were restricted by curfews. Thanks to 
the hard work of several reform groups 
and the cooperation of a progressive ad- 
ministration, this situation was reme- 

o It wasn't until this past year that a 
liberal open house policy was passed for 
dormitories, and many of the students 
who fought the hardest for this change 
graduated without ever seeing it in ac- 

• While the academic area of the Uni- 
versity still needs a great deal of revi- 
sion, great strides have been taken to 
abolish useless requirements, to insti- 
tute more contemporary and useful 
courses, and to provide for more stu 
dent involvement in academic decisions 
which will ultimately affect the student's 
learning experience. 


These are some of the improvements. 
But there are many more which are 

It is a fact of life that the solution to 
one problem usually gives to an- 
other, and this could be applied to the 
"no curfew" system. No sooner was it 
instituted before students realized that 
there was nowhere to go on campus af 
ter midnight anyway. And after two 
years the situation hasn't changed -the 
Student Union, supposedly the center of 

campus activity, closes at 11; the li- 
brary, supposedly the center of learning, 
closes shortly after. Neither should ac- 
tually close till 1 or two a.m. At most 
large universities they remain open con 

Of course there are always problems 
with the Massachusetts Legislature. It 
has never been too kind to the Universi- 
ty, though the reasons why aren't t,oo 
clear. Perhaps if a few legislators 
would take the time to ride up here 
some day they might see something to- 
tally different than the Mass Aggie they 
must envision each time they blindly 
chop our budget. 

Then there will probably always be 
fiascos like the decision to put the med 
school in Worcester. Last week's States- 
man carried a story about the 400 bed 
hospital which will be built there next 
.spring. Logically it should be built across 
from the Southwest Residential College 
to provide adequate medical facilities 
for this new center of campus popula- 
tion. The infirmary is overburdened 
now, and the situation isn't likely to im 


So take a look around, swingshifters. 
'There's a lot going on. Much has been 
done and is being done. But much more 
remains for you to do. 

As you proceed to become acquainted 
with UMass during the next few months, 
stop and think now and then of what it 
took to make things the way they are. 

Then decide what you can do to make

Tonight I sit in Vietnam, listening to

Robert F. Kennedy. I am no longer 
proud to be an American. I may never 
again be proud to be an American. The 
thought of bringing up children in a 
country where any depraved madman 
can obtain a weapon and murder any 
one he so chooses, is frightening. 1 
choose not to do so. Should I have chil 
dren someday, I must strongly considei- 
taking them elsewhere to mature. 

I am a member of the armed forces 
of a nation I now deem unworthy of my 
service. Should I die at the ihands of the 
enemy tonight, it will have been in vain, 
for I am no longer proud to be an Ameri 
can. and am not prepared to die for the

Is This Another American Civil War? 

College Press Service 

Six a.m. Saturday morning— A dark 
orange sun just above the horizon is 
struggling with the relentless smog of 
Northern New Jersey. It glimmers and 
flashes on the shiny tracks of the Penn 
Central. We rumble through Princeton 
Junction. Metuchen, New Brunswick, 
Elizabeth, Rahway. 

This is the overnight treiin from Wash- 
ington to New York. It is crowded with 
hundreds of blacks— young families re- 
turning from visits with parents and 
grandparents in the South, or grand- 
mothers on their way to visit their 
children and grandchildren in the ghet- 
toes of New York. Newark, and Phila- 

Scattered through the train are may- 
be two dozen white faces. Most of these 
will be returning over these same tracks 
in eight hours aboard the funeral train 
of Bobby Kennedy. 

The white faces are strained and dis- 
traught. Some of the black faces are 
tired from long train trips from Atlanta, 
New Orleans, or Florida; others antici- 
pate a happy rendezvous with their kin 
in Penn Station; most are inscrutable. 

Eight a.m.— It is full daylight in New 
York City; and it is mercifully much 
cooler than yesterday, when tens of 
thousands waited hours in 90 degree plus 
heat for a brief look at Bobby's casket 
in St. Patrick's. Stores are not open yet, 
and traffic on the streets and sidewalks 
is still light. 


Three hours ago St. Patrick's Cathe- 
dral was sealed off to the public as elab- 
orate security arrangements were initi- 
ated to prevent yet another public assas- 
sination. The Secret Service is out in 
force; President Johnson gives them 
free rein in the protection of his person, 
having effectively retired from any pub- 
lic exposure almost two years ago. 

At the Commodore Hotel, Bobby's 
closest friends and staff are wrapping 
up details for the day's schedule. Thou- 
sands of invitations have had to be is- 
sued; hundreds of train cars, buses, and 
planes, found and chartered; schedules 
worked out and confirmed; VIP's cod- 
dled; and the family cared for. 

There is time neither for rest, grief, 
nor meditation. 

Nine-thirty a.m.— In front of the Ca- 
thedral, on Fifth Avenue, a long, thick 
queue of the invited waits patiently to 
be admitted. They outrmmber only 
barely the ubiquitous New York police. 
New York plainclothesmen, and Secret 
Service. Telegrams and letters of invi- 
tation are carefully scrutinized; ladies 

lune 19, 1968 

handbags and men's briefcases are 
opened and their contents sifted in front 
of television cameras. 

Nobody makes a scene; nobody has a 
chance to. 

Inside, the honorary pallbearers stand 
over the coffin in turn — Nicholas Katzen- 
bach, Laurence O'Brien, Prince Radzi- 
will, Pierre Salii^er, Arthur Schlesinger, 
Sargent Shriver, Andy Williams, and so 
forth. Everyone notices SCLC leader 
Rev. Abemathy in his affected blue den- 

Everyone also notices the heavy, hot 
glare of the TV lights, the section of 
newsmen craning not to miss a face or 
9 tear, and the platform of photogra- 
phers, cameras constantly clicking. 

Ten a.m.— The immediate family, en- 
ters from the back and sits just to the 
right of the coffin in front of the altar. 
They follow President and Mrs. Johnson 
by just a few minutes. 

The Secret Service is everywhere. 

Fifteen minutes later, and that much 
time behind schedule, the service begins. 

Teddy Kennedy, in an unscheduled 
speech, speaks well and with emotion of 
his murdered brother. 

"He saw war, and tried to stop it." 
The President sihrinks a little inside, or 
at least one hopes so. 

Cardinal Cushing's piercing baritone 
monotone is at least of a strength to in- 
spire faith among the deviant, and to 
lend assurance that the soul of the de- 
ceased is at least in good hands. 

Archbishop Cocrfce, delivering the 
eulogy, prefers to be optimistic. He 
urges the audience to look ahead to a 
better future — to return to its ta^ts with 
renewed vigor and a heightened sense 
of responsibility. 

Otherwise, the service is generally 

The press releases explain that there 
are two general themes in the funeral 
Mass, "The dominant spiritual theme of 
joy rising out of the Christian conviction 
that death is the beginning of the full 
life of eternity with God" and "the 
theme of sorrow for the human condition 
of those who mourn his leaving of this 

One is reminded of John Donne, "Ask 
not for whom the bell tolls. . ." 

Eleven-thirty a.m.— The service moves 
ahead quickly, endinig fifteen minutes 

Cardinal Cushing has barely blessed 
the body and commended the Soul to 
God's mercy before the press is heading 
for the side door, and the President for 
the back door. It is fifteen minutes yet 
before the coffin is loaded in the hearse 
for the trip to Penn Station. 

It is clearly a public spectacle — a last- 
ditch effort to paint a facade of stability 
over deepening social crisis. Ethel, Jac- 

queline, and Teddy Kennedy know the 
symbolic reassuring importance of their 
absolute self-control in front of 200 mil- 
lion Americans and heaven-knows-how- 
much of the rest of the world. 

Their composure is perfect — even to 
the point of dressing Bobby's daughters 
in white. 

Now begins the ten-hour pubUc jour- 
ney to the burial site in Arlington Na- 
tional Cemetery. A select thousand are 
put on the fimeral train; another 150 are 
taken to chartered planes. 

The train is 21 oars long — very long 
by passenger train standards in this day 
and age. With three diners and three 
private cars, it is no doubt the best the 
Penn Central has to offer, but that isn't 
very much. 


On board gloom arKi boredom mix into 
a thick pall of unease and disinterest 
Abundant liquor and the more jovial of 
the press work hard, but unsuccessfully, 
at non-lethal conversation; and even this 
much never reaches the cars of guests 
and friends, who stare out the window 
at the passing, sad crowds, at each other, 
or at the seats in front of them. 

The day drags on and on and on. By 
ft ur o'clock, the press is set up and wait- 
ing at Arlington. By five, Washington's 
invitees are gathered around the grave- 
site — most of them standing in the area 
of John Kennedy's memoriaL 

Television marks the slow passage of 
the train through unending crowds and 
through a succession of stations. As it 
moves South, its very slowness seems to 
attract yet larger crowds, forcing still 
greater caution. In all the 225 mile trip 
takes nine hours. 

Ten p.m. — From the gravesite, now 
dark except for TV floodlights, we have 
a commanding view of much of Wash- 
ington, sparkling with a million lights 
across the Potomac. We can see the 
Washington Monument, lit up just across 
the river, and farther away the Capitol 
dome. The Lincoln Memorial, unlit, is 
barely visible at the end of the string 
of h^hts that mark either side of Me- 
morial Bridge; and the White House, also 
unlit since the coming of President John- 
son, lies invisible in the dstance. 

The coffn has been loaded at last into 
another hearse and is being borne in a 
caravan of 24 limousines to the Ceme- 

We see the lights of the caravan reach 
the Lincoln Memorial and pause for a 
choir's final songs. Radios among the 
crowd at the Cemetery connect the lights 
across the Potomac with the chorus 
voices. On one side of the Memorial the

Arriving on campus last Sunday night 
were 355 "swingshift" freshmen, the 
largest class of summer freshmen yet 
to take part in the program designed to 
accommodate more frosh than the Uni 
versity would have space for ordinarily. 

The newcomers, 186 men and 169 wom- 
en, will attend the two six week ses- 
sions of summer school, taking first year 
courses in the humanities, sciences and 
social sciences. In September they will 
return home where many of them will 
work for five months and then return 
in January for the second semester. At 
this time they will be assimilated with 
the other members of the Class of "72 
who were attending school from Septem 
ber to January. 

The "swing shifters" will be housed 
in the Southwest Residential College in 
James, Emerson. Patterson, Thoreau, 
Mehille and McKimmie. The dorms will 
be a mixture of freshmen and summer 
school students. 

The program, which is in its fourth 
year, has had much success, although 
initial reaction was mixed. When the 
program was initiated, the Administra- 
tion was faced with the problem of ac 
cepting 2,600 freshmen from 8.000 qual- 
ified applicants. The figure has now 
risen to one in six. With the hope of 
helping as many of these qualified appli- 
cants as possible. President John W. 
Lederle agreed to the swing-shift pro- 
gram, and 180 interested candidates, 
then on the waiting list, were accepted. 
Of the 180 attending the first summer 
.session, only two were dismissed for 
academic reasons. 

The students, who were at first re- 
luctant to give up their summer vacation 
and summer jobs, were less so when 
they realized they had an opjwrtunity to 
work five months instead of the usual 
three. Many of them also welcome the 
smaller classes. 

Despite the heavy load of classes fol- 
lowed by the swing-shifters, a number 
of recreational activities have been 
planned including live entertainment, 
movies and access to the swimming 



A man who knows a little soniethinR 
about student univst, HU President Dr. 
Arland ('hrist-Janer, told a UMass 
audience last week that new an.swers 
are needed to the questions students 
are raismu. 

Si)eakinK before the 172nd session of 
the New England annual conference of 
the United Methcxlist Church, Christ- 
Janer said that students are seeking 
intellectual equilibrium in face of a 
rapidly changing society. 

Dr. Christ-Janer .said the institutions 
of education and church must co- 
operatively develop an intellectual, 
moral and spiritual logic, centered in 
the life of spirit and faith, in leading 
the young generation to the confronta- 
tion of no A- problems in a changing 

"Students know that old an.swers for 
new problems shatter on the hard 
ground of reality and feel destitute 
when adults continually apply the old 
answers." Dr. Christ-Janer said. "We 
must provide that intellectual equili- 
brium through the establishment of an 
individual and .social value system 
acceptable to modern man." 

He alluded to this .spring's student 
demonstrations and sit-in at Boston 
University but once, stating, "When 
students ask us what are the commit- 
ments and the priorities of society, we 
at times take the fifth amendment, or 
at least seem to in their eyes. We must 
listen to their questions and attempt 
to find out what they are trying to say 
to us. Dr. Christ-Janer said. 


A University of Massachusetts facul- 
ty-student group, backed by a $41,000 
appropriation from the Student Senate, 
has begun a broad program of social ac- 
tion dedicated to the late Martin Luther 
King, Jr. 

The Martin Luther King. Jr.. Social 
Action Council plans tutoring help for 
Negro and other students, participation 
in a Northern Educational Service sum 
mer camp and other projects. 

Council founder and board member 
Gilbert J. Salk, Springfield senior, said 
that the group started as a result of 
memorial services at UMass for the slain 
civil rights leader April 9. "It became 
clear after this that local action for bet 
ter social relations was needed." Salk 
said. "The need for some central council 
to act as an initiating, activating and 
coordinating body quickly became ap 

Rev. Ronald Hardy. UMass Protestant 
chaplain, is council chairman. The 11- 
member board of directors includes four 
students, three faculty and four other 

A major council effort will be a cam 
pus tutoring project to help overcome 
the educational deficiencies of those 
freshmen who come to UMass in the fall 
from economically and culturally de- 
prived backgrounds, particularly 125 spe 
ciallyadmitted Negro .students. 

The King council has earmarked ap 
proximately $,30,000 of its Student Senate 
appropriation for the tuU)ring effort. The 
council will hire qualified graduate stu 
dents and pay them to work approxi 
mately 20 hours a week, each graduate 
student tutoring about 10 students. Un 

dergraduate and faculty volunteers will 
be recruited to work on a one-to-one 
basis with .students as needed. Council 
board member Dr. William WiLson, as 
si.stant professor of .sociology, Ls chair 
man of the tutoring project. 

The council will help with the 
operation of a summer camp in Gashen 
which has been put at the dispx>sal of 
Northern Educational Service of Spring 
field this summer. The council will work 
with Andy Griffin, NES director and 
King council board member, in setting 
up programs, recruiting counselors and 
other tasks. 

The King council directors, in addition 
to those mentioned, include UMass Pro 
vost Oswald Tippo. Associate Dean of 
Students Mark Noffsinger. Asswiate 
Prof. Isidore Silver and Profes.sor Rob

The fii'St graduate program in com- 
parative literature to be offered by a 
public university in New England will 
begin at the University of Massachusetts 
this fall. 

The program will offer M.A. and Ph.D. 
degrees in comparative literature. 
Courses by faculty from the program in 
comparative literature and from Eng 
lish and modern language departments 
will study western literature as a com 
prehensive whole, concentrating on 
cross cultural problems in literary his 
tory and criticism. 

Director of the program is Dr. Wolf 
gang B. Fleischmann, UMass profes.sor 
of comparative literature. The author 
of 50 articles, reviews and tran.slations 
in the field of comparative literature, he 
is the author of a book on Lucretius and 
English literature and general editor of 
a three volume reference work entitled 
"Encyclopedia of World Literature in the 
20th Century." of which Volume I ap 
peared last December. 


Ben B. Seligman, director of the 
Labor Relations and Research Center 
and professor of economics at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts, was one of 
four distinguished Brooklyn Cx>llege 
alumni presented Citations of Honor 
on June 12 at tne college's 4'Md com 
mencement exercises. 

Prof. Seligman. a 1934 graduate of the 
college, was honored for "outstanding 
contributions to the field of economics 
and inspiration as a teacher and writer." 
He is the author of more than 100 arti 
cles and .seven books, the most recent 
being "Permanent Poverty: An Ameri 
can Syndrome," published June 7.

and Brazil to study urviversity curricula 
in the field of labor economics and make 
recommendations for their further de- 

Approaches to be considered will in- 
clude establishing labor libraries, en-

WASHINGTON (CPS) — The Supreme 
Court has refused to review the con- 
tempt citation of a former student editor 
who would not reveal the names of sev- 
en student marijuana users she inter- 

The student, Mrs. Annette Buchanan 
Conard, interviewed the marijuana users 
for a story which appeared in the May 
24, 1966 edition of the University of Ore- 
gon Daily Emerald, of which she was 
managing editor. After the story ap- 
peared, Mrs. Conard was subpoenaed by 
Eugene, Ore. District Judge William 
Frye, but she refused to reveal the 
names of the students she had inter- 
viewed to a gand jury, despite a court 
order demanding that she do so. She was 

cited for contempt of court and fined 

In refusing to review the case, the 
Supreme Court upheld Mrs. Conard's 
conviction, which had been upheld in 
January by the Oregon Supreme Court. 

In her defense, Mrs. Conard argued 
that the Constitutional provisions for a 
free press include the right of a reporter 
to withhold the identity of confidential 
news sources. The state maintained that 
her refusal to reveal the names con- 
stituted withholding information neces- 
sary for the arrest and prosecution of 
drug users. 

Presently, only 13 states have a law 
which permits newsmen to refuse to re- 
veal confidential sources, as doctors, 
lawyers, and ministers can.

News Editor Jim Foudy's compilation of the week's news highlights. 


In 1918 an anarchist named Abrams 
protested the sending of troops to 
Russia by President Woodrow Wilson. 
Abrams was accused of interfering with 
the war effort against Germany when 
he advocated strikes by munitions 
workers in a pamphlet distributed in 
New York. He was found guilty. 

Now, 50 years later, another quilty 
verdict has been handed down on the 
question of public dissent of govern- 
ment policy. Dr. Benjamin Spock and 
three others were found guilty of con- 
spiring to counsel yotmg men to evade 
the draft. 

Marcus Raskin 34. co-director of the 
Institute for Policy Studies in Wash- 
ington, was acquitted. But, Spock, the 
Rev. William Sloane Coffin, Jr.. 43. 
chaplain of Yale University, Mitchell 
Goodman, 44, an author from Temple. 
Me., and Michael Ferber. a 23 year old 
Harvard graduate student from Buf- 
falo, N.Y., each face five year jail terms, 
fines of up to $10,000. or both. 

Attorneys for Dr. Spock and three 
other defendants met Saturday to plan 
an appeal which may take their land- 
mark case of conscience, dissent and 
the law to the U.S. Supreme Court. 

In summation last week the de- 
fense attorneys reminded the jury 
that the charge the government leveled 
against their clients was conspiracy, 
according to the Christian Science 

Among the points emphasized by the 
defense counsels was the openness and 
non-violence of the defendants' actions. 
In .such overt acts as the Oct. 16 Arling- 
ton Street Church service in Boston, the 
Oct. 20 demonstration in Washington, 
and the Dec. 5 Whitehall induction 
center sit-in in New York City, the 
defense defied the jury to find any 
resort to violence. 

Another defense point was the 
apparent casualness of the defendants' 
relationship to one another. It was 
reiterated that Marcus Raskin, until an 
Oct. 2 press conference in New York 
City, had never met any of the other 
defendants. The jury was reminded that 
the Rev. Dr. William Sloane Coffin. Jr. 
had never met fellow defendant Michael 
Ferber until the Oct. 16 service in the 
Arlington Street Church, and that Dr. 
Spock barely knew Mitchell Goodman 
when both men participated in the New 
York sit-in. Yet all of these incidents 
occurred well into the alleged con- 
spiracy, the defense attorneys said. 

The defense counsels contended that 
what their clients did and said were 
forms of speech protected by the Con- 
stitution. All defense counsels freely 


admitted that their clients had com- 
mitted the various overt acts of which 
the government accused them. They 
maintained, however, that these acts 
were not the fabric of an elaborate con- 
spiracy designed to disrupt the draft 
system, but rather were valid forms of 
expression motivated by the highest 

The defense completed its final argu- 
ments in a Thursday morning session. 

Assistant United States Attorney 
John Wall presenting the government's 
case, described for the jurors just what 
constitutes "conspiracy." 

He told them that in a conspiracy it 
is not necessary that the defendants 
know each other. He said that each 
member of a conspiracy is liable for 
the acts of all the other members. 

Mr. Wall also said circumstantial 
evidence could be admitted in a con- 
spiracy case because the whole concept 
was so tied with the circumstantial 
concept of intention. 

He said conspiracy was essential in 
law because it was a good check on 
organized crime. He said the best evi- 
dence of a conspiracy is the extent to 
which it achieved its goals. 

Mr. Wall held that the government 
had proved the defendants had suc- 
ceeded in violating the selective-serv- 
ice law and that their counseling was 
done with the interest to incite selec- 
tive-service registrants to violate that 
law. He cautioned the jurors that before 
they reached a verdict they must be 
satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that 
such an agreement existed. 

He further said that even if a defend- 
ant had urged those who had alread> 
made up their minds to resist the draft 
to do so in the eyes of the law that 
was enough. 

Mr. Wall reminded the jury thai 
according to testimony every defendant 
e-\cept Michael Raskin had admitted 
that it was his intent to urge those who 
had already made up their minds to 
avoid the draft. 

He said to the jury that Dr. Spock 
had more than convicted .himself by 
saying that he tried to reach even 
who were ignoring the issue of the war. 
He said that although there were some 
defendants whose testimony was less 
than creditable, Dr. Spock seemed to 
be the most candid and honest of them 

The following are the arguments for 
appeal in the case of Dr. Spock as 
listed by the Christian Science Monitor. 

Defense attorneys say they will con- 
tend that: 

— There was no conspiracy. 

—The defendants were within their 
constitutional rights of free speech and 
freedom of assembly as guaranteed by 
the First Amendment. 

—The jury selection was prejudice I 
in that only nine women were among 
the 100 prospective jurors and that a 
jury selection system which results in 
a women-men ratio of 3 to 1 is pre- 

—The legality of the Vietnam War is 
an issue. 

The war legality question should 
have been ruled admissible as evidence. 

—Certain portions of the Selective 
Service Act are an unconstitutional 

C 4

interference with free speech. 

TTie defendants believed and acted 
in g(xxi faith that they were following 
the Constitution and, therefore, their 
acts were not criminal. 

The con.spiracy trial was a test 
case^-that is, if the defendants acted 
not for the sake of accomplishing evil, 
but to test the law, then that is not 
criminal intent for a conspiracy. 

The government did not prove what 
it had alleged in the indictment. 

—Judge Ford should not have divided 
the charge "conspired to counsel, aid 
and abet" into three different crimes in 
his instructions to the jury. 

If, indeed, there was one conspiracy, 
then there were, in fact, four or more. 

Judge Ford should not have declared 
irrelevant whether youths had already 
made up their minds to turn in draft 
cards, and that the defendants are not 
guilty because the youths who turned 
in draft cards had already made up 
their minds to do so. 

Resist, a national anti-draft and anti- 
war organization, "deplored" Saturday 
the guilty verdict returned against Dr. 
Benjamin Spock and three other men 
and said it would continue its anti- 
draft programs until the Vietnam war 
is ended. 

"These men did nothing deceitful or 
hidden," said national director Paul 
Lauter, reading from a prepared state- 
ment. "Theirs was an honest expression 
of opposition to a war they, and we, 
see as illegal and immoral, and the root 
of much of the violence and horror 
gripping this country.

mulators of America's Vietnam war 


A 19-year-old Leverett girl remained 
free early this week, despite her viola- 
tion of laws when she poured black 
paint on \.\\^ Selective Service files in 
the Boston Custom House on June 4th. 

Miss Suzanne Williams of Teawaddle 
Hill, who said she is a pacifist, de- 
scribed the act as one of "creative van-

between young men and the conscrip- 
tion that sends them to their death."

fices of Selective Service Board" 30 in 
Boston June 4 and, without speaking, 
^ured two cans of black paint on draft 

Upset at news stories following the 
event that "distorted" the act. Miss 
Williams this week mailed a clarifying 
statement to news media to "communi- 
cate the straight facts to the public." 

"We did not rush from the building 
after pouring the paint," Miss Williams 
said in her family's rambling white 
farmhouse Monday evening. "We spent 
approxinr.ately 10 minutes in the draft 
board offices, and when we were asked 
to leave, we did so without haste." 

The slight pretty teenager, whose 
father, UMass. Prof. Schafer Williams 
is in Italy studying ancient manuscripts 
in his role as a medieval historian, said 
she is against all forms of violence and 
believes that war is wrong. 

Defining violence as "any action that 
is harmful to human beings," Miss Wil- 
liams said she fully expects to be ar- 
rested for her actions. 

Two weeks ago. Miss Williams said 
she was "tear gassed and bruised" by 
Boston police during a melee at the 
Arlington Street Church when police 
removed a draft resister who had 
sought sanctuary there. Miss Williams 
said she was detained by police for one 
hour after she "got in the way" during 
the arrest. 

A veteran of antiwar and antidraft 
stands during the past two years. Miss 
Williams said she has been arrested so 
often that she cannot recall the exact 
number. She served two months in jail 
in Washington after being arrested out- 
side the Pentagon last fall, when she 
said, she attempted to "cool down the 
hot heads" in the antiwar demonstra- 
tions there. 


The Supreme Court ruled on two ma- 
jor issues of Constitutional law last 
week in upholding the right of police to 
stop and frisk suspects and sanctioning 
a New York law that requires public 
school systems to lend textbooks to pri- 
vate schools. 

The New York Times noted the rul- 
ing gave the police virtually the full 
range of powers that law enforcement 
representatives had asked' of the Court. 
It rejected appeals by civil rights and 
civil liberties groups to limit the "stop 
and frisk" power of the police. 

Harassment Feared 

The American Civil Liberties Union 
and the N.A.A.C.P. Legal Defense and 
Educational Fund, Inc., .had argued that 
if the high court made such a ruling 
the power would be used to harass Ne- 
groes and other minority groupfe. 

However, the Chief Justice laid down 
a rule of reasonableness that wiU per- 
mit policemen to search susjjects when 
"a reasonably prudent man in the cir- 
cumstances would be warranted in the 
belief that his safety or that of others 
was in danger." 

Although the police in most com- 
munities have been stopping and frisk- 
ing suspects for years, the question of 
whether the practice violated the 
Fourth Amendment to the Constitution 
was not meaningful until 1961. In that 
year the Supreme Court held that evi- 
dence obtained in violation of that 
amendment could not be used in state 

The Fourth Amendment declares in 
part that "the right of the people to 
be secure in their persons, houses, pa- 
pers and effects, against unreasonable 
searches and seizures, shall not be 
violated, and' no warrants shall issue, 
but upon probable cause ..." 

This has been construed by the Su- 
preme Court to mean that the police

The Twenty Formula: What Next 
For the Yankee Conference? 

Consider the most significant peace 
treaties of the '60's. The nuclear test 
ban, the Space Rescue Treaty, the 
Nixon -Rockefeller Treaty of Fifth 
Avenue, the UMass med school com- 
promise, the N.F.L..-A.F.L. merger. Sug- 
gest some more. 

Then ask a UMass athletics official or 
coach or a sports-inclined alumnus what 
indeed is the most important peace 
treaty of the '60's. He'll reply, tersely 
and bitterly, "The Twenty Formula." 
He might also ask, "What's the nuclear 
test ban?" But that's irrelevant. 

Now picture AJumni Stadium in 1966 
as UMass wins the Yankee Conference 
title by beating New Hampshire. Only 
6,000 fans show up in a stadium that 
holds 22,000. A light rain is falling and 
the students have left for a vacation. 
More important, the feeling is wide- 
spread that UMass football has achieved 
a boring level of invincibility in a Con- 
ference of weak sisters. 

Now focus on a gentleman in a crowd 
emerging from the University of New 
Hampshire stadium on another rainy 
afternoon, this time in 1967. It was a 
close game but, ho-hum, UMass has just 
won another Beanpot. UMass President 
John W. Lederle, proud of his school's 
achievements in sports, is talking shop 
with the president of New Hampshire. 
"You know," he says, "we have a fresh- 
man coming next year who can run the 
hundred in 9.5." 

Cigarets and Salvation 

In the locker-room of the champion 
Redmen, who have just had to fight for 
their lives, Coach Vic Fusia is mutter- 
ing, "The only thing gocxi about this 
trip is the price of cigarets." 

Something is amiss in UMass sports, 
and it involves more than nearly losing 
Conference football gaunes. It's called 
the Twenty Formula and as long as it 
remains intact UMass football teams 
my find it increasingly difficult to com- 
pete evenly with any major school out- 
side the Yankee Conference. Coach Jack 
Leaman and his basketball teams may 
suffer hardships inside and outside Con- 
ference competition. So the athletic de- 
partment is looking to Dr. Lederle, the 
UMass sfKjrts fan, for salvation. 

The Twenty Formula is a pact, drawn 
up in 1964 by the six Yankee Confer- 
ence universities, limiting the number 
of full scholarships each school can 
award to twenty per year, or the equi- 
valent in partial grants. It covers foot- 
ball, basketball, baseball, soccer and 
trek, and went into effect when the 
class of '70 arrived. 

It immediately invoked a flurry of an- 
gry oaths by UMass coaches and the 



By Tom FitzGerald 

I>eopfe""t6 whonri Aliimhi Stadium was 
dedicated. For if athletic director War- 
ren McGuirk hates the adjective "big- 
time," there are those at UMass who 
hate the whole idea of "small-time." The 
foot belli hawks have championed a two- 
fold proposition: tell the Yankee Con- 
ference where to deposit its Beanpot and 
revamp the schedule to consist, perhaps, 
of B.C., Connecticut, Holy Cross, Har- 
vard, B.U., Buffalo, Rutgers, Dartmouth. 
Villanova and Colgate. Some would like 
to take on the big ones of the East, Penn 
State, Syracuse, Army and Navy. 

Memo from Lederle 

UMass administrators, more dovish 
and probably more realistic, point to the 
mammoth scheduling problems that 


Back down to earth. 

would ensue if UMass suddenly jumped 
the league. Then, too, the other Confer- 
ence members, angered at losing the 
consistently top gate attraction in the 
Conference, could conceivably band to 
lK>ycott UMass in all other sports. 

President Lederle stands center-stage 
in the dilemma. This week, when he 
meets with the other Conference presi- 
dents in Burlington, Vt., the Twenty 
Formula may just become the Twenty- 
five Formula. Even that revision, re- 
portedly favored by most of the Con- 
ference athletic directors, will not ap- 
peal to everyone at UMass. A few weeks 
ago. Dr. Lederle sent a memo to his five 
counterparts recommending that one of 
a list of revisions be made. They in- 
cluded 1) complete alx)lition of the Con- 
ference scholarship limit, a reversion to 
the pre-Formula theory of every-school- 
for-itself but with detailed records of all 
athletic scholarships; 2) a Twenty 
Formula covering only football; 3) a 
Twenty-Five Formula limited to football 
and basketball; and 4) a Twenty-five 

Formula covering the original fivo 

UMass and Rhode Island appear to 
lean toward the second proposal, and 
burgeoning UConn is also likely to pre- 
fer a liberal revision. But the fact that 
a full scholarship at one schfx)l is not 
remotely close, in dollars and cents, to 
that at another may imf>ede this re- 
formist attitude. Vermont's tuition 
costs, in particular, are several times 
those of UMass, evidently because 
Montpelier is stingier with a buck than 
Boston. Vermont, as a result, is con- 
templating cutting its football program 
to the bone. New Hampshire officials, 
who have concentrated their athletic 
scholarship funds almost exclusively on 
football and hockey, might prefer a 
Twenty-five Formula for the five sports 
so that the other schools will be spread- 
ing their assets thinner. Maine professes 
not to give any athletic scholarships at 
all anH ♦his, of course, is exempt from 
Formulae and other mundane dealings. 

Despite such complexities, when the 
Conference athletic directors held their 
own private festival at Newport. R.I.. 
three weeks ago. the directors of the 
northern schools opted for an upward 
revision of the Scholarship limit, if only 
to stop the grumbling in Amherst, Storrs 
and Kingston. 

Aimed at UMass 

From the UMass standpoint, as I see 
it. three facts point to the inevitability 
of a revise-or-else proposition: 1) UMass 
is rivaled by only one Conference school, 
Connecticut, in student numbers and 
sports enthusiasm; 2) UMass could mus- 
ter far more funds for athletic scholar- 
ships than stipulated by the Twenty 
Formula or, for that matter, a Twenty- 
five Formula (the regulation has left 
vast alumni resources largely untapped); 
and 3) Vic Fusia wants to beat B.C. 

At least some of the Conference schools 
have awakened from the delusion that 
the Twenty Formula is a symbol of 
strength and solidarity. The scholarship 
limit was originally aimed, of course, at 
cutting UMass' athletic ambitions down 
to size. One Conference official had been 
quoted as saying, "Wait til UMass { foot-

more constructive spokesman had the 
nerve to predict that, even with the

ence could surpass the Ivy League in 
athletic quality and perhaps compete 
evenly with any school in the East. He 
evidently forgot that although the Ivies 
don't offer athletic scholarships, each 
.school admits far more than 20 athletes 
a year on ample financial aid. The Ivies 
also have nation-wide hordes of alumni- 
scouts. And the phrase "any school in 
the p:ast" suggests completion with one 
of the football factories. 

Perhaps the presidents will do nothing

santries or discuss 9.5 sprinters. Then 
again, maybe the moment of truth has 
arrived. Even those among the UMass 
faithful who like me. would prefer a 
universal dissolution of the athletic schol- 
arship system, should have, as Sen. Mc- 
Carthy would say. a residual commit- 
ment to a policy in which UMass will 
seek its own level in sports, within or 
without the Yankee Conference. Dr. 
Lederle should convey that policy to

In the textbook case the Court ruled

Supreme Court Associate Justice Wil- 
liam J. Brennan last week made an at- 
tempt to bridge the generation gap. 

Brennan asked the members of a 
graduate alumni luncheon at Harvard 
University to treat student protests 
with the same respect they have given 
the recent civil rights movement and 
called on them to act when action was 

"There is substantial doubt, I know, 
that the techniques used to enforce 
Constitutional rights of Negroes are 
legitimately transplanted to the cam- 
pus," Justice Brennan said. 

"But can anyone realistically deny 
that a comparable phenomenon is tak- 
ing place? 

"Students demand a voice in the de- 
cisions that affect their lives, and 
breathe defiance when that voice is de- 
nied them. 

"Much that they have seen has also 
sparked anger in the rest of us; the 
difference is that they are more impa- 
tient to do something about it." 

The eminent jurist, a 1931 Harvard' 
Law graduate, noted that modem stu- 
dents are brighter and better prepared 
than his own generation. 

"We must accept, then, that real 
grievances underlie the massive center 
of student anger. It is a challenge that 
warrants a sympathetic reception and 
the pressing matter now is to determine 
what is to be made of it," he continued. 

"The critical question posed by resort 
to direct action is whether the system 
itself is responsible, whether there are 
in fact established" channels, or mean- 
ingful ones, which the dissenters can 
justly be required to resort to?" 

"I think that question is starkly posed 

In m^mnriam 


To my friends: 

Don't send a card 
Just work for peace 



by student protest as much as it has 
been by the Negro Civil Rights move- 
ment, the current Poor People's Cam- 
paign, and others in our history." 

"I do not suggest," he said, "that de- 
cisions on everything should be turned 
over to the students. That is the rhe- 
toric of confrontation politics and can- 
not be taken seriously. I have no blue- 
print for an ideal structure of student 
participation, though many models are 

But he added: If the reaction of so- 
ciety to violent protest is limited to the 
restoration of order, preservation of the 
status quo, then that social order has 
ceased to function properly. It is up 
to society to prove that the protestors 
are wrong."

A plan to reorganize Columbia Uni- 
versity and evoke positive new pro- 
grams in the aftermaith of last month's 
rioting has been prepared by three fac- 
ulty members of the study committee 
named by the Independent Faculty 

According to the usually reliable Netc 
York Times, the proposal urges that a 
third of the board of trustees be mem- 
bers of the faculty, elected by the fac- 
ulty, and that the head of the univer- 
sity, though appointed by the board of 
trustees, as at present, would be chos- 
en with the advice and consent of the 

The thrust of the new program would 
be to downgrade the importance of ad- 
ministrative work and increase the em- 
phasis on teaching and scholarship. 
Thus, all deans would be elected from 
and by the faculty for three-year rotat- 
ing terms and would have to do some 
teaching while deans. 

Student-faculty committees would be 
set up for discipline, and to set up 
courses in contemporary social issues. 
The students would be in charge of reg- 
ulating their dormitories. The dormi- 
tories are now governed by proctors, 
the dean's office and the students. 

In explaining the proposal during in- 
terviews yesterday. Professor Mclman 
and Professor Morgenbesser pointed 
out that at present there were no fac- 
ulty members on the board of trustees, 
and spoke of the gap that had devel- 
oped between administrators and facul- 
ty at the university. 

'There are many colleges today 
where members of the faculty are mem- 
bers of the board of trustees," Profesr 
sor Melman said. 

And Professor Morgenbesser said 
that "a teacher-scholar should stay a 
teacher-scholar so that the university 
remains a community of teacher-schol- 

For a Faculty Cabinet 

Other points in the proposfd call for 
the following things: 

The top administrative body of the 
university would be a faculty cabinet, 
with the members serving two-year 
overlapping terms and continuing teach- 
ing. Two members would be from the 
junior faculty. 

A faculty senate would be in charge 
of academic and regulation at each of 
the university's schools. 

Purely administrative work that re- 
quires no teaching background would 
be in the hands of a permanent admin- 
istrative staff that woukT be a sort of 
civil service. Administrative decisions 
would be subject to control of the fac- 
ulty cabinet.

Of student discipline. Professor Mel- 
man said: 

"We have to get out of the bind of 
worrying about how to penalize stu- 
dents. We want to create a university 
in which the students will have so 
much pride we will not have to worry 
about confrontations. There is a decided 
difference between 50 hard-core radicals 
demonstrating and 3,000 in motion."

They stand m a close circle around one

How long business-as-usual can be 
maintained is another question. 

When John Kennedy was murdered 
there remained to this country's govern- 
ment a vast pool of political leadership 
and intellectual and financial resources 
for the continuation and expansion of the 
New Frontier. There are no such sour- 
ces of strength now. 

There are no billions readily available 
and there is no leadership available to 
find them and use them, to accommo- 
date the blacks' felt demands. 

There is no evident way out. and there 
is no leadership available to find it or 
effect it, of a huge, self-perpetuating and 
self-defeating war in Southeast Asia. 

Bu.siness-as-usual is becoming more 
and more a fool's game, played in the 
absence of thought and in the presence 
of both tragedy and revolution.

Pete Hamill, the writer of the following 
article, was with Robert Kennedy In Loa An- 
geles when he was atsaisinated. He and col- 
umnist Jimmy Breslin were described In the 
Village Voice as "two gut journalists who never 
went to college, but who Kennedy sensed knew 
more about America than the erudite Lerneri, 
Restons, and Wechslers." 

The article first appeared in the June 20 is- 
tues of the Voi«e under the heading "Warning 
from RFK Camp: It's Got to Be A/VcCarthy". It 
has a lot to «ay about our politics, our govern- 
ment, our people, end our future. — JHD 

The letter was from my brother John 
who is 18 years old and a paratrooper 
in Vietnam. He wanted to know what 
had happened to America, what had 
happened to Robert Kennedy, what had 
happened to Martin Luther King, and 
what had happened to the rest of us, 
who seem so incapable of stopping our- 
selves from killing each other. On the 
back of the envelope he quoted a line 
frum Dylan: "It's all over now. Baby 

So I wrote back and tried to explain 
something about what had happened, 
and tried to say words that would make 
the kid want to keep himself alive. And 
was lying. Dylan was probably right. 

It's all over now. Baby Blue, be- 
cause 2000 men with silk suits and big 
cigars are apparently going to choose 
the next President of this country, and 
if that happens, then democracy is 
dead. If the citizens of this country are 
ignored, then we have become citizens 
of a totalitarian state, with those 2000 
delegates serving as the equivalent of a 
Communist central committee. To them, 
it does not se«m to matter that the 
primaries showed overwhelming opposi- 
tion to the policies of the Johnson - 
Humphrey Administration. It does not 
matter that a lot of young people had 
walked away from the blind alleys of 
drugs and the desperation of nihilism 
to work inside the system for Kennedy 
or Eugene McCarthy. None of it matters 
to them. It doesn't seem to bother Joe 
Alsop, the only true competitor Art 
Buchwald has; he awarded the nomi- 
nation to Humphrey before Kennedy's 
body was cold. It apparently doesn't 
bother the Times either. 

And yet, those of us who supported 
Kennedy must now work for McCarthy 
because it is the only way we can come 
out of this desperate season with any 
honor at all. You can begin to break 
down the Kennedy supporters from this 

Senator Eugrene McCarthy 

day forward. TTiose who supported 
Kennedy for his ideas and his programs 
will go with McCarthy. Those who were 
for Keniiedy because they wanted to 
suck around the roots of power will 
switch to Humphrey. And I hope that 
those who switch to Humphrey are 
reminded every hour of all the days of 
their lives that in doing so they are 
spitting on Robert Kennedy's grave. 

I have only small hopes that Mc- 
Carthy can stop the central committee 
from handing the nomination to Hum- 
phrey. But it must be made clear to 
thero that the young people and the 
decent people of this country will not 
stand for Humphrey's nomination. If 
Humphry is nominated, the young and 
the decent wiU make it impossible for 
him to campaign. If he is elected, they 
will make it impossible for him to 

That is why this is the greatest polit- 
ical crisis of our history; if Humphrey 

/v\Avii;>it« _ 

H«'t b«*n wMrIng It so long 
ho thinks It fits. 

is elected, in crass violaticm of the will 
of all those people who have had a 
chance to vote on the question, then 
there is a serious possibility that the 
American experiment will be over. The 
turmoil of the past three years will 
look like kindergarten. 

I must say here that I have spent 
time with Humphrey, campaigning 
around the country with him in 1964, 


and once thought of him as an enor- 
mously likeable man. It is possible that 
he is still a likeable man. But in 1968, 
he has too much blood on his hands, 
and he has become the property of 
the most malevolent forces in American 
life. His supporters have said to me: 
"Hubert had no choice. He had to sup- 
port the President." Rubbish. Humphrey 
was always free to resign in protest 
against the war; instead, he became 
an obsequious valet to Johnson, cheer- 
leading the vicious effort in Vietnam 
with even more sest than Johnson him- 

In addition, Humphrey is now the 
property of George Meany and the other 
smooth-handed bigots who run the trade 
umons. He is the property of the South- 
em racists who are now his most 
energetic supporters (that was not 
Eugene McCarthy walking arm in arm 
wath Lester Maddox). He is a prisoner 
of the big-city bosses, the very men 
whose stupidity, age. and backward- 
ness have contributed so much to the 
cnsis of the cities. He is the property 
of all those Washington wheeler-dealers 
con-men, and husUers who are so aptly 
symbolized by his cherished friend 
lawyer Max Kampelman (take one part 

Abe Fortas, one part Bobby Baker, mix 
thoroughly, and indict on sight). Even 
worse, Humphrey is also the property 
of all those icy cold warriors whose 
heart lies forever interred in 1953. 

Eugene McCarthy is the property of 
no one. 

Under Humphrey, it would be im- 
possible to do all those things that are 
necessary to repair America. Revolution 
is out of the question; but with Hum- 
phrey, there is not even a possibility of 
reform. He could not recognize Red 
China. He could not lift the ugly block- 
ade of Cuba and recognize that after 10 
years in power Fidel Castro is worth 
more than threats. He could not begin 
the dismantling of all those stupid 
Protestant missionary alliances con- 
structed by John Foster Dulles, one of 
o^i^ has already cost the lives of 
25 000 Americans, and maimed another 
150.000 more. He could not force the 
construction unions to integrate He 
could not move to break up the miU- 
tary-industrial complex. He could not 
break up the beef trusts and bring the 
oil and gas people under some control 
He could not put teeth into the 
regulatory agencies. 

Humphrey couHd not walk Harlem 

after walking with Lester Maddox He 
could not say simply about Vietnam 
We were wrong. The war's over We 
have better things to do with our blood 
and our money." He could not take the 
CIA out of the operations business, and 
make It an agency solely responsible 
for collecting information. He could not 
even fire J. Edgar Hoover, possibly the 
single most useless cretin in America 
(he could, perhaps, donate Hoover to 
the Smithsonian Institution). 

Eugene McCarthy, after six months 
remauis a free man. Many of the 
Kennedy people don't like him. and 
dont think he would make a good 
President. As a Kennedy supporter I 
think they're wrong. We've seen that 
he is intelUgent. We know that he has 
courage. We know he has tenacity 
More importantly, he seems to under- 
stand that if our democracy is to sur- 
vive radical change is mandatory I 
think he'd make a hell of a President. 

It is as simple as this: it must be 
McCarthy, because it can't be Hum- 
phrey. If the central committee gives 
us Humphrey anyway, then we know 
what must be done. We can leave the 
country, we can drift into quietism and 
tend our private gardens, or we can 
disrupt, disrupt, disrupt. Hubert Hum- 
phrey simply cannot be handed the 
Presidency of the United States by a 
few thousand men. If that happens, 
then It IS really all over for all of us.

The Draft 

Dear Sir: 

Over tihe course of the academic year 
I have talked with dozens of youn^ men 
concerning the draft and their attitudes 
toward it. Your publicaition's readers 
may be interested in my impressions. 

First, it is a little depressing to me 
that students who oppose military con- 
scription, and especially conscription for 
service in Vietnam, find it necessary to 
come to the Mental Health Service for 
counsel. Although many students who 
visit our Service are not deeply troubled 
or emotionally ill, there is still an irony 
in the implication that draft problems 
are mental health problems. Why should 
it be that opposition to killing casts one 
in the role of "mental health patient"? 
Since almost all of tihe intellectual, 
moral, and religious leaders of our 
country and of the world are deeply 
opposed to American militarism in Viet- 
rvam (Martin Luther King, Pope Paul. 
U Thant, Senators Fulbright, McCarthy, 
Kennedy, and Morse, the National Coun- 
cil of Churches, etc.. etc.), it would 
seem as if the opposite ought to be true: 
that indifference to or suptport for Amer- 
ica's arrogance of power is the real psy- 
chological disorder. 

As it happens, those students who are 
best informed about world issues and 
most concerned with moral, social, and 
political problems are also those most 
opposed to the war in Vietnam. They 
face, like thousands of their fellow 
Americans of draft age. a genuine 
"crisis of conscience." They are. for 
the most part, dedicated to democratic 
principles and so feel an obligation to 
obey the laws of the land. Yet the burn- 
ing of Vietnamese villages and the de 
fense of a corrupt dictatorship in Saigon 
go against their deepest values. Staying 
in college on a student deferment is no 
real solution for these troubled young 
men: it simply prolongs their avoidance 
of the moral dilemma while others, less 
fortunate than themselves, are drafted 
for the killinig and dying in a hopeless 
cause. It is sickening to them, as it is 
to me. to see callousness to human life 
considered "normal" while sensitivity, 
conscience, and idealism are written off 
as unpatriotic, cowardly, or "sick." 

Second, there is a need for solidarity 
and mutual aid among students who op- 
pose the war and faculty members (con- 
veniently old enough to avoid facxng con- 
scription but nonetheless sympathetic to 
peace-minded students). The draft op- 
erates to divide and conquer, to make 
each man stand alone in his choice of 
militarism, jail, or emigration. Perhaps 
it is always so with moral decisions. But 
students at the University should know 

June 25, 1968 

that there are thousands of young men 
resisting the draft all across the country, 
refusing to violate their consciences, and 
that there are tervs of thousands of older 
men and women supporting them in their 
decisions. Our faculty should join the 
ranks of enlightened academic communi- 
ties by indicating its support of young 
men who take seriously the moral im- 
peratives on which humane civUization 
and the human community are based. 

Third. I am surprised by the lack of 
information most students have concem- 
ing Conscientious Objection. Many be- 
lieve that CO. status is available only 
to members of traditional peace 
churches— Quakers. Jehovah's Witnesses, 
and the like. This is most certainly not 
the case. The U.S. Supreme Court de- 
cision of 1965 broadened the draft law's 
definition of "religious objection" to in- 
clude purely secular, ethical, philosophi- 
cal beliefs; church membership plays 
no i>art in the draft board's decision now 
regarding "conscientious objection to 
participation in war." although of course 
religious training and belief continue to 
be valid grounds as well. In other words, 
CO. draft status is available to young 
men whose opposition to participation in 
military training and war is grounded 
in such sincere convictions as belief in 
the universal brotherhood of man, non- 
violence, the sanctity of human life, and 
the power of love. 

These are not simple matters to dis- 
cuss, nor is it easy to arrive at a co- 
herent moral position. And beyond being 
sure of one's own sincerity, the applicant 
for CO. status must convince his draft 
board that his beliefs are deeply held, 
not merely expedient. Anyone consider- 
ing the CO. position should seek counsel 
from individuals or organizations fa- 
miliar with the draft laws, and should 
certainly not wait until some other draft 
deferment is about to expire before ap- 
plying for CO. There are a number of 
faculty members at the University fully 
qualified to give advice concerning Ckm- 
scientious Objection and other draft 
matters; their names may be obtained 
from me or through the Valley Peace 
Center in Amherst (phone 549-0219).

The Yankee Conference 

Dear Sir: 

Being a graduate of a so-called "pow- 
erhouse" football school, I would like to 
continue watchJng good football while I 
am at UMass. This, at present, seems 
impossible due to the Yankee conference. 
No one enjoys watching a losing team 
or, as the UMass attendance shows, a 

team that continually wins against weak- 
er opposition. 

I would therefore like to see UMass 
break with the Yankee Conference and 
compete with schools its own size. 
True, UMass may get murdered the first 
few years but I think spectators would 
rather watch UMass lose to Syracuse or 
Penn State with a big drawing card, 
such as a Czonka, than win against 
U.R.I. A good team more than pays it's 
own way in gate receipts and UMass 
would eventually get a good team. Per- 
haps Mr. McGuirk had better look out 
his window— he may see a bdg-time uni- 
versity with a small-time football team.

The Kennedy Legacy 

Dear Sir: 

Political party leaders have again dem- 
onstrated their lack of ability to assess, 
with any degree of accuracy, the politi- 
cal pulse of the nation. Democratic party 
bosses have proposed that Senator Ken- 
nedy would be the ideal running mate 
for Hubert Humphrey. They reason that 
Kennedy would provide perfect balance 
for the ticket; Teddy is a rich Eiastemer, 
is a dove, is someone with whom Ne- 
groes, the poor, and students can iden- 
tify, and is Bobby's brother. 

The party leaders, however, neglect 
to take two things into consideration. 
First. Humphrey is not assured, at this 
point, of the nomination. While Mc- 
Carthy's chances are indeed sUm, it is 
impossible, especially in this year, to 
count him out. Ted Kennedy woiUd make 
a poor running mate for McCarthy. 

Second, it is extremely d;pubtful that 
Kennedy would agree to be Humphrey's 
running -mate. Could Kennedy accept the 
still nebulous war stand of the Vice- 
President? Could he work for a man who 
considered his brother little more than 
an opportunist? Could Kennedy, in the 
eyes of most of this country's minority 
groups, betray the legacy of his broth- 
ers? The answer seems quite clear.

Hisfory of RevoiuHon 

Two participants in the student strike 
at Columbia University will speak in 
Hasbrouck 20 at 7:30 p.m., Monday, 
July 1. Mark Rudd and Juan Gonzales 
are representatives of the Ooiumbia 
Strike Committee, made up of mem- 
bers of Students for a Democratic So- 
ciety (SDS), Society for Afro-Ameri- 
can Students (SAS), and other strike 
participants and supporters. Mr. Rudd 
was chairman of SDS when the strike 
began, and has been one of the main 
leaders and spokesmen for the dem- 

During the last week in April over 
700 students occupied five buildings on 
the Columibia Univ. campus in New 
York City. The students had to be re- 
moved by force from the buildings, 
which were seized to gain negotiating 
power against the administration and 
trustees over the following issues: 

— construction of a gymnasium in a 
community park 

— Columbia's membership in the Insti- 
tute for Defense Analysis (IDA), a 
warfare research project funded by 
the U.S. Defense Dept. 

■ — an indoor demor stration ban 

— student disciplinary procedures 

— amnesty for all students occupying 
the buildings. 

The administration and trustees have 
set up a six-man commission to study 
the situation at Columbia, but a full 
report wUl rot be ready until next fall. 
Over seventy students have been sus- 
pended from the University, but the 
Strike Committee is determined to con- 
tinue backing its demands. 

Mr. Rudd and Mr. Gonzales will give 
a history of the student strike and will 
discuss the different issues in greater

UMass Granted $60,000 

UMass has been granted $59,500 from 
the National Science Foundation for 
flame studies of the high energy fuels 
and oxidizers u.sed in today's rocket 

The research will be by Dr. Marcel 
Vanpee of the chemical engineering de- 
partment and win begin with a study 
of the characteristics of the hydrogen- 
fluorine flame under reduced pressure. 

Dr. Vanpee said the project will study 
new oxidizers made from compounds of 
fluorine combined with nitrogen, oxygen 
or chlorine and new fuels containing 
boron, lithium or aluminum. Consider- 
able effort has been made to evaluate 
the performance of some of these new 
propellants by testing them in actual 
propulsion devices, but only a limited 
amount of work has been done on the 
fundamental study of their flame char- 
acteristics, he added. 

"The study of flames has intrigued 
scientists for many generations." Dr. 
Vanpee said, "and the results of their 
endeavor have found wide application 
in industry." In the past, however, most 

lune 25, 1968 

flame studies have been confined to a 
narrow range of fuels and oxidizers used 
in reciprocating internal combustion 
engines and heating appliances, he said.

Mrs. Langland earned her B.A degree 
from UM and received her M.F.A. in 
painting from the University in 1966. 
In 1966 she studied stained glass tech- 
niques and collage constructions in Lon- 
don and did color lithography and draw- 
ing at the Piranesi Workshop and Aca- 
demy of Fine Arts in Rome. Two of 
her lithographs produced at the work- 
shop were juried into the Rhode Island 
Arts Festival currently showing in 

She has participated in numerous 
group shows and has had several one- 
man shows, including in the western 
U.S. and several in New England where 
she has won prizes in oil painting, wa- 
tercolor and printmaking. She is a char- 
ter member of the Eastern Cooperative 
Gallery in Provincetown and exhibited 
some of her new paintings there in Au- 

gust, 1967. Her i>aintings are represent- 
ed in private oolleotions on both the 
East and West Coasts and in Italy 
and Germany. 

Revival of the 'common man' 

An essay written by Dr. Jules Cha- 
metzky, Assoc. Prof, of English at U- 
Mass, is included in the recently-pub- 
lished Proletarian Writers of the Thir- 
ties in the Crosscurrents/Modem Cri- 
tiques series of the Southern Illinois 
Univereity Press. 

Entitled "Edward Dahlberg, Early 
and Late." it is one of 15 original essays 
that revive the works and times of Jo- 
sephine Herbst, John Dos Passes, Dal- 
ton Trumbo, Jack Conroy and others. 
The authors discussed in the 320-pg. 
volume presaged the current era of 
riots, protest and disorder, and had as 
their central theme the "common man" 
and his anguish. 

Dr. Chametzky is co-editor of The 
Massachusetts Review, national quar- 
terly of the arts, literature and public 
affairs and a founder and charter mem- 
ber of the Association of Literary Ma- 
gazines of America. Former editor of 
the Faulkner Studies, he has frequently 
contributed fiction and criticism to A- 
merican magazines and journals.

grant to lecture in American and Eng- 
ligh literature, at the University of Tu- 
bingen in Germany. He spent the aca- 
demic year 1966-67 on sabbatical leave 
from UM in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, com- 
pleting a ibook on the literary work of 
Abraham Cahan.

News Editor Jim Foudy'i compilation of the week's news highlights. 


Lyndon B. Johnson wasn't the only 
person unhappy with the crime control 
law that he signed into effect last week. 
New England Jaw officials agreed with 
the President that it is better than 
nothing for the time but also offered 
criticism particularly in the area of 
gun control. 

Mass. Atty. Gen. Elliot L. Richard- 
son expressed reservations about major 
provisions of the legislation, as did most 
state and local lawmen questioned in 
the Bay State, Maine, New Hampshire 
and Vermont. 

The section of the law that provoked 
most controversy would outlaw inter- 
state mail order sales of pistols and 
revolvers to individuals. (A similar law 
to ban mail order sales of rifles, shot- 
guns and ammunition is pending before 
Congress ) . 

The Boston Globe reported last week 
that firearms manufacturers and gun 
dealers were particularly skeptical a- 
bout how effective the crack-down 
would be as a method of keeping weap- 
ons away from [Kitential criminals and 

A dealer in Maine where p<-)lice 

said mail order gun sales con.stitut^.' "big 
business" — snorted: "It's ridiculous. 
Criminals can always get guns if they 
want them." 

Other provisions questioned by law- 

— Authorization of wiretapping and 
electronic eavesdropping by police 
armed with court orders. 

Making confessions admissable evi- 
dence in Federal criminal court trials, 
if the trial judge decides the confessions 
were given voluntarily. 

The one provision which received una- 
nimous approval would provide up to 
$100 million in Federal aid as the first 
step in a five-year program to improve 
training and equipment of state and lo- 
cal police forces. 

Atty. Gen. Richardson said "a weak 
feature" of the bill is its "inadequate 
provisions on gun control." 

"I am ho|K'ful that in this area, Con- 
gress will take prompt action and will 
enact the stringent regulations which 
are so clearly necessary." he said. 

However, Staff Sgt Fxlward J Hig- 
gin.s head of the State Police firearms 
ri'cords department, said he believed 
the handgun mail order ban would have 
"negligible effect" on the state's 1200 
registere<l gun dealers "they do 
a negligible mail order business." 

He noted that l>ecause Ma.ssachusetts 
is "the seat of the U.S. firearms manu- 
facturing industr>," people wh(» want 
guns "just go to the store and 'buv 

them." They don't have to order them 
by mail from out of state. 

Higgins disclosed that about 11,000 
handguns were sold in Massachusetts 
last year. He also said that 43,000 hand- 
gun jK^rmits were issued in 1967. 

New England firearms manufacturers 
- who pnxluce about 80 percent of the 


While Pres. Johnson was signing 
into law an anti-crime bill contain- 
ing gun control provisions the Asso- 
ciated Press hust week was makini,' a 
tally on their week long suivey ol 
gun deaths in the U. S. 

The total for one week in the U.S.: 
109 homicides, (>4 suicides and 10 
accidents, all by gui s. Things are 
looking up. The 1%6 wtn^kly average 
was 125 shooting homicides a week. 

The AP survey, begun midniglit 
Sunday, June IH, showed gunfire in 
Texas claimed 20 lives, the greati>si 
number of any state, homicides these 
accounted for 14 deaths, almost ddu- 
ble the next highest states Illinois, 
K;, California. 13, Michigan and 
Ohio. 10. 

Illinois had the most suicide shoot- 
ings, 7, and Tennessee and Georgi:i 
the greatest number of accidental 
shooting deaths, 3. 

P^our homicides (x:curred Saturday 
night in Chicago one of which po- 
lice commented was "just one of 
:.hose circum:;tances where a gun is 
too readily available." 

Andrew J. Toman, Cook County 
(Chicago* coroner, reix)rted during 
the weok that more pers<ins died in 
the county from gun wounds durin- 
19()7 than died in auto accidents. He 
saifl <i07 firearnis deaths were re- 
ported compared with 591 traflic 

nation's total output of sporting guns 
and ammunition were divided over the 
mail order i)an. 

The Fitchburg company that made 
the handgun allegedly u.sed to assassi- 
nate Sen. Robert F. Kennedy urged 
Congress to enact a ban on all mail H)r- 
der sales of firearms to individuals, "un 
less si)ecifically permitted by a state." 
The recommendation was part of a 
four-point program suggested to the 
Massachusetts congressional delegation 
l)y Luth<>r M. Otto 3d, president of Iver 
Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works, Inc. 

William Gunn, president of Smith & 
We.s.sen Inc. of Springfield, which sF)ec- 
ializes in police sj)e<Mals (revolvers) and 
other handguns, said his firm did no 

mail onder business. But he commented 
on the ban : 

"If this country enforced the laws we 
have we'd be a lot better off. A law is

Last week, a third large Greater Bos- 
ton department store, l^echmere Sales, 
discontinued the sale of guns and am- 
munition because "lack of an effective 
F'ederal gun control law makes it im- 
possible to keep weapons out of the 
wi'V)ng hands." Jordan Marsh Co. and 
Raymond's made a similar decision the 
week before. 

Bay State lawyers and police offi- 
cials interpreted the confessions provi- 
sion of the Crime Control and Safe 
Street Act as an attempt to overturn 
controversial U.S. Supreme Court rul- 
ings that stipulate police must advise 
an<l per.son of his constitutional 
rights to remain silent after his arrest

The battle for the Boston Common

he considers more constructive lines. 
But they showed little interest in his 
suggestions, which ranged from going 
to work for the city to helping various 
public and private agencies in their 
programs for mentally retarded or 
physically handicapped children. 

At the .same time the hippies .sought 
to exj)lain their philo.sophy and the

by Associated Press 
The Supreme Court ruled Monday 
that discrimination in all housing sales 
and rentals is illegal and suggested that 
Congress has the power to strike at any 
other "relic of slavery." 

The far-reaching. 7-2 decision, an- 
nounced as the court began its long 
summer recess, held that an 1866 post- 
Civil War law establishes an absolute 
ban on racial discrimination in the .sale 
or rental of property, private or public. 
Green Light 
Beyond that. Justice Potter Stewart's 
written opinion could be interpreted' as 
a green light for Congress to act against 
any form of economic discrimination 
that is based on race. The source of 
such authority, the majority suggested, 
is the power given by Congress in the 
13th Amendment banning slavery. 

"At the very least." Stewart wrote, 
"the freedom that Congress is empow- 
ered to secure under the 13th Amend- 
ment includes the freedom to buy what- 
ever a white man can buy. the right to 
live wherever a white man can live." 

Sen. Walter F. Mondale, D-Minn., 
chief sponsor of the open-housing pro- 
visions in the 1968 civil rights act. said 
the decision "closes the last legal ave- 
nue for racial discrimination in hous- 

He said in a statement the court's 
ruling is "particularly significant be- 
cause it reaches the sale of residences 
by individual homeowners whether they 
use the services of real estate brokers 
or not." 

Beyond Expenditure 

The civil rights act exempted individ- 
ual homeowners from the ban on dis- 
crimination if they handle the sale or 
rental of their property themselves. 

The housing decision mushroomed be- 
yond most expectations. Although Pres- 
ident Johnson last April signed a law 
that bans bias in 80 i^er cent of the 
nation's housing deals, the court pushed 

Tune 25, 1968 

ahead with a ruling that one of the dis- 
senters. Justice John M. Harlan, said 
made exemptions in the 1%8 law aca- 

While this year's law barred discrim- 
ination in stages and exempted some 
private, small deals from its reach, 
Stewart said for the court the 1866 law 
"bars all racial discrimination, private 
as well as public, in the sale or rental 
of property." 

Justice Byron R. White joined Harlan 
in a dissent that said the court's find- 
ing that the 108 year old law applies 
to purely private action "is almost sure- 
ly wrong, and at the least is open to 
serious doubt." 


The following are the latest results of 
American Public Opinion released by 
the Institute of Public Opinion, better 
known as the Gallup Poll, as recorded 
by the Boston Globe: 

In the two turbulent weeks between 
the California primary and last Tues- 
day's New York primary, Sen. Eugene 
McCarthy has made gains at the ex- 
pense of both Richard Nixon and Gov. 
Nelson Rockefeller. 

Rockefeller, while losing ground to 
McCarthy, has improved his position a- 
gainst V-Pres. Hubert Humphrey and 
now runs both Democrats a close race. 
Nixon, on the other hand, currently 
trails lx>th Democrats by shall margins. 

Two characteristics of the current 
period should be borne in mind when 
interpreting the latest figures: (1) rare- 
ly have political views shown such vo- 
latility as during the last two or three 
months; and (2) seldom ha,ve so many 
candidates been involved in such close

WASHINGTON (CPS) — The Senate 
has voted to deny National Aeronautics 
and Space Administration grants to any 
college or university where recruiters for 
the armed services are barred from the 

The ban was attached as an amend- 
ment to a bill authorizing $4 billion for 
NASA during the 1969 Fiscal year. The 
amendment passed the Senate without 

Most observers think the amendment 
will face little opposition in the House. 
In early May, the House overwhelmingly 
approved amendments designed to deny 
federal financial assistance to students 
who participate in campus disturbances 
or riots. 

As approved by the Senate, the ban 
will apply only to NASA grants awarded 
in the future. An exception would per- 
mit renewal or continuation of a grant 
to an institution if NASA officials decide 
the grant would make "a significant 
contribution" to the nation's space activ- 

Sen. Carl T. Curtis (R-Neb.) intro- 
duced the amendment. He said it applies 
only in cases where the college admin- 
istration bars recruiters from the camp- 
us, and does not apply to colleges where 
students resLst military recruiters. 

Several college administrations barred 
military recruiters from their campuses 
last fall after Selective Service Director 
Lewis B. Hershey recommended to local 
draft boards that students who parti- 
cipate in disruptive demonstrations be 
drafted first. However, the administra- 
tions lifted their ban on recruiters after 
Selective Service officials assured them 
that the draft would not be used as pun- 

In discussing the amendment, Curtis 
said, "It boils down to a very simple 
proposition: Are we going to tax the men 
fighting for our country, and their rela- 
tives and friends, to pay their portion 
of a grant to a university that will not 
even let the recruiters of the U. S. Gov- 
ernment come on the campus? I can con- 
ceive of but one answer to that: We 
should not." 

Curtis said he has been informed by 
the Department of Defense that army 
and air force recruiters are not barred 
from any campuses at the present time. 
However, he said navy recruiters are 
barred from six and marine recruiters

The Challenge of Caliles 

A good chunk of the future of the elec 
Ironic media will rest with the decisions 
made about the legitimacy of its newest 
child, cable TV. 

Community antenna television (CATV) 
or cable vision is running its wires to 
23 million Americans and bringing with 
it a whole new world of entertainment 
and education. 

Briefly, cable vision companies oper- 
ate by setting up high powered antennas 
and receivers in a particular area. TV 
.signals are then picked up from the air 
and relayed via cables into home sets. 
The facility allows for much greater and 
much clearer reception. One of its big- 
gest advantages has been the boosting 
of educatiofkal network signals to pro- 
vide coverage to a greater area. 

The Problem 

The cable vision problem which has 
now eittered the courts revolves around 
the question at the right of CATV to pick 


up .signals of commercial sitations and 
cable them into the home of their sub 

The Supreme Court recently upheld 
the authority of the Federal Communica- 
tions Commission to regulate community 
antenna television systems known as 

In a 7 decision, the court held that 
Congress had given the commission 
"broad responsibilities" for the orderly 
development of local television broad- 
casting and that the commission had 
been rea.sonable in taking the position 
that "successful performance of these 


What's ahead? Direct satellite-to- 
home hook-ups and low cost inter- 
national broadcasting; closed circuit 
systems for shopping, banking and 
visiting friends, all in your own liv- 
ing iXTom: full-time TV schools and 
colleges without campus facilities;

we can select old pro^jrams we want 
to see; facsimile devices that print

and an endless chain linking the in- 
dividual to his business, hobbies, ed- 
ucation and centers of government. 

duties demands promps aid efficient 
regulation " of the cable transmission 

The immediate effect of the decision 
is to uphold the legality of the commis- 
sion's position that it has the right to 
challenge plans of CATV operators to 
bring television signals into a given city 
from a city some distance away. 

For example. commis.sion rules requir- 
ing CATV operators to carry the pro 
grams of stations in the locality they 
are serving are also currently under 
challenge in the courts. 

City governments— and state govern 
ments where they chose to exercise the 
authority— would still have jurisdiction 
over such decisions and the right to re 
quire payment from CATV operators for 
the use of public streets for their under- 
ground or overground wires. 

What's Ahead 

From their catbird seats on the Fed 
eral Communication Commission, mem 
bers Nicholas Johnson and Lee Loevin- 
ger cite CATV as the vital part of to- 
morrow's technology. Broadcasters are 
less than unanimous in their enthusiasm. 
But. despite the number who want to 
keep control in the hands of existing 

stations or turn it all over to strict gov 
ernment regimen. CATV is already ad- 
vanced well beyond the imagination 

A few years ago. cable lines were 
limited to the rural landscape where TV 
reception was poor or impossible. Today, 
some 23 million Americans are linked 
to cable systems, with experts predicting 
the number will swell to 110 million in 
ten years. Our biggest cities are now 
wiring up. not only for better reception 
but for wider choice of programs. 

The Fight 

In an indastry fight of enormous public 
implications, the campaign for recogni 
tion of CATV and its free growth is being 
led by Roger W. Clipp. chief executive 
of a prestige group called Triangle 

A relative David among well-entrench- 
ed Goliaths, Clipp is pushing fellow 
broadcasters for a revision of their of 
ficial position against the spread of 
CATV. Openly supported by another 
prominent owner. Fetzer Broadcasting 
Company, and silently endorsed by oth- 
ers, he moves from conference to board 
meeting to speech platform to convention 
hall with predictions that no longer 
seem startling. 

He sees transmission of TV programs 
duction centers replacing many local by 
microwave via CATV, with key pro 
transmitters, and a rise from the present 
5,900 cable systems to 23.700 in the next 
decade. He likens conservative broad 
casters to "the cattleman opposing the 

Public Good 

With an average of 4,000 homes ser- 
viced by each cable system, the sheer 
weight of numbers can be the docidinti; 
factor that shifts the issue from an 
industry argument to an accomplished 
fact. The growing National Cable Tele 
vision As.sociation now has dozens of 
broadcasters in its ranks, including 
many who are .still denouncing CATV 
from the other side of their pocketbooks. 

As the public demand increases, so 
will their profits, which may quiet some 
voices. What put Roger Clipp in the fore- 
front of the cable movement, however, 
is not money but a pa.ssion for progress. 

Winner of the 1967 Liberty Bell Award 
for "creative vision," Clipp wants to go 
where the scientists take us. Like the 
viewers who have suffered through the 
growing pains of this electronic child, 
he is anxious to see what the next 21 
years of television can provide in terms 
of maturity. 

The Statesman 

In Massachusetts the battle over cable 
vision is well underway. 

Massachusetts lawmakers are headed 
for a decision on how to provide uni- 
form licensing and regulation of com- 
munity antenna television (CATV) and 
• » whether controls should be established 

^^ ^ now by the state. 

,.. Before the Legislative Committee on 

I Government Regulations is a measure 

drafted by the Massachusetts Consum- 
I eis' Council, for city and town licensing 

"^ the systems. However, the State Pub- 
lic Utilities Commission would be given 
the power to review, after three years' 
operation, rates set by the cities and 
towns and to set standards. 
Stat© Control 
The Consumers' Council is leading the 
drive for state legislation in the CATV, 
field. It is strorgly backed by Atty. Gen.^ 

e In The Bay State 

James Marlowe, systems manager 
said that a letter is being maUed to 
each of several thousand Franklin 
County area subscribers asking them 
to write letters to legislators opposing 
the proposed laws. 

Edward R. Willett. chairman, and 
Dermont P. Shae, executive secretary 
both of the Consumers Council, said 
the nature of "exclusive franchise" li- 
censing puts CATV into a monopoly 
position demanding regulation for the 
protection of the consumer. 

Pioneer's letter, signed by Pres. Al- 
bert J. Ricci, states: "Cable television 
IS not a public utility." It also cites the 
possibilities of increased rates and re- 
duction of local programming under 
DPU regulations. 

"We at Pioneer Valley Cablevision are

Elliot L. Richardson, a number of leg- 
islators, and others. The Council wants 
the Dept. of Public Utilities to control 

Fiffhting against the pending legisla- 
tion are several municipal officials and 
representatives, as well as spokesmen 
for the systems, which receive pro- 
grams on a central antenna and "pipe" 
them into the subscribers homes via 
telephone cables. 

The outcome is up in the air at the 
mement. This week the government- 
regulations committee held a hearing 
at which both sides presented their 
views. The committee report will now 
be awaited. 

Amherst T V 

In the Amherst area Pioneer Valley 
Cablevision, Inc., is taking a strong 
IxKition in opposition to proposed state 
regulation of community antenna tele- 
vision service. 

June 25. 1968 

opposed to this bill for several reasons. 
"1. Cable television is not a public 
utility. A universally accepted charac- 
teristic of a public utility is that it be 
a necessity. Television in any form is 
certainly not a necessity of life, and 
cable television is even less necessary, 
since a subscribes may disconnect his 
cable at any time. Many people are sat- 
isfied with reception available using 
their own antenna. 

"2. Regulation by the DPU would 
mean that the DPU would set our rates. 
If those rates were set to guarantee us 
the usual profit that is guaranteed to 
public utilities, it could actually mean 
an increase in the rates we now charge 
our subscribers. 

"And we at Pioneer Valley Cable- 
vision don't want to be forced to raise 
our rates; we want to continue to bring 
you cable television at the most rea- 

sonable rates possible. It is interesting 
to note, that wages have increased an 
average of 20'/< since 1960. During the 
same period of time the subscription fee 
for cable TV has increased only an ave- 
rage of 6Vr nationally. 

"3. If the DPU does regiUate us, we 
might be forced to curtail our local 
programming and other present or pro- 
posed service. We don't want to do that 
either We want to provide maximum 
possible local television service to the 
Western Mas.s<ichusetts area. 

"4. If DPU regulations were suffi- 
ciently stringent, they might force us 
out of CATV altogether" 


By upholding the right of the Fed- 
eral Communications Commission to 
regulate community antenna televi- 
sion systems (CATV). the Supreme 
Court has given the F.C.C. a green 
light to safeguard the public's inter- 
est in this new technology. 

In effect, the unanimous Court has 
ruled that the cables are more than 
simply a means to improve TV re- 
ception in rural areas blocked by 
mountains or in city neighborhoods 
with intervening skyscrapers. CATV 
is an exciting extension of the whole 
broadcasting sp*trum. The F.C.C. 
should now proceed with a major 
.«tudy of CATV ownership, anti^mon- 
opoly aspects, copyright protection of 
creative material that is transmit- 
ted, rates and other jurisdictional 

The only way CATV can be li- 
censed properly is for the F.C.C. to 
move with facts and speed— some- 
thing the commissioners have not 
done boldly in regulating radio and 
television . . .

Athletics on Campus: 
One President's Opinion 

® 1968 Massachusetts Daily Collegian 

The French government is still intact, 
the Paris peace talks continue and 
another meeting of the Yankee Confer- 
ence presidents has passed without ac- 
tion on the controversieil Twenty For<- 

The Formula, you'll remember, is the 
rule that means that UMass football 
teams may play against Boston College 
and Connecticut against Yale with 
strength comparable to what Vermont 
throws at A.I.C. and New Hampshire at 
Springfield. UMass, it is intended, will 
snatch a few losses from the jaws of vic- 
tory as it plays schools about one-third 
its size. 

Simply, the Formula prevents each 
member school from bestowing the 
equivalent of twenty full athletic schol- 
arships a year in the principal sports. 
Clearly, it is more a product of Confer- 
ence conservatism than of Yankee in- 
genuity. Alabama's Bear Bryant mean- 
while does his thing with about thirty 
"full boats" a season. 

The UMass delegate to the Confer- 
ence policy talks. President John W. 
Lederle, would like the limit raised to 
twenty-five and has thus warmed the 
hearts of his constituents in the athle- 
tic department. Athletic director Warren 
P. McGuirk (spelled McKuirk in last 
year's Conference handlxx>k ) says if the 
other five presidents shared Dr. Le- 
derle's view on athletics, "we wouldn't 
have these problems." Lederle, Jim Mc- 
Kay would say, knows the thrill of vic- 
tory, the agoncy of defeat, et cetera. 

Staunch Defender 

Students have called him President 
Leaderless, ostensibly because UMass 
doesn't offer a course on the New Left, 
and the Phantom, perhaps because he 
doesn't appear at dorm picnics. When 
he arrived in 1960 and saw UMass beat 
Harvard, 27-12, he was labeled the good 
luck charm of the football team. "The 
next week Connecticut took us, 31-0," 
he remembers. "But they haven't beaten 
us since." 

A former Detroit attorney who once 
argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, 
Dr. Lederle staunchly defends the role 
of athletics in campus life and the role 
of a restrained athletic scholarship 
policy in athletics. One of the functions 
of the university, he says, is to estab- 
lish "habit patterns" in sports as well as 
in education. "It's obvious academics 
come first and athletics second," he an- 
swered. "You can do things dually as 
long as you maintain the primacy of 

Dr. Lederle's concern for the athletic 
department includes root -root-rooting 



By Tom FitzGerald 

for the home team. He attends all the 
away football games too. He says of all 
the times he has seen Greg Landry play, 
he was most impressed by the star 
quarterback for his perseverance during 
the loss to B.C. last fall, when the only 
support Landry had was strictly grass- 

"The thing going for us is a fine phy- 
sical plant," he says in comparing 
UMass athletically to other schools. 
"Our little stadium is a gem." But he is 
apparently training a watchful eye on 
the other sports. "We've got to get our- 
selves a rink in the near future," he 
says. "I think the whole student body 
would benefit from a skating rink, open 
from early in the morning to late at 
night, as on other campuses." He adds 
that the project would probably have to 
bo self-liquidating because of a shortness 
of funds. 

Like "Cazzie's House" 

On the need for a new basketball field 
house, he understates, "The Cage is not 
a very attractive facility." A product of 
the University of Michigan, where he re- 
ceived his B.R., A.M., LL.B., and Ph.D., 
he alludes to the new fieldhouse at 
UMich, which he says is considered "the 
House that Cazzie (Russell) Built." He 
envisions a fieldhouse, holding 12,000 to 
15,000 seats, that can be used for con- 
certs and, in case of rain, for com- 
mencements and convocations. Athletic 
director McGuirk, incidentally, favors a 
building divided into a hockey arena and 
a basketball hall. 

Lederle agrees with McGuirk on the 
value of wide-ranging athletic opportu- 
nities for collegiates. "I don't know of a 
broader spectrum of intercollegiate or 
intramural sports." he says. With the 
addition of junior varsity to freshmen 
teams, he points out, "There's an oppor- 
tunity for the mediocre athlete to par- 
ticipate." He feels, however, that 
breadth must encompass strength. 
"We've got a good young wrestling 
coach (Homer Barr)," he says with a 
smile. "We'll be up there with Oklahoma 
some day." And he feels the spectrum 
may have its limits. On the possibility of 
whole-hearted support for the Crew 
Club, he cautions, "That's about a 
$60,000 proposition. But you talk about 
dedication. Those guys really put out." 

Reverting to more touchy matters, he 

expresses distaste for high-pressure re- 
cruiting of high school athletes (let's 
call it Bearbryantism). He recalls a 
Carnegy Foundation report back in the 
'30s revealing rampant professionalism 
in colleges across the country. "I don't 
see any danger of that in New Eng- 
land. I just dont' see it as a major prob- 

Occasional Drubbing 

As to UMass' position in this conser- 
vative recruiting picture, he says, "I'd 

Lederle (riirht) with Coach Vic Kusim after '64 
Tangerine Bowl loss in Orlando, Kla. 

like to have us become the first choice ^T 
athletically in New England. " While the 
Redfans cheer in unison to that state- 
ment, he adds, "But I don't think we 
ever will. I think we should play good 
ball, taking our drubbings once in a 
while, but at least so that we are rep- 
resentative of the best in the Common- 

The playei-s arc not the only ones to 
benefit from intercollegiate athletics, he 
says. A home football game, for in- 

Th« Statesman 

stance, represents -the one time when 
the whole academic community gathers 
in one place. There is vitrue in the sym- 
bolic act." The fans can't have every- 
thing: "We have no intention of playing 
big-time like Penn State and Syracuse" 
he says. ' 

Dr. Lederle points out that athletic 
endeavors have restraining factors other 
than simple ethics and regulations of 
the NCAA. ECAC and the Yankee Con- 
ference. "When we went to the Tan- 
gerine Bowl in '64, some faculty mem- 
bers were upset. What they didn't know 
^ was that we were invited to the Bowl 
the year before and we refused We 
were later invited and again refused." 

I might add parenthetically that suspi- 
cions were reportedly growing at UMass 
that a sizable share of the Tangerine 
gate was not being contributed as was 
publicized, to charity. More important 
for UMass the Tangerine Bowl is only 
as "important" as a game can be that 
matches two small college powers on a 
high school field. 

No Predictions 

Regarding the Yankee Conference^ 
Lederle appreciates its coziness and the 
simplicity of .scheduling. But he says 
(hawks, take heart), "There are some 
other pulLs going on. We are a dynami- 
cally growing institution. You've also 
Kot to think of natural rivalries (a 
statement that excludes Maine New 
Hampshire and Vermont)." He 'never- 
theless sympathizes with the other Con- 
ference schools, especially Vermont 
which IS weighing de-emphasis of foot- 
ball because of economic troubles 
"Maybe that's not a bad idea for them " 
he says. 

While he opposes the Twenty For- 
mula, he notes that some of the "aberra- 
tions" of Conference policy have been 
deleted, including a rule that if an 
athlete leaves school before completing 
his athletic eligibility, his scholarship 
cannot be transferred to another 
athlete. As for predicting further 
changes in Q>nfcrence rules, however 
he laughed, "I don't want to be like our 
friend at Maine." He was referring to 
Maine football coach Walt Abbott, who 
last fall said his team could go unbeaten 
The Black Bears didn't win a game. 

In defense of the athletic scholarship 
he says, "I don't think it is a contami- 
nating thing." Arguing against abandon- 
ment of UMass' relatively limited ap- 
proach, he says. "Athletes should not be 
discriminated against." Financial needs 
constitute the prime factor in the 
ijig grants, he says. "I came from UMich 
and I personally knew many lettermen 
and All-Americans. Many became lead- 
•Ts but for the fact they got their foot

gram. He said that when a writer in the 
Atlantic Monthly many years ago called 
for an end to the term "amateur" in 
collegiate athletics, a well-known coach 
replied. "Not everyone can write for the 
Atlantic Monthly."

Looking Askance 

At the Week 

In Sports 


(For the vacationinr Tom FitzGerald) 

As baseball approached the all-star 
break, Boston's "Impjossible Dreamers" 
played only .500 ball last week, drop- 
ping them into fifth place. Detroit and 
St. Louis held healthy leads in their 
respective leagues. In addition to an 
ailing knee, add a sore e\bow to Jim 

If the rain-deluged Sox think they 
have problems, how about their Pitts- 
field farm team, which must have had 
a first in baseball history when a game 
last week had to be called because the 
sun sets in the west — right in the eyes 

of the hitter, caitcher and umpire.

The U.S. Open was captured by Lee 
Trevino, who netted $30,000 with a 275 
score, tieing the record set by Jack 
Nicklaus last year. Trevino, a former 
$30-a-week assistant pro, was almost 
broke a year ago.

Former Cleveland Browns fullback 
Jimmy Brown is a man of many talents. 
In addition to his violent exploits on 
the gridiron and, more recently, the 
movie set, he makes an occasional court 
appearance in Los Angeles. He was re- 
cently arrested in connection with the 
beating of a model who reportedly was 
seeking help in her aspirations to a 
movie career. The charges were drop- 
ped when she refused to sign the com-

Arthur Ashe copped the West of Eng- 
land tournament by defeating Clark 
Greabner. Cliff Richey, ala Dennis Ral- 
ston, was disqualified for throwing a 
temper tantrum. Longwood officials de- 
cided not to play in the rain and post- 
poned the U.S. Open which may not be 
played now until September due to prior 
commitments of some of the players

Former heavy weight boxing cham- 
pion Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali, if 
you prefer) was denied a new hearing 
by the fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Ap- 
peals in New Orleans on his charge of 
refusal to be inducted into the Army. 
PerhapsGaseous could lend his services 
to the Students for a Democratic So-

Discension brewed the Patriots last 
week. Don Trull has been given the 
starting nod in the quarterback slot 
over the aged Babe Parilli. Former Pats' 
captain Tom Addison was mi fifed by his 
release from the club after eight years 
of service. Mike Holovak waited until 
Addison told him he had not received 
his contract in the mail to inform him 
that he was not being invited back. Ad- 
dison criticized Holovak for a "lack of 

Harvard turned down Mayor Kevin 
White's request that the Patriots be al- 
lowed to use Harvard Stadium, and the 
stadium issue is becoming even more 
touchy. The future of the Patriots in 
Boston seems doubtful, and there are 
those who say it is an easy and graceful 
way to get rid of the Pats.

Tom Yawkey is talking about incor- 
porating the Sox should there be a new 
stadium. Red Sox stock could do won- 
ders for the Dow Jones average. But it 
is doubtful that Yawkey would hang 
the Sox on the Big Board.

Former UM quarterback Greg Lan- 
dry could find himself starting in a flop 
Friday night. Not because of the tal- 
ert playing in the East-West AU-A- 
merica game, but because Atlanta is 
not a "gate city." Last year's attend- 
ance was down 30,205 over the previous 
year. Opposing Landry will be Gary 
Beban, the quarterback for the West. 
The Washington Redskins acquired 
Beban from the Los Angeles Rams in 
exchange for their No. 1 draft choice. 
The former UCLA All-America signed 
for a reported $200,000 no-cut contract. 



Unlimifed Machine Access from Scattered Site 

At the University of Massachusetts, 
faculty and students used to come to the 
computer; now the computer comes to 
them through a new system of Campus- 
wide Teletype access points. 

Ertrect access for on-line use of the 
UMass Research Computing Center's 
CE>C 3600 machine is now available at 
24 Teletype locations— in science labor- 
atories, in the computer science class- 
room, at the School of Business Admin- 
istration, the School of Education and 
other points. 

Plans call for increasing the number 
of remote sites to 64 in the near future. 
As many as 100 or more sites can be 
accommodated with present equipment, 
according to Dr. Oonrad Wogrin, com- 
puter center director. 

The key advantage of the new sys- 
tem is that it extends to any computer 
user on campus the opportunity to 
work interactively with the CDC 3600— 
to commui.icate directly with the ma- 
chine via keyboard and to interact with 
it as it works, Dr. Wogrin said. 

"The intended effect is to make each 
person think he is in sole command of 
a moderately powerful computer," as- 
sociate computer center director Robert 
Hambleton said. 

The remote system is the product of 
over a year of planning and development 
by Hambleton, computer center sys- 
tems analyst David Stemple, and r>r. 
Caxton C. Foster, the center's associate 
director for research now on leave at 
the University of Edinburgh in Scot- 
land. The system has been dubbed 
UMASS — Unlimited Machine Access 
from Scattered Sites. 

Users of UMASS can describe their 
problem in any one of four computer 
languages: FX)RTRAN or BASIC, com- 
mon computer languages; OOGO, a 
civil engineering language; or SMALL, 
a language corresponding to the internal 
machine language used by computers. 
Programs can be fed in by typing di- 
rectly on the Teletype keyboard or by 
feeding previously prepared paper tape 
into a tape reader attached to the Tele- 
type machine. 

Access to the system is gained by 
typing the user's code name on the 
Teletype. After the machine acknowl- 
edges him. the user feeds in his program 
and instructs the computer to run it. 
If the program has errors, the machine 
immediately types out diagnostic com- 
ments on them. If the program is 
"clean" the machine runs it and returns 
the results. 

Each Teletype user is hooked into the 
main computer frame through a linkage 
that runs from the teletype console to 
a PDP 8 computer which is connected 


to the 3600. A magnetic drum unit with 
a storage capacity of 1 million words 
is used to hold lines read from the Tele- 

The capacity of the CDC 3600 to run 
several hundred thousand operations a 
second keeps input and output signals 
fr(Mn imany Teletype locations moving 
without interruption. Teletype computer 
users wait at the most a fraction of a 
second for a computer response, accord- 
ing to Dr. Wogrin. The UMass com- 
puter center team figures it can run up 
to 100 remote access points on its pres- 
ent system without increasing the re- 
sponse delay time to an uncomfortable 

The new system is currently used only 
during certain hours of the day, the 
rest of the CDC 3600's time being al- 
located to batch runs, a term that re- 
fers to running programs with batches 
of punched data cards. Future plans 
call for simultaneous scheduling of 
Teletype and batch use. 

Before the Teletype system, Univer- 
sity computer users had access to the 
machine mainly through data card 
input, a method that involved putting a 
program on cards and often waiting 
through several trial runs while the 
errors or bugs were discovered and elim- 
inated from the program. 

With Teletype access, this process is 
not only speeded up but becomes an 
actual dialogue between operator and 
computer. "With an interactive system 
y-ou put yourself in the processing en- 
vironment." Hambleton said. "It ex- 
pands th> horizon of what you can do 
with a computer." 

Ten of the Teletype keyboards are 
used in one classroom for instruction in 
a basic computer science course. Stu- 
dents learn computer programming by 
writing a sample program, going to the 
machines ranged along one wall of the 
classroom and trying the program and 
getting an answer back immediately on 
what's right and what's wrong. "A 
process that took three days under the 
data card system now can be doije in a 
half hour," Hambleton noted. 

Present locations of the UMass com- 
puter access machines include those in 
the chemistry, botany, physics buildings, 
two in the School of Business Adminis- 
tration and one each in two other class- 
room buildings, plus two for the teach- 
ing of computer science in the 
Orchard Hill Residential College. 

Future locations will include many 
more on the Amherst campus, one or 
more on the UMass Boston campus and 
possibly in state colleges, community 
colleges and state^supported junior col 
leges, according to the computer center

The StoteHDoa 

On the Off-Season 

(Continued from page 11) 

success depends upon opportunity as 
well as educational achievement, why 
don't schools employ the same principle 
in other areas and subsidize talent in, 
for example, art or music? The answer 
of course lies in the money gained from 
sporting events, the school-spirit factor 
of watching them as a "team" of rooters 
and the ubiquitous love of sports. These 
are undeniable reasons, but, and here is 
where I disagree with Dr. Lederle, why 
.should the administration itself respond 
to them with a financial double-stand- 
ard for students and student-athletes? 

Talented athletes are not the only 
ones who need a door to put their foot 
in nor have they cornered the market 
on poverty. While the athletic scholar- 
ship is not "contaminating" at UMass, 
there are cases, documented and undo- 
cumented, of such a state elsewhere. 
The University of Illinois "slush fund" 
affair a few years ago, which resulted 
m walking papers for three coaches, 
was unfortunate in that every major 
school is known to dispense substantial 
laundry money. Illinois apparently just 
had the most investigative administra- 
tion. Niagara's basketball sensation. 
Calvin Murphy, is reported to earn 
n»ore than just his college expenses 
merely by twirling a baton during Buf- 
falo Bills games. 

What all this means ui UMass' future 
is not clear. As long as the Twenty For- 
mula continues (who knows how long?), 
tension will grow at UMass over mem- 
bership in the Yankee Conference. Per- 
haps UMass can now make an honorable 
withdrawal and at the same time 
escalate its competitive policies. On the 
other hand, perhaps it is time for 
UMass to reorder its priorities. Perhaps 
it is time for the admissions and schol- 
arship boards to stop accepting recom- 
mendations from coaches. The "small- 
time" Yankee Conference, which has 
presented difficulties for UMass, may 
also present an ideal situation to cease 
competition in scholarship wars. 

Too Drastic 

As President Lederie says, athletes 
who spend long hours on the practice 
field are entitled to special benefits. 
Certainly, if the university halted its 
athletic scholarships, the Varsity "M " 
Club and the Alumni Association would 
partially fill the financial void even 
though they of course lack the wealth 
of Ivy League groups. 

Sadly, some coaches would undoubted- 
ly pack their bags in disgust and extra- 
Conference schedules would have to be 
revamped. A vitally concerned president 
and splendid athletic facilities could not 
stem the muscle drain. 

The idea, then, is too drastic for 
UMass or any school with a similar 
sports program. So the only other path. 
It appears, as UMass ponders its posi- 
tion in the Conference, is out and up.

Summer Arts and Crafts 

Summer arts and crafts workshop 
courses in a country setting are be- 
ing offered at the Leverett, Mass., 
center of Leverett Craftsmen and 
Artists, Inc. (LCA). 

LCA's lOO-yr.-old remodeled box- 
shop next to the Leverett town hall 
will be the scene of aftenioon and 
evening classes through August 30. 
Subjects will include life drawing, 
watercolor painting, beginning and 
advanced ceramics, raku pottery, pri- 
mitive weaving, sandalmaking and 
leather design. 

There will be two 4-week sessions 
of a creative arts program for chil- 
dren from 8-13, held mornings three 
days a week, one July 8-Aug. 2 and 
the second August 5-30. 

LCA is a non-profit regional group 
that seeks to promote excellence in 
the hand crafts and aids both young 
and established craftsmen and ar- 
tists. The LCA center provides work- 
ing space for craftsmen and their 
apprentices and is also the scents of 
biannual shows for craftsmen and 
artists from the weslem Mass. area. 
The summer workshops run from 
1 to 6 weeks, generally afternoons 
and evenings. Courses in Beginning 
and Advanced Ceramics and Raku 
respond to the growing interest in 
pottery as a satisfying creative out- 
let. Producing potters Muriel Walker. 

of Montague, and Jack Masson, of 
Conway, teach, respectively, one - 
week raku and two-week advanced 
ceramics courses, while Don Mark- 
ham, from Amarillo, Tex., teaches 
both a three-week and a sbc-week 
course in beginning ceramics. 

Four Life Drawing workshop offer 
an opportunity to both the art stu- 
dent and the novice for live figure 
drawing. Two of these workshops 
last four weeks and provide instruc- 
tion, Under Mr. Markham, while the 
other two, coordinated with the two 
six-week summer sessions at UMass 
offer practice opportunity for the 
art student. 

Well-known Amherst artist Steve 
Hamilton is teaching a three-week 
afternoon Watercolor Painting 
course. Master weaver Helen Klekot, 
of Northampton, offers a two-week 
evening workshop in Creative Weav- 
ing on the back strap primitive loom. 
Leatherworker David Bourbeau, al- 
so of Northampton, will lead two 2- 
week evening workshops, one in San- 
lalmaking and another in Contem- 
porary I>esign in Leather, 

Full details on courses, schedules, 
tuition and teachers is listed in the 
LCA summer bulletin, available free 
from Leverett Craftsmen and Ar- 
tists, Leverett, Mass. Advance regis- 
tration is required for all courses.

involving the sale of Avitar, an under-

Twenty-six people were on trial two

found guilty then were those actually on 
the staff of the newspaper, who were 
presumed to know what was in the news

The Executive Council of the 1968 
Summer School convened for the first 
time Monday night in Dining Commoim 
#7. Since many of the councilors were 
absent the meetirtg was mostly an or- 
ganizational one. One piece of major 
legislation was passed. 

Council Advisor Paul Silverman, 
chairing the meeting, announced that 
the Council would have to send any 
summer open house policy to Dean Field 
and the Board of Trustees for approval. 
The Board of Trustees meeting being 
this coming Friday, immediate action 
was necessary. 

Through general debate a bill was 
formulated and passed unanimously. It 
reads : 

"Moved: That the Summer School 
Executive Council recommend to Dean 
Field and the Board of Trustees that 
the Residence Halls be permitted to 
have up to 2 open houses per week dur- 
ing the summer. Residence Halls may 
be open on Monday through Thursday 
from 6 p.m. to dorm closing, Friday, 
Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 
dorm closing. 

"Furthermore, the House Govern- 
ments will establish and enforce rules 
concerning open houses." 

Advisor Silverman commented that 
with house governments already elected 
and functioning within the Residence 
Halls there would be no real problem 
organizing the students to decide such 
matters as sign-in procedures and the 
frequency and duration of open houses 
in their respective dorms. 

A Social Committee' was formed to 
start planning activities for Summer 
School Students. Tentative plans call 
for dances throughout the summer, with 
the possibility of a concert at the end 
of the second term. 

Election of officers will be held at 
the next regular Monday night meeting, 
July 1 at 6:30 in Dining Commons #7.

and they skip over to join the crowd. 

Every weekend when the weather's 
warm, the hippies take over the part 
of the Boston Common that runs along 
Charles and turn it into something 
like a three ring circus. Lots of bright-

'Hey, Ice cream" and loud radios 
add to the carnival atmosphere.

entertainment on an otherwise dull

other. John says. "You shouldn't live

his feet replies, "F — , f f - - - " 

The crowd breaks up. And her boy- 
friend with shoulder length hair starts 
blowing a horn which drowns John 
out. John just smiles. 

"Jesus taught us to love our ene-

child in his lap screams," What about

with anger at this balding old man

of all this, a cute little girl, fifteen

freckled nose gets behind John, lights 
a firecracker with her cigarette and 
drops it at John's feet. It goes off 
and John nearly falls over one of his 
listeners. John looks bewildered now; 
he. isn't smiling anymore. But these 
beautiful people, the love generation, 
think It IS a panic and they're all 
doubled up with laughter. Now the 
boy with the horn starts dancing 
around John and blowing it in his

appears into the crowd. 

Someone starts playing a guitar and 
singing. "Puff, the tragic faggot lived 
by the Square, and frolicked in the

And the couple that had come 
across the street oil this sunny after- 
noon looked at each other and the 
girl said. "Let's get out of here. This 
isn t a love-in. this is sick."

— Rebellion News (A radical Negro newspaper) 

In this most confusing of all election 
years, the debate over gun control 
legislation has helped add fuel to the 
political fires. There is little doubt in 
anyone's mind that it will be a major 
issue during this fall's campaigning. 

The furor has produced some interest- 
ing results, though, one of them being 
a sudden decision on the part of tele- 
vision executives to avoid showing pro- 
grams which feature violence. Last 
week, for example, one network dropped 
a war film from its schedule and sub- 
stituted one about missionary nuns in 
India. Ridiculously enough, the climax 
of the story pictured one of the nuns 
falling off a cliff. In reality the philoso- 
phy seems to be "It's alright as long 
as there aren't any guns involved." 

Another interesting sidelight is the 
group now issuing bumper stickers 
which read: "IF GUNS ARE OUT- 
WILL HAVE GUNS". They obviously 
aren't able to discriminate between 
"control" and "disarmament". 

The argument has now boiled down 
to two viewpoints. Gun lobbyists object 
strongly to registration of all firearms, 
but are willing to go along with general 
licensing of 'fun' guns and a ban on 
mail-order sales. This is a far cry, how- 

ever, from the legislation requested by 
those who want strict controls and man- 
datory registration. 

Though it appears that the gun situa- 
tion is too far out of hand to make any 
real progress in the forseeable future 
—there are an estimated 200 million 
guns in the U.S. — at least such legisla- 
tion will be a beginning. Whether it will 
improve the situation or actually have 
a reverse effect remains to be seen.

A Difference of Opinion 

Dear Sir: 

I wish to take strong exception to 
the views of Mr. Hammill and Mr. 
Silverman on the Kennedy legacy 
(June 25). While I agree that the nomi- 
nation of Mr. Humphrey would not be 
a satisfactory alternative to the present 
disastrous policies, I cannot support 
Senator McCarthy. Since Senator Ken- 
nedys death in Los Angeles. I have 
spoken with many others who had been 
active in his campaign. The feeling 
among these people is that there has 
been no significant movement of Ken- 
nedy supporters to either Humphrey or 

charge that we will be party to some 
monstrous act of immorality if we turn 
our backs on their candidate. They can- 
not know that we saw Senator Kennedj 
as the only candidate capable of chang- 
ing American society. We did not give 
our support to Robert Kennedy lightly; 
it was a total commitment. For these 
reasons, most of us cannot support 
either Humphrey or McCarthy. Per- 
sonally, I will hold a lasting bitterness 
and contempt for those professors and 
students who attacked Robert Kennedy 
so irresponsibly. I am not alone; there 
is deep resentment in the black ghettoes 
as well. 

McCarthy. The fact that many Mc- 
Carthy supporters da not understand 
our refusal to support their candidate 
is an indication of their insensitivity. 

The major reasons for our bitterness 
can best be explained by my own ex- 
periences at this University during the 
campaign. The Kennedy group here had 
a table in the Student Union through- 
out May. Our purposes were to involve 
pro-Kennedy students and professors in 
the campaign, and to carry on a rational 
dialogue with McCarthy supporters. 
Since there is no longer any need to 
recite the major policy differences be- 
tween the two candidates, I will not 
do so here. But, day after day, we heard 
the tasteless, vicious, personally offen- 
sive comments of McCarthy supporters. 
We rarely were asked to discuss the 
important issues. Professors and stu- 
dents, so filled with hatred for Robert 
Kennedy that they could not view him 
rationally, repeatedly attacked him as 
an evil and immoral man. In New York 
City, where I worked at the Kennedy 
Headquarters during the week imme- 
diately preceding the assassination, I 
heard the same trash from middle and 
upper-income whites. Needless to say, 
I also found great support for him in 
the black community. But, the cam- 
paign was conducted so viciously that 
many of us were constantly fearful of 
an assassination. 

And now the same people who filled 
the political atmosphere V^th such 
hatred ask us to Join them. Again, they 

The immediate eflforts of many former 
Kennedy supporters will be directed at 
the establishment of a national Kennedy 
Action Corps. This group will consist 
of a political action branch and a 
poverty workers branch. The aim of 
the Corps will be to pursue the issues 
to which Senator Kennedy addressed 
himself during the campaign. We will 
remain faithful to his program in thi.*?

When Will It End? 

Dear Sir: 

I am now in my senior year up here, 
and I am obsessed wondering what the 
campus looks like without bulldozers, 
cranes, and half-finished buildings. I 
can remember seeing pictures of rolling 
green lawns and brick buildings. During 
my three years up here I've watched 
the towers being erected as well as the 
other low rise dorms in Southwest. 

I can remember walking through all 
the mud to get to campus when they 
were building the highway and the tun 
nel. Last night I was just very mad at 
all the construction and the roads that 
were there one day and gone the next. 
When is it going to end?

A Lower Voting Age? 

Not For Awhile 

WASHINGTON (CPS) — Despite Pres- 
ident Johnson's support of a constitution- 
al amendment to lower the voting age 
to 18, it is highly unlikely that young 
Americans will be truly accepted as 
participants in the pwlitical process be- 
fore 1971. at the very earliest. 

The President, in a special message 
to Congress this week, said the time has 
come to .signify to the 12 million persons 
between the ages of 18 and 21 that they 
are "participants, not spectators, in the 
adventure of self-government." Johnson 
thus formally confirmed his support of 
a constitutional amendment designed "to 
grant our youth what we ask of them 
but still deny to them— full and responsi- 
ble pjarticipa'tion in our American dem- 

A proposal to lower the voting age al- 
ready has been sponsored by 44 Sen- 
ators. Most otxservers. nevertheless, 
doubt that Congress will approve the 
constitutional amendment this year since 
present plans call for adjournment the 
first week in August. 

The Senate subcommittee on constitu- 
tional amendments has held hearings on 
the proposal, but a spokesman for the 
subcommittee said an effort to send the 
amendment to the full Judiciary Com- 
mittee failed last week due to the lack 
of a quorum. He said the subcommittee 
will not meet again before the middle of 
July, at the earliest. Even if it approves 
the amendment then, it would be almost 
impossible for the Senate Judiciary 
Committee— which is overloaded with 
conservatives — and the full Congress to 
act on it in the busy two or three weeks 
before the expected adjournment date. 

To be effective, the amendment would 
have to be approved by a two-thirds 
vote in both the House and the Senate, 
and then be ratified by three fourths of 
the states. Since all but three of the 
state legislatures will be in .session in 
early 1969, if Congress does not approve 

Julr 10. 1968 

By Walter Grant 

the amendment this year, many of the 
legislative bodies may not have a chance 
to ratify it until they meet in regular 
session again in 1971. 

Governors of states where the legisla- 
ture meets only biannually could, of 
course, call special legislative sessions 
to ratify the amendment, but this would 
be a great expense to the states, and 
therefore is improbable. 

In addition to these obstacles, the 
amendment may face considerable op- 
position by some of the states, if not by 
Congress. Opponents of extendiiig the 
right to vote to IS-year-oldfe are ex- 
pected to emphasize two major argu- 

—The recent wave of student demon- 
strations ir»dioates that young people be- 
tween the ciges of 18 arid 21 lack matur- 
ity and are not ready for the political 
process. During the Senate hearings on 
the amendment, oi^wnents argued that 
the demonstrations prove young people 
"are prone to take an extreme point of 
view and push their ideas to the exclu- 
sion of all others." 

The states should retain the power to 
set the voting age. 

Behind most of the opposition, of 
course, is the fear of politicians that they 
will be voted out of office if additional 
millions of young people are given the 
right to vote. 

Some observers already have pointed 
out that President Johnson did not sup 
port the amendment until after he de- 
cided to drop out of politics, and he still 
waited so late that it is unlikely Congress 
will have time to act on it this year. 

Presently, only two states— Kentucky 
and Georgia— have lowered the voting 
age to 18. Alaska and Hawaii, when en- 
tering the Union, set the voting age at 
19 and 20, respectively. Proposals to 
lower the voting age have been intro- 

'WfU, 1/ I OVI'I iKWf* tiM CriktuUtf Cop, 
/low ateut tM Btmratim C<v7" 

duced at one time or another in most of 
the states, but have either never reached 
the baUot or have failed. 

Most of the arguments in favor of ex- 
tending the vote to 18-year-olds were 
outlined in the President's special mes- 
sage to Congress. 

"Throughout our history as a young 
nation," Johnson said, "young people 
have been called upon by the age of 18 
to shoulder family responsibilities and 
civic duties identical with their elders. 
At the age of 18, young Americans are 
called upon to bear arms" and "are 
treated as adults before many courts of 
law and are held 'responsible for their 

He also emphasized, "The age of 18, 
far more than the age of 21, has been 
and is the age of maturity in America — 
and never more than now." 

The special message continued. "The 
essential stability of our system is not 
served, the moral integrity of our cause 
is not strengthened, tJhe value we plac6 
on the worth of the individual is not 
honored by denying to more than 10 
million citizens— solely because of their 
age—the right to full participation in de- 
termining our country's course." 

The first proposal for a constitutional 
amendment to lower the voting age was 
advanced in 1942 by the late Sen. Arthur 
Vandenberg (RMidh.) In 1954, President 
Eisenhower urged the adoption of such 
an amendment in his State of the Union 
Message. Then, a Senate majority, but 
not a two-thirds majority, favored the 

Support is growing, however. In the 
90th Congress alone, more than 50 pro- 
posed amendments to lower the voting 
age have been introduced, many with 
broad bipartisan support, according to 
President Johnson. 

Most observers think the voting age 
eventually will be lowered, but probably 
not in the near future. 


500 Hear Gonzales 

"I think a revolution is necessary in 
this country, and I think that what we 
were fighting for at Columbia was the 
beginning of a movement." 

This was the contention of Juan Gon- 
zales of the Columbia Strike Committee 
as he spoke to 500 students in the ball- 
room of the UMass Student Union Mon- 
day. July 1. 

Gonzales was one of more than 700 
striking Columbia students who occupied 
five buildings on the university's campus 
during the last week in April. 

During the hour -long talk, delivered 
in near 100° temperature. Gonzales 
touched on such topics as civil rights, 
equality in education, welfare, housing 
and urban renewal, American foreign 
policy in Latin America and Asia, police 
brutality and the Vietnam war. He also 
hit hard at press coverage of the strike, 
specifically referring to the NY Times. 

"A lot of the papers called us hood- 
lums and rowdies," he said. "Some also 
called us revolutionaries. But to me the 
names aren't synonymous." He added 
that the term "anarchist" was also being 
used incorrectly to refer to the strikers. 

He explained revolutionaries that "have 
a vision of a just society." That "it is 
organized, and tries to meet the needs 
of the majority of people." 

"We can't accept the society as it is 
now," he said, "and we would rather be 
involved in a struggle to change it. It 
may be a violent struggle, but I'm not 
against violence when you're fighting 


For the second summer Belchertown 
will hold an EcumenicaJ Vacation 
Church School for children of all 
faiths from July 15th-26th. Last year 
this school was staffed by Protestant 
lay persons and Roman Catholic friars 
and noviatiates. This year it was ex- 
pected that staff would follow the 
same pattern as last year, but a sud- 
den change has occurred: the Roman 
Catholic friars can not assist in the

mencing on July 15th, at the Congre- 
gational Parish House, Park St., Bel- 
chertown. If you can spare 25 hours 
of your summer to assist in this ecu- 
menical venture with children and 
youth the satisfaction gained will be 
most rewarding. TTiink it over. We

for something you believe in." 

Gonzales decried what he considers 
to be a political trend toward the right 
of America, and said he "wouldn't be 
surprised if Richard Nixon wins in 1968." 

In answer to charges that students 
have nothing to offer, but merely want 
to destroy the society, he said, "We do 
have something to offer; we have social- 
ism to offer. We think that socialism is 
the best system that provides for the 
needs of the people. And that's what 
we're fighting for." 

"Our job as revolutionaries," he con- 
cluded, "is to try to make people realize 
what's happening. To try to raise the 
level of consciousness of the people, and 
to try to organize them." 

Eighty five students have been sus- 
pended thus far, Gonzales among them. 
Gonzales stated he was informed that he 
will never receive his degree, even tho 
he has completed his four years at the

and spokesman for the demonstrators, 
was originally scheduled to appear with 
Gonzales also but was unable to leave 
New York because of legal commitments. 

Johnson Promoted 

Lawrence A. Johnson has been 
promoted to Assistant Dean of the 
School of Business Administration and 
from assistant to associate professor of 
marketing, effective September 1. 

The director of the UMass Committee 
for the Continuing Education of Negro 
Students, Prof. Johnson was instrumen- 
tal in initiating a special program this 
year to admit more Negro students into 
the University. The program began last 
year with the Five College Committee 
on Negro Education made up of 12 
Negro faculty members from UMass 
and Smith and Amherst Colleges. 

Their aim was to develop a tutoring 
program at the high school level to 
raise the academic ability of Negro stu- 
dents to the University's admission 
standards. About 120 Negro students 
are expected to enroll at UMass under 
the program next fall. 

Prof. Johnson received his bachelor's 
and master's degrees in business admini- 
stration from Boston University. He is 
presently working toward a Ph.D. from 
Stanford University. He is the author 
of "The Negro in America ' which was 
published by the Stanford Research 

Before joining the staff at the Uni- 
versity in 1%1, Prof. Johnson taught 
at San Francisco State, North Carolina 
and Arkansas A. & M. Colleges. 

People Against Racism 

Frank Joyce of People Against Racism 
will speak at the Student Union Ballroom 
on Monday. July 15. at 8:00 P.M. 

People Against Racism was founded 
in Detroit for the purpose of fighting 
white racism, cited by the Kerner Re- 
port as the number one cause of rioting 
in U.S. cities. The organization, begun 
by Joyce and a few other whites, is now 
about a year old. 

With offices in Detroit. New York, 
Boston, and several other cities, People 
Against Racism sponsors programs 
which include seminars, workshops, sen- 
sitivity training and action to combat 

Joyce's visit is being sponsored jointly 
by the Amherst Human Relations Coun- 
cil, Martin Luther King Jr. Social Action 
Committee, and the University Summer 
Arts Program. 

Live and in Stereo 

A successful fund - raising Ccunpaign 
has assured the broadcast of 24 Boston 
Symphony Orchestra concerts from 
Tanglewood, live and in stereo, over 
WFCR (88.5 mc). the Five College 
Radio Station at UMass. 

Over 400 listeners contributed be - 
tween $1.00 and $5000 each to pay for 
the cost of telephone lines. A special 
grant also was made by the Amherst 
Savings Bank. 

The broadcasts, which began Friday 
night (July 5 at 9:00 p.m.) with an all- 
Mozart program conducted by Erich 
Leinsdorf, wiU continue over WFCR 
every Friday at 9:00 p.m., Satiu-day at 
8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. 
through August 25. 

A Boston "Pops" extra is scheduled 
for late August. 

WFCR Station Manager Al Hulsen, 
commenting on the fund drive, said, 
"We were amazed and pleased at the 
extent of listener support- -from Con- 
necticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New 
Hampshire, and New York — for the 
Tanglewood broadcasts." Funds received 
in excess of the $1,270.00 needed for 
audio lines will be used to underwrite 
the cost of Cleveland Orchestra con- 
certs in the fall, Hulsen said. 

UMass and NASA 

A new program of research to im- 
prove space vehicle communication sys- 
tems has begun at the University of 
Massachusetts under contract with the

A senior from Somerville in the urban and regional studies program was awarded this year's 
Peter Pan Scholarship given by Peter Pan Bus Lines, Inc., of Springfield. Shown at the pres- 
entation, left to right, is Robert L. Rivers, UMass associate professor of finance and transporta- 
tion; Peter Pan President Peter Picknelly; Paul Papaluca, the scholarship recipient; and Dean 
Wendell R. Smith of the UMass School of Business Administration. The award is made each 
year to an outstanding student who demonstrates an interest in the field of passenger bus 

signal design, including speech signals, 
signal distortion in plasma media, cod- 
ing techniques, pulse frequency modu- 
lated circuitry, pulse code modulated 
systems, control systems and related 
proUems in antennas and propagation. 


UMass has received a $2(X)0 grant from 
the Woodrow WUson National Fellow- 
ship Foundation for financial assistance 
to fellows who have enrolled for first 
year graduate study. 

Checks totaling $1,637,000 were sent 
to 72 university graduate schools in the 
United States and Canada. This will be 
the last year that the foundation will 
make these supplementary grants. 

For the past 10 years, with grants 
from the Ford Foundation totaling $52 
million, the fellowship foundation has 
paid - tuition and fees and a stipend for 
the living expenses of 9,873 Woodrow 
Wilson Fellows for their first year of 
graduate study. The foundation also 
made supplementary grants to the fel- 
lows' graduate schools, 75 per cent of 
each to be used for fellowships to stu- 
dents who had completed their first year 
of graduate study. One-fourth of each 
supplementary grant could be used at 
the discretion of the graduate school.

UMass has received a $53,000 Na- 
tional Science Foundation grant for 
computer language research by Dr. J. 
A. N. Lee, head of the department of 
computer science. 

A computer language is a set of 
symbols used to give a computer 

instructions. The most common general 
language is FORTRAN, or Formula 
Translation. There are a number of 
others used for special scientific, busi- 
ness, engineering and other purposes. 

The UMass project will study the 
techniques of machine translation of 
computer languages and the execution 
by computers of the instructions con- 
tained in those languages. 

The UMass computer science depart- 
ment, which specializes in computer 
language research, has originated a 
technique that will enable a computer 
user to define special purpose computer 
instructions for his own use. 

"This will enable computer users to 
use terminology closer to that of their 
owTi research instead of being required 
to learn the specialized temiinology of 
the computer," according to Dr. Lee. 

A special feature of the computer 
language research will be its adaptation 
for use in the Unlimited Machine 
Access from Scattered Sites (UMASS) 
system (see June 24 Statesman). 
UMASS is a computer time-sharing 
network that permits use of the Uni- 
versity Research Computing Center's 
CDC 3600 computer from a number of 
teletype and telephone remote access 

Aiding Dr. Lee in the computer lan- 
guage research is David Stemple, com- 
puting center systems analyst, and Miss 
Susan L. Gerhart, computer science 

Special Film Program 

Captioned feature motion picture 
films prepared especially for deaf people 
are being shown at the UMass Scbool 

of Education auditorium every Wednes- 
day evening. 

"Flower Drum Song" was shown 
June 26. Other films scheduled include 
"Ipcress File," "Waterbirds," "Cat Bal- 
lou." "Comedy of Terror", "Nature's 
Half Acre," "Father Goose," and "Cap- 
tain Newman, M.D." 

Made avciilable by leading film pro- 
ducers, the movies are being shown as 
part of the U.S. Office of Education 
sponsored summer media institute for 
personnel at schools for the deaf. Deaf 
people caption the uncut films by con- 
densing the dialogue from the original 
script so that it can be read quickly 
while the action is taking place on the 

Those with impaired hearing or 
interested in captioning problems and 
techniques are encouraged to attend the 
screenings. No admission charge or 
donation will be collected. 

Two Profs Off to London 

Two members of the UMass depart- 
ment of plant pathology will present in- 
vited papers at the First International 
Congress of Plant Pathology at the Im- 
perial College of Science and Technolo- 
gy in London from July 14 through July 

Dr. Francis W. Holmes, associate pro- 
fessor of plant pathology, will present a 
paper on "Phytopathological Transla- 
tions." He is presently traveling to Mos- 
cow, Berlin, Prague, Paris, Bucharest 
and Amsterdam with a group of plant 
pathologists. The group will meet with 
their counterparts at research stations in 
the various countries before arriving in 

Dr. Richard A. Rohde, chairman of 
the department of plant pathology, will 
present a paper on "The Nature of Re- 
sistance in Plants to Nematodes" and 
also act as a discussion leader for a 
symposium on hosti>arasite interactions. 
Plant disease specialists from 40 coun- 
tries will attend the congress for two 
weeks of discussions and excursions to 
research centers throughout England.

Politics '68— 

Ho Common Ground 

Candidates for President '68 differed 
sharply last week over what the major 
issues of the campaign are. Sen Mc- 
Carthy said it was the war. H.H. Hum- 
phrey said it was the accomplishment of 
"civil order and civil justice at home." 
Richard Nixon continued to remain silent 
on the war and a number of other signi- 
ficant issues as well. 

Reflecting his professed disenchant- 
ment with the Democratic Party's re- 
sponsiveness to majority views, Mc- 
Carthy said: "I think party leaders are 
setting the stage for some kind of new 
political alignment in the country" un- 
less they face up to the gut issues of the 

Such a realignment would be signifi- 
cant by 1972. he said. 

Humphrey and McCarthy, both of 
whom appeared on television Sunday, re- 
staled their stands regarding each other. 
The Vice President said he would sup- 
port McCarthy's candidacy if McCarthy 
won the nomination. But McCarthy again 
refused to pledge his support to Hum- 
phrey unless Humphrey modifies his 
views on the Vietnam conflict. 

Le Grand Charles 

Pres. Charles de Gaulle on Sunday 
won the greatesrt political victory of his 
long career, in national elections that 
gave his GauJlist Party the largest par- 
liamentary majority of any party since 
the fall of France's monarchy in 1793. 

The interior ministry said the Gaull- 
ists won at least 355 seats in the now 
487-meTnber National Assembly. In the 
out-going parliament, which de Gaulle 
diitsolved exactly one month ago, the 
Gaullists had only 242 seats, two less 
than a majority. 

TTie communists won 33 seats in the 
two weeks of voting, and their opposi- 
tion coalition partners, the Leftist Fed- 
eration, claimed 57 seats. The Centrists 
won 29 seats and 11 other seats went to 
candidates from minority parties. 

The victory represented a smashing 
personal triumph for de Gaule, who only 
one month ago was target of demands 
that he resign as president of France at 
the height of the "little revolution" of 
riots and strikes. 

Premier Georges Pompidou, who won 
re-election in the first round of voting 
last week, touted the victory as "a 


smashing defeat of those who wanted 
to impose their will on the nation 
through violence." Another Gaullist lea- 
der. Roger Frey, said the election re- 
sults were "beyond our most optimistic 

A Healthy Step 

It Wcis a good Week for Soviet-Ameri- 
can relations. 

First came the signing of the nuclecu- 
nonproliferation treaty by the U.S., Rus- 
sia, and Britain, and 58 nonnuclear na- 
tions. Then followed announcement that 
bilateral talks between the U.S. and the 
Soviet Union wall begin soon on an end 
to the arms race. Finally, a Vietnam- 
bound U.S. transport, which may have 
strayed over Soviet air space, was forc- 
ed to land by Soviet fighters, and then 
was quickly released after the U. S. 
issued an apology. 

The incident, first viewed as a rever- 
sal in Washington-Moscow rapport, thus 
became cmother positive sign that the 
Soviets have turned a comer, are act- 
ively seeking areas of accommodation, 
and are anxious to proceed with a re- 
laxation in their relations with the U.S. 
This is the widespread view in the Ad- 
ministration and on Capital Hill as re- 
ported by the Natk>nal Observor. 

Still, even the optimism over the e- 
vents of last week takes into accound 
the fact that Soviet movement toward 
co-operation with the U.S. is based on 
Russian self-interest, and that isn't bad 
as long as American objectives are also 

The signing of the nuclear nonprolif- 
eration treaty, after almost five years of 
wrangling, is regarded as lieing in the 
interests of both superpowers. Although 
two nuclear powers, France and Red 
China, have refusinl to participate, the 
25-yr. pact commits the non-nuclear na- 
tions that sign to refrain from produc- 
ing or receiving nuclear weapons in 
the future. 

James Earl Ray — 
Extraditon Granted 

After hearing testimony for two days, 
a British judge promptly denied the 
assertion that the assassination of Dr. 
Martin Luther King, Jr., was a |)olitical 
crime for which extradition is for- 
bidden by a treaty between Great Bri- 
tain and the United States. He then 

ordered James Earl Ray extradited to 
the United States. 

It was not the last test for the poli- 
tical-crime argument, however. Ray's 
attorneys still can appeal to a higher 
court, the Queen's Bench Division of 
the High Court of Justice. Failing there, 
they can appeal on certain grounds to 
the House of Lords, some of whose 
members serve as a court of last resort 
in Great Britain. But the crucial test 
was the initial one already made by 
London's principal magistrate, Frank 

Mr. Milton also decided that the man 
before him, captured in London on June 
8 with a Canadian passport identifying 
him as Ramon George Sneyd, was in fact 
James Earl Ray, an escapee from Mis- 
souri State Penitentiary. It was the 
first official finding on the identification. 
Fingerprints found on the weapon used 
to slay Dr. King have been identified by 
the FBI as Ray's, who had escaped pri- 
son in 1967 after serving 7 years of a 
20-year, armed-robbery sentence. 

Hippies — 

A Dream for Freedom 

Boston hippies hope soon to abandon 
their haunts on the Common and estab- 
lish a model "free community" on state 
land in the former Hingham Naval 
Ammunition Depot reservation. 

The plan was made public Sunday in 
a new hippie publication, "The Common 
Newsletter," a mimeographed two-page 
sheet distributed on the common. 

Hippie representatives have been in 
touch with the governor's office and the 
state Department of Natural Resources 
about setting up a permanent encamp- 
ment on a 3200-acre site acquired from 
the Federal government last year, 
according to the Boston Globe. 

The site — adjacent to an Army muni- 
tions complex will eventually be 
developed into a state park. The land 
encompasses parts of Hingham, Cohas- 
set, Scituatc and Norwell. It contains 
two small i)onds and a number of 
abandoned storage bunkers and dormi- 
tory buildings. 

The Common Newsletter, which is 
written by the league, urges its readers 
"... to just sit and dream about the 
possibilities" of the South Shore site. 
"We can have our own stores, medical 
services, arts, theater, you name it. 

Capital Punishment — 
A High Price To Pay

for Federal crimes. The death penalty

UM Upward Bound 
Given Follow-Up $ 

Congressman Silvio O. Conte (R- 
Mass) announced today that the Office 
of Economic Opportunity has awarded 
UMass $19,498 for follow-up of its Up- 
ward Bound Program, one of the pro- 
jects contributing to fighting the na- 
tion's War on Poverty. 

Conte had been in contact with 
Thomas A. Billings, National Director 
of Upward Bound, on behalf of UMass 
which had urgent need of the money 
to supplement the $154,637 of the 
original grant awarded in April. 

Dr. BiUings informed the Corigress- 
man today that the UMass request was 
5ne of three supplemental grants being 
awarded by the Office of Economic 
Opportunity for Upward Bound. 

Upward Bound is an educational Pro- 
gram that has been in operation for 
two years and aims at boosting the edu- 
cational chances of high school young- 
sters with potential who have been 
handicapped by education, economic, or 
cultural deprivations. 

The pattern at UMass is a seven- 
week summer session on the Amherst 
campus, with concentrated counseling, 
class work, and cultural programs

maximum effort for getting the most

Low School Passes; 
1969 Budget Tight 

Although not funded in the 1969 oper- 
ating budget for the University of Mas- 
sachusetts, the State House of Represen 
tatives has approved a hill establishing 
a law school at the Amherst campus. 

Its actual establishment awaits ap- 
proval by the Senate. The House vote 
last Friday brought favorable action 
there after a 106 102 roll call. Protests 
were made by Reps. David Locke. R- 
Wellesley, and Charles Long. R-West- 
wood. both attorneys, that there are al- 
ready "too many lawyers." 

Locke contended that to reject a dental 
school and approve a law school is 
senseless, but ran into solid opposition 
from some other lawyers who said good 
lawyers are still very much in demand. 
Rep. Allan McGuane, D-Greenfield, 
carrying the bill for House Ways and 
Means, said law school deans say they 
cannot handle more students. UM 
trustees support a law school as does 
the Board of Higher Education, and low- 
cost law school education is still needed, 
he said. 

Locke said such a school would cost 
$10 million, but McGuane said no con- 
struction is indicated. Figures were 
given that annual cost for 500 students 
would be some $500,000 and $139,000 
would be needed to plan a library and 
start a faculty. 

University trustees meeting Friday, 
heard the 1969 operating budget de- 
scribed as one which offers "no prospect 
for quality improvement." but re-allo- 
cated it nevertheless. 

Pres. John Lederle told the trustees 
the budget is tight and offers no new 
programs. He said no new funds are 
available for educational television and 
the law school, and that unless money 
is provided, summer school may have to 
be cut by up to 1.000 students in 1969. 

Lederle said that sufficient teaching 
personnel will be hired to meet projected 
Fall enrollment increases of 1,500 at the 
Amherst campus and 600 at UMass-Bos- 

The trustees found it necessary to re- 
assign funds because of cuts made t)e- 
fore the budget was approved by the

Chamber of Commerce and the Boston

The Columbiq Press Coveroge 

How Not To Report A Strike 

At 5 in the afternoon on May 2, ac- 
cording to the New York Times, 82 stu- 
dents gathered in front of the Manhat- 
tan home of Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, 
president and pubhsher of the Times, 
and a member of Columbia University's 
board of trustees. The students picketed 
for about 45 minutes, the Times re- 
ported. In the course of their demonstra- 
tion they chanted, "New York TIme»— 
print the truth." 

Sulzberger replied to their injunction 
indirectly, by issuing a statement to the 
effect that not his opinions, nor the 
opinions expressed on the editorial page 
nor the opinions of members of the pa- 
per's staff have any effect on the Times' 
news coverage. 

"In the coverage of the Columbia 
situation." Sulzberger concluded, "the 
Times has used its resources to provide 
full, accurate and dis-passionate cover- 
age and we shall continue to do so." 

But the Times did not provide such 
covearge, and neither did two other 
New York dailies, the New York Post 
and the Daily News. The Daily News is 

a right-wing tabloid, and not much could

Collar* Press Scrrice 

have been expected from it: the Post, 
though also a tabloid, is a liberal paper 
that takes its reporting seriously. 

The defects of much of the Columbia 
press coverage were of two kinds. First, 
the papens more or less consistently 
tried to nunimize the significance of 
what the protesters were doing, and to 
discredit them. This they accomplished 
by a variety of expedients, including: 
emphasizing the disruptive aspect of 
the protest; understating the number of 
protesters, and passing over the fact 
that this number grew precipitously 
during the week the buildings were oc- 
cupied; raising the charge of vandalism 
against them; more or less ignoring the 
issures they were raising; foregoing 
stories based on interviews with indiv- 
idual protesters; and giving the impres- 
sion that only students were standing 
in the way of a settlement, while the 
administration was making concessions. 

The second broad category of the 
press's failings in its Columbia cover- 
age has to do with the question of 
power. More than one commentator has 
condemned the demonstrators for mak- 
ing a "power play," and clearly they 
were trying to assert their own power. 
Yet the press never really clarified what 
the shape of the power struggle was. 
The papers carried reports of mediation 
efforts, by a faculty committee, for 
example, but failed to make clear what 
power, if any. the committee had to en- 
force a settlement on the opposing sides. 
The papers reported the comings and 
goings of officials and demonstrators 
representing various interested groups, 
but failed to make clear how much 
power each of the groups could wield in 
the situation. And beyond that the press 
largely failed to explain what some of 
the groups, the mayors office, for 
example, were doing to end the dispute, 
j^inally the press did hint that fear of 
a community uprising against the uni- 
versity figured in decisions made by 
Columbia officials, but never really ex- 
plained why Harlem was presumed to 
be so hostile toward the university. 

The AP, in a story sent out for after- 
noon papers Thursday (Hamilton Hall 
was taken Tuesday, April 23), neglected 
to say that new groups of protestors 
had taken Fayerweather and Avety 
Haflls, saying instead that demonstrators 
blocked entry t» those buildings The 
story went on to report that the protest 
mvolved "only a few hundred of the 
27,500 students enroUed." According to 
the Columbia Spectator, there are 
17,545 students enroHed at Coltrnibda 

yet all three New York dailies joined 
the AP in giving the larger figure. 
Furthermore, as Michael Stern pointed 
out in a SpiH^tator article, a "few hun- 
dred" students is one hell-of-a-^lot of stu- 
dents to risk expulsion and arrest by 
occupying a building, particularly in 
view of the fact that political activists 
at Columbia have traditionally come 
from the undergraduate body. There are 
just 2,800 undergraduates at the school 
(although, after the initial occupation, 
graduate students did become heavily 
involved in the protest.) 

The Daily News, in its April 25 issue, 
picked up the vandalism theme. It 
stories said that tJie office of Columbia 
President Kirk had been "ransacked and 
looted ' by the demonstrators and turned 
into a "shambles." It quoted a univer- 
sity spokesman who said the office was 
"a complete mess," and who went on to 
remark that "Waste-baskets were filled 
with water and banana peels, and other 
litter thrown around." 

(The Spectator carried a story on 
Thursday. April 23, which said that 
damage to Kirk's office had been mini- 
mal. It was written by a reporter who 
had been in the office, as the Daily News 
reporters evidently hadn't.) 

The Times, in an editorial on April 25 
entitled "Hoodlumism at Columbia," 
also touched on the vandalism theme. 
The editorialists condemned the "in- 
tolerable undemocratic nature of dic- 
tatorial student minorities, at Columbia 
and elsewhere, who undermine academic 
freedom and the free society itself by 
resorting to such junta methods as 
wrecking the university president's of- 
fice and holding administrators and 
trustees as hostages." 

If the editorial writers had not been 
so intent on phrase-making, they might 
have pointed out, in passing, that Col- 
umbia doesp't operate anything like a 
democracy. They could also have 
checked the Times' lead story on the 
protest, by David Bird, to find out what 
had happened to Kirk's office. Bird re- 
ported that the students had "hurled 
papers and books to the floor, damaged 
fixtures in the private bathroom, helped 
themselves to a supply of cigars and 
pasted to the windows signs saying 
"Liberated Area, Be Free to Join Us," 
which scarcely amounts to the "wreck- 
ing" of the office. 

Toward the end of the week, the 
press was given the chance to take up 
the "generous administration, pig- 
headed students" theme. The Post's Fri- 
day edition had a banner headline that 

Th* Statsamoat 

Columbia Yields a Point but . . . 

Followed by the subhead: 
Student Rebels 
Won't Give Up 

The lead, next to a picture of a faculty 
member who had blood on his hand 
from a head injury inflicted by a police 
man's club, disclosed that Kirk had call 
ed a temporary halt to the gym con- 
struction. Neither the Post's story nor 
the APs day lead story indicated that 
the decision had been made at the re- 
quest of Mayor Lindsay. Both stories 
implied that the administration had 
given in completely on the gym issue, 
while in fact the demonstrators had call- 
ed for a cancellation of the gym project, 
not a temporary halt. 

The very clear impression given by the 
Post and the AP was that the adminis 
t ration hnd made a magnanimous ges- 
ture, which only failed to bring about a 
settlement because the students stub- 
bornly insisted on amnesty. 

Pushing on into the Post's story, one 
learns that the injured faculty member 
pictured on the front page received hi^ 
wound when "50 plainclothesmen" scuf- 
fled with two dozen faculty members. 
Over on page 3 is the report that "about 
100 faculty members pledged last night 
to resist any attempt to eject demon- 
strators by force and arrayed themselves 
in front of four campus buildings where 
sit ins were underway." Finally, it be 
comes clear that the police had tried to 
break through the faculty lines in front 
of Low. 

So. it turns out the administration had 
called in the police and had begun send 
mg them in after the students— not a 
very conciliatory gesture, to my way of 

The Saturday Times filled in some of 
the gaps in the Post's account. Its lead 
that day was about mediation efforts by 
a faculty committee (efforts that were 
doomed to failure, by the way. because 
the faculty had alienated the demonstra- 
tors by blocking their entry into Low). 

Much further along in the story (which 
ran about three full columns worth on 
page 18). is the report about the police 
rush on the faculty early Friday. The 
reporter omits what must have been a 
dramatic scene, when one of Kirk's as- 
sistants announced at a faculty meeting 
that night the police were coming in. 
and the faculty responded with cries of 
"Shame, shame" with some of them 
rushing out of the room to block entry 
to the occupied buildings. The account 
does say. though, that after the initial 
confrontation between police and faculty 
Kirk gave in to a faculty demand that 
the police not confront the students. (In 
the same story, at the very end. is the 
report that Kirk's decision to halt con- 
struction of the gym had been made "on 
the advice of Mayor Lindsay.") 

In a small side-bar, also on page 18. 
is the report that police had occupied 
all buildings not held by the demonstra 
tors (following the police assault on 
Low). The headline, though, seemed cal- 
culated not to draw attention to this

rather interesting development: "Police 
Guarding Gates to campus." it said 
Only the subhead mentioned that police 
has occupied the university's buildings. 

If the editors didn't think much of the 
story Its author. David Bumham. seem- 
ed to recognize that the police action 
was somewhat unique. "The police mov- 
ed masses of men onto the campus of 
Columbia University and occupied every 
open building that had not been taken 
over by demon-strators," he began, and 
then went on to note that the university 
had never been "so embraced" by police. 

The administration, apparently, was 
not at all loathe to call on the police 
which would seem to raise questions 
about Its eagerness to negotiate a settle- 

On Friday, both the Post and the 
Times ran articles about the history of 
the gym controversy. Defining the na- 
ture of that controversy was obviously 
crucial if the papers were to illuminate 
the forces that underiay the Columbia 
dispute, because the gym issue was the 
one that brought black students' into 


In the May 5 edition of the Wash- 
ington Post there is a story about Co- 
lumbia by Nicholas Von Hoffman and 
Jesse W. Lewis, Jr., two reporters 
whose coverage was consistently bet- 
ter than that of most New York jour- 
nalists. In this story there is a quote 
from Teny Noyes, son of Newbold 
Noyes, the editor of the Washington 
Evening Star. 

The younger Noyes is quoted as 
saying, "You wouldn't have ibelieved 
what happened, what the police did. I 
wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't 
seen it. I was on the phone with my 
father for two hours telling him 
what's happening here. He ha.$ the 
straight story now, and they're going 
to print it." 

The same day, on the front page of 
the Sunday Star, there is a long ana- 
lytical piece about Columbia by Hay- 
nes Johnson, which concludes that 
the police eviction involved a "brutal 
and imnecessary show of force." 

alliance with the whites, which in turn 
broadened the base of support for the 
demonstration on campus. Their parti- 
cipation also made university and city 
officials wary of sending police into 
Hamilton Hall, the black stronghold. In 
addition, the history of the gym contro- 
versy could not easily be divorced from 
the whole history of Columbia's relations 
with Harlem. 

Regrettably, neither the Times* nor 
the Post's account of the gym contro- 
versy cited instances of Coiumbia's hand- 
ling of its Harlem tenants, which would 
have put the gym controversy into a 
larger perspective. The Post's account, 
though, made it a lot clearer why the 
gym had become" an issue. To under- 
stand how this was so, consider the dif- 
ference in the way the two papers dis- 

cussed the swimming pool that was add- 
ed to the proposed community section 
of the gym after a meeting between 
black leaders and Columbia officials 
last May. 

The Post's story, by Arthur Greenspan 
noted that when Percy Sutton, borough 
president of Manhattan, and other black 
politicians met with Kirk and some of 
his assistants, they said they wanted 
half the gym to be set aside for commu- 
nity use; the university representatives 
offered to build a swimming pool in- 

Peter Millones. who wrote the story 
for the Times, introduced his history 
of the gym controversy with the follow- 
ing paragraph: 

It (thp ifym) has become the focal point now 
for the many individuals and uroups who have 
opiKwed various Columbia |x>licies ovor the 
years for many reasons, includinir personal 
Ktun. politics, conservatitm and self-pres<-rva- 

Much of the remainder of his article 
was similariy vague (Millones did not 
provide the name of a single opponent 
of the gym — if he had wanted some, 
he might have chosen Thomas Hoving 
and August Hecksher, the past and pre- 
sent New York Parks Commissioners). 
When he got to his discussion of the 
swimming pool. Millones began by saying 
that the gym's opponents had not denied 
that "community youths could make 
valuable use" of such a pool. Two para- 
graphs later he wrote. "The swimming 
pool was not originally a part of the 
project, and there have been modifica- 
tions of the basketball court after de- 
mands by community groups." This last 
was the only hint about how the swim- 
ming pool came .o be included in the 
plans for the gynr. 

Besides giving less than satisfactory 
coverage to the gym controversy, the 
press. I've noted, failed to explain why 
university officials felt they had so much 
to fear from the community. There were 
only scattered hints to suggest that Co- 
lumbia's handling of its community rela- 
tions might have been less than gen- 
erous. On Friday. Jimme Breslin broke 
through this politeness barrier in his 
column in the Post. 

The protest is a "good thing." Breslin 
began, "but not good enough, because 
probably the whole city should go on 
.strike against the university ..." He 
went on to say that "Columbia, like most 
universities in urban areas, has spent 
the years making distinct contributions 
to the troubles we're in." 

Breslin didn't cite specifics, but the 
reader could find a few in the May 6 
Newsweek. Much of Newsweek's article 
was an attack on the demonstrators, but 
it did provide the following brief note 
on Columbia's handling of its community

Track Looms on Horizan 
But Too Late for Footrick 

Director of Athletics Warren Mc- 
Guirk was introducing each new mem- 
ber of the UMass coaching staff to the 
student body when he came to his new 
track coach. "Bill . . . Bill . . . uh," he 

"Fleafoot," another coach suggested 
promptly. "Bill Fleafoot," announced 
McGuirk, and snickers. That was in 
1954, Fleafoot's first year at UMass. 

Years later McGuirk was introducing 
the coach at an athletic department 
banquet. This time it was simply "Bull." 
That was in 1963, after Bull had put 
together six championship cross-country 
teams and just as he was building track 

One UMass track buff thought Mc- 
Guirk's introductions must have had 
Freudian undertones. "After all," he 
mused, "in hockey there's the hat trick. 
In baseball there's the hidden ball trick. 
In track what else but the Footrick?" 
Storm over "Nothing" 

The past decade in UMass track 
affairs has been shadowed by the feud 
between Warren McGuirk and Bill 
Footrick. Enter Freud. The boss- 
employee uneasiness would have had 
little significance except for an electri- 
cal storm over "nothing": since 1964 
UMass has not blessed itself with an 
outdoor track nor has it held a home 
indoor meet. So instead of Dagwood 
and Mr. Dithers, it was Ben-Hur and 
Messala or, if you will, John Wayne 
and Ho Chi Minh. 

McGuirk himself, in his vision of Red- 
man supremacy, lured Footrick to 
UMass. The new coach, who had built 
a reputation for success at Gardner 
High School, had also been something 
of a track phenomenon at Springfield 
College. He narrowly missed making the 
1932 Olympics in the javelin and would 
probably have gone to the '36 Olympics 
in Hitler's Gennany but he was tied to 
a summer camp in Maine. 

Footrick was given limited scholar- 
ship-power during his first few years 
but soon relinquished it, fearing pos- 
sible discord on the team unless every 
member was on a grant, a philosophy 
that remained untarnished during his 
14 years at UMass. 

Apply for academic scholarships, he 
advised his boys, so "you won't have to 
worry about Warren McGuirk." The 
word "worry" referred to cases, none of 
them documented, of course, in which 
athletes were reportedly threatened 
with disfranchisement unless they 
"cooperated" in thought, word and 
deed, whether or not they were in fact 
impoverished. UMass certainly would 
not be unique in that respect if such 
reports were matters of record. 



By Tom FitzGerald 

steaks Were Cheap 

"I got along very nicely without 
scholarships," Footrick says. His 
athletes did too, winning seven cross- 
country championships and the indoor 
and outdoor Yankee Conference track 
titles in 1966 and 1967. His cross-coun- 
try teams totaled a 75-42 record; indoor 
track, 37-24, and outdoor track, 36-37. 
Footrick won more friends them dual 
meets. He used to hold parties for his 
athletes and cohorts in the athletic 
department. He would get the steaks 
cheap from the butchers, whom he had 
coached at Gardner High. 

His boys were fiercely loyal to him 
and were united by their adversary, who 
was considered McGuirk. Several of 
them would besiege the athletic direc- 
tor's office to express disgust with their 
track-less university. They wrote bitter 
letters to the Collegian. One even wrote 
lengthy reports of the team's meets, 
usually spiced with such phrases as "the 
home-less wonders." 

Unless he was lying on an operating 
table, Footrick never missed practice. 
When he announced his retirement last 
year, he received words of support and 
congratulations from his former 
athletes. The letters came from across 

the country. South America, Europe 
and, of course, Asia. One letter from 
Vietnam to the Collegian cited his 
"ability to instill in his men the desire 
to win while always requiring the 
highest standards of sportsmanship and 
conduct. He has continually taken a 
?roup of inexperienced athletes and 
molded them into championship cali- 
ber." Trite, but enthusiastic. 

McGuirk seemed less moved by the 
moment; he sent nothing. For as Foot- 
rick jogged across campus in sneakers, 
always smiling (For years he played a 
clown, in bona fide Emmett Kelly make- 
up, for March of Dimes shows in Gard- 
ner), he personified "the small-time." 
The conflict between the two men was 
based on economics as much as their 
differing views of the track situation. 
Despite the granting of fiscal autonomy 
to UMass in 1961 and frequent merit 
raises for the newer coaches, Footrick 
put his hands on little more than the 
relay baton. 

Avoiding Philippics 

At his retirement dinner, as during 
his years at UMass, Footrick refused to 
conceal his opinion of McGuirk: "Mr. 
McGuirk has stated on many occasions 
that he didn't want to be surrounded by 

^i^^i'^ ii^lf^*^^ J"^ *]? "*? r'*'W,''^**'?" ~"'' Ch"'"" 8todl.y. whose t«m had won the Con- 
ferenr. titl* wid Pr«ndent John W. Lederle. holdintr the Beanpot. Footrick'g croiw-country tmm 
was also Conference champion that year. Note his plaque is upside-down. 




'yes-onen.' He prefers to have people in 
the department who can tell him when 
he is viTong. Therefore, on many occa- 
sions when my conscience dictated, I 
approached Mr. McGuirk to get my idea 
across. I soon learned that I was wrong. 
What Mr. McGuirk really needs around 
him is someone who will build up his 
confidence by making him feel right 
whether what he has done is right or 

Footrick, however, wanted to avoid 
desultory philippics amid the shower of 
gifts and praise heaped on him. He in- 
sisted he was leaving UM with "a good 
t taste in my mouth." 
Today he spends his time working in 
the shady backyard of his Gardner 
home, from which he made the 45-min- 
ute drive to Amherst for 14 years. The 
lawii, shrubs and flowers need as much 
persistent care as athletes. He has some 
75 medals from his own track days but 
values even more the mementos from 
his UM chums to "Bull Fleafoot" 

His crew-cut gray hair is not getting 
any darker since his retirement from 
UM although the summer-time life of 
leisure is a far cry from the affairs of 
the Boyden Building. In the fall he and 
his wife will journey by car and trailer 
to Mexico City for the Olympics. In the 
sprii>g he win take over as track coach 
at CusKing Academy. 

While the largest track in America is 
being built at UM, with a $100,000 sur- 
face coming in the spring, Footrick re- 
counts what his views were after the 
old track and Alumni Field were de- 
leted in favor of Fort Lederle, the im- 
pregnable administration building. 
Those views were 1) There was ade- 
quate time to plan for a new track; 
2) He should have been consulted on 
the new facility; 3 J The track should 
have been built around Alumni Sta- 
dium, with starting and finishing lines 
for distance runs inside its walls; and 
4) Funds for track were actually in- 
cluded in the allocation for the Stadium, 
which was completed in 1965. 
Loud aJMi Clear 
As for indoor track meets, Footrick's 
teams basked in the glass-roofed luxury 
of Curry Hicks Cage until 1964, when 
the bleachers were erected at the ends 
of the famed "court of the last resort," 
making track competition unfeasible. 
The last indoor track season brought 
out the Footrick-McGuirk conflict, lit- 
erally loud and clear. During a meet 
with UCortfi, McGuirk noticed that UM 
was running only one man in the mile, 
against several from UConn. "Do you 
^ mean to say we have only one miler?" 
^ McGuirk demanded. When Footrick ex- 
pressed confldei^ce that one man would 
win, McGuirk warned sternly, "Don't 
get cocky. " The point of the story that 
Footnck still laughs at is not that the 
UM runner won the race but that the 
brief conversation was carried by a 
loarby microphone to a large, appre- 
ciative audience in the stands. 

footrick says that the only reason 
UM could not hold track meets after

Looking Askance 

At the Week 

In Sports 


(For the Tacatfoninc Tom FitsGanId) 


Unemployment lines could become 
even longer this fall with the football 
players on strike and the bookies out 
of work. Negotiations between the Na- 
tional Football League owners and the 
NFL Players Association are still hung 
up on the pension plem. 

The players, who average $22,000 for 
six months work, are encountering 
harsh public opinion, particularly from 
the fans who may will face a sharp hike 
in ticket prices if the players' demands 
are met. 

Training camps, scheduled to open 
last weekend, have been delayed until 
some agreement is reached. General 
Manager Vince Lombardi of the Green 
Bay Packers said that the lack of pro- 
gress in the talks raises the possibility 
that the AU-Star Game with the college 
greats may be cancelled Aug. 2. Another 
possibility is that UMass Greg Landry 
may be holding a sign instead of the 
pigskin for the Detroit Lions this fall. 

Tigers by the Tail 

"Don't let the stars get in your eyes" 
was a hit song song about 15 years ago, 
but it might apply to Red Sox fans 
right now. Percentage-wise the Sox are 
better than they were last year at this 
time. They are now four games above 
the .500 mark compared to last year 
when they were only two games above. 

Winning eight straight games has 
been a big morale booster for the club, 
but last year they won 10 straight after 
the All-Star break. The Sox are still 
llVi games behind the league-leading 
Detroit. The Tigers have the biggest 
lead of any team in 21 years. The Tigers 
will probably still get their chance at 
St. Louis even if it is a year later than 
they expected. 

During the All-Star break the Sox, 
minus the stars, headed for the Cape 
for some fishing and golf. The best act 
there, they say, is at the club in Yar- 
mouth, where Tony C. croons "The 
Impossible Dream." And with Lonborg 
out, Santiago with tendonitis. Howard 
with a sore elbow, Scott in a slump and 
Yaz drawing more walks than a city 
planner, Boston will need another 
miracle finish. On the other hand, the 
Sox may leave the first division faster 
than the hipp»es left Boston Common. 

The Eyes Have If 

Sonny LLston went into the ring Sat- 
urday without his birth certificate to 
prove he is 36 and not 50 as many sus- 
pected. But Liston, who has lost only 
three fights in his career, scored a sev- 

en-round TKO over young Henry Clark. 
The referee called the bout when 
Clark's eyes had a glassy stare (prob- 
ably one of disbelief). Maybe the come- 
back trail for evil-eyed Sonny won't be 
as long as his police record after alL 

The 20 Formula 

The All-star break marks the half- 
way season for most of the teams, and 
it's time for some end of the season 
predictions. It has been a pitcher's sea- 
son so far partly because of the in- 
creased number of night games and the 
slider. Strictly on the basis of the first 
half, there will be six 20-game winners 
in the Nationals, Gibson and Briles (St. 
Louis), Marichal (San Francisco), Fry- 
man (Philadelphia), Drysdale (Los An- 
geles) and Koosman (New York). The 
Mets are leading in the E.R.A. column. 

The American League stands to have 
only three 20-game winners. McLain 
(Detroit), Stottlemyre (New York) and 
Pasqual (Washington.) There may be 
no American League hitters above the 
.300 mark in a few weeks. 

L.A. Freeway 

Wilt Chamberlain reportedly has been 
traded by the Philadelphia 76ers to Los 
Angeles. This time "The Stilt" over- 
priced himself when he tried to name 
the coach for the 76ers and asked for 
a $1 million contract over three years. 
But he had been with them for three 
years, so his average tenure was up. 
Wilt combining with Elgin Baylor and 
Jerry West on the Lakers, the Celtics 
may not be able to pull the champion- 
ship out of the fire next season. 

Two of a Kind 

Baseball isn't a forever game as two 
players proved on nationwide television. 
Yankee great Mickey Mantle and Joe 
Garagiola, catcher turned comic, were 
playing the "Match Game." The sen- 
tence was "John wants to play a 

game." While the other contestants 
were breaking their pencils to write 
"baseball," Mantle and Garagrola both 
scribbled "cards." 

Death or Taxes 

According to Art Model 1, owner of 
the Cleveland Browns and President of 
the National Football League. "Pro 
football faces a long and disastrous 
strike." It makes things seem even 
gloomier for Patriot fans and their flag- 
ging stadium hopes. 

Of course a season without them 
might only prove to the proper Boston- 
ians that they do not need the Patriots 
as much as they hate a tax increase.

William Henry Hastie. chief judge of 
the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 
Philadelphia, has been elected a life 
trustee of Amherst College. His election 
took place at the June meeting of the 
College's board of trustees. 

The Alumnae Fund of Smith College 
announced a total sum of $1,100,000 for 
the year in annual alumnae giving. The 
sum represents the largest annual gift 
from the fund in the history of the col- 
lege. The purpose of the fund is to pro- 
vide expendable gifts for the current 
operation of the college. 

The appointment of Robert A. Ward as 
dean of students at Amherst College has 
been announced by President Calvin H. 

Plimpton. A graduate of Amherst in 
1957. Ward has served for the past two 
years as assistant dean and director of 
student activities at the College. 

Twenty two new appointments have 
been made to the Amherst College fa- 
culty for the 1968-69 academic year. 
They include the College's first socio- 
logist, five visiting scholars, and two 
part-time members. 

Named to begin the program of studies O' 
in sociology voted last year by the fa ^ 
culty was Norman Bimbaum who, as 
professor of sociology, will offer courses 
that include an Introduction to Sociology, 
Social Classes in Modern American So- 
ciety, a study of the Universities, and 
the Sociology of Religion.

that season was that McGuirk refused 
to allow the endline bleachers to be 
taken down. "That hurt me more than 
anything else," Footrick says. 

At times it was Footrick's concern 
for your^gsters that brought on his trials 
in the athletic department. In 1960 he 
tried to recruit a star high school ath- 
lete from Springfield, Freddie Lewis, to 
UM until he found that the footbaU- 
track star's boeird scores made him 
doubtful academic material for UM. He 
advised Lewis of two small schools that 
he thought would better suit him and 
(curse the thought) explained his ad- 
vice to the press. But Charles Studley, 
Vic Fusia's predecessor, had also been 
hot on the trail, so Footrick was thence- 
forth anathema to the football staff. 

Often, however, Footrick's plight had 
genuine comic appeal. After the old 
track was removed, the joke was that 
with Warren "MoGrid" and UM con- 
struction being as they were, Footrick 
would be long gone before a new track 
was finished. And indeed he is, long

King Council Embarks on Broad Program 

"niere are too many people in this 
unlventity who, upon hearing the term 
'aociai reform' visualize a bunch of 
hippies a/ul radicals intent on blowing 
up the administration building. We must 
work to overcome this deficit." This is 
the initial goal of The Martin Luther 
King, Jr., Social Action Council as 
described by founder and board member 
Gilbert J. Salic. 

Spontaneous!/ generated as a result 
of Martin Luther King'.s assassination 
in Memphis last April 4, the Council 
is still in the process of organizing it- 
self. There are now only 15 active mem- 
bers on campus. Another 150 students 
are presently working independently 
prior to their return here in September. 

The Council's board of directors, 
which was chosen, according to Salk, 
"... as a solid, stable core around 
which the Council could form." has as 
its chairman Rev Ronald Hardy. The 
directors include Provost Oswald Tippo. 
Associate Dean of Students Mark Noff- 
singer. Professors Lsidore Silver, Wil- 
liam Wilson, and Robert Tucker, and 
students Maryann DePietro. Cheryl 
Eastmond, and Ken Mosakowski. Each 
board member is an active member of 
one or more committees. 

With the aid of the $41,000 Student 
Senate appropriation, the Council is 
already beginning to achieve some 
imprpiwive Kf>als. During the course of 
this summer, $30,000 will br utilized to 
finance counseling of 125 sperially 
admitted negro students. These .students 
were administered aptitude tests to 
determine their qualification for this 
project. A majr>rity come from ghettrjR 
such as Roxbury, wherr, as Mr. Salk 
noted, "Schools are considered to con- 
tain kids, rather than educate them." 
Some are potentially caf>able of the 
University of Ma.ssachu.sett.s, but acade- 
mically deficient. These students will 
be intensively tutored by chosen grad- 
uate students on a one-to-one ba.sis, 
with the ultimate goal of neutralizing 
their deficiencies. 

The Council is not restricting its aid 
to |x>tential college students. In co- 
ordination with Andy Griffln of the 
Northern Education Service. The King 
Council is attpmi>ting to recruit coun- 
selors, recreation directors, anrl funds 
for a slimmer camp. The camp in 
CH)shcn, which has been donated, is 
dpsigne<l to allow the financially unable 
to enjoy a vacation. Whole families will 
inhabit the camp on a weekly ba.sis 
Provisions will also be made for week- 
end or daily visits. 


by Kevin AAacMillan 

On July 15, the council will finance 
a speech by Frank Joyce here at 
UMaas. Joyce is the founder of the 
People Against Racism, an organization 
which operates in Detroit and Boston. 
He will be the first of a planned series 
of speakers who will attempt to eluci- 
date social injustice in America. His 
speech is entitled "A History and 
Definition of Racism in the United 
States." A subsequent workshop on the 
control of racism is planned the follow- 
ing week. 

The Council has been active locally 
as well. It has proven instrumental in 
the employment of Negroes in down- 
town Amherst. As late as tiiree weeks 
ago there was not one Negro employed 
in shops or businesses patronized by 
students from UMass. There are now a 
number of businesses with black help. 
One bank has a black teller and is 

seeking a Negro officer, all as a result 
of peaceful negotiations. 

Latest efforts have bc^en channeled 
toward the campus itself. A Council 
committee has met with representatives 
of the notorious construction companies 
who are reshaping the campus. A small 
investigation revealed the fact that ^^ 
there was only one black construction gft 
worker employed by them. After these ^ 
conferences, the companies took a 
genuine interest in employing Negro 
help. Representatives for O'Connell have 
agreed to recruit directly from the 
primarily black areas. The council has 
now set its sights on the construction 
unions over the lack of black appren- 

Among the Council's future goals is 
the establishment of a library com- 
prised of literature pertinent to social 
problems — racism, poverty, and war. 


Black Power Means Black Action

to the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 
has been action. 

"And that's good. Because it's black

Porter Sargent's Extending Horizons

tionally by reviewers and commentators.

bour's book on Black Power "the best to 

In a recent conversation. Barbour was 
discussing the possible impact of his 
book on events now taking place in 
America. Since the assassination of Dr. 
King, a chain of "black action " events 
has cau.sed a faint glimmer of hope 
among some black leaders. 

As examples. Barbour cited recent oc- 
currences in Boston, where the young 
writer moved from Washington, DC, to 

• Sit ins protesting the existence of 
parking lots on land that once held low- 
income housing. Demolition of existing 
dwellings has been halted. Spurred by 
Thomas I Atkins, only black member of 
the Boston City Council, a "conflict-of 

interest" probe of the parking lots is 
shaping up. 

• FormaticMi of a Small Business De- 
velopment Center in Boston's Roxbury 
section to aid development of black- 
operated businesses in black neighbor 

• Gift of a former synagogue and 
school to Boston's black community for 
development of a drama and art cen- 
ter. The facilities — values at more than 
$1 million— were sold by Jewish organ 
izations to the Elm Lewis School of Fine 
Arts for $1. The scope of the donation 
and plans for future development of the 
cultural centere are believed to con- 
stitute historic firsts in the nation. 

• Announcement by Avco Corporation 
of plans to build a printing plant in the 
heart of the Roxbury-Dorchester Negro 
section. Employment will be predomin 
antly black. It is believed to be the first 
instance of a white-run corporation build- 
ing a major branch in a black commu 
nity and turning over management and 
operation to blacks. 

• Black student protestors at Boston ^ 
University asking for higher numbers of r» 
blacks among students and faculty and 
increa.sed scholarship aid for black stu- 
dents. The University President called 

10 or 11 student demands "reasonable" 
and promised they would be met.

events are. For example. Dr. Nathan

There is also a film program planned 
for this fall. A weekly coffee hour in 
dormitory lobbies is being considered. 

When asked to describe the student 
body's attitude toward social problems, 
Gilbert Salk could only say, "There's no 
way to get around the word ... It is 
apathy." He pointed out the fact that 
thousands turned out for a spontaneous 
demonstration when the Red Sox won 
the pennant, while the much publicized 
memorial service for Martin Luther 
King, Jr., drew approximately 500 
people. Salk also noted that the table 
which is set up in the lobby of the stu- 
dent union every Tuesday and Friday 
has been virtually ignored. The table 
is there to disseminate information 
and to recruit volunteers. He offered 
an analogy: "The thing I most vividly 
remember about my first year of college 
was waking up in the morning and 
hearing on the news that the hurricane 
had passed. I never knew it was

defines Black Power in terms of com- 
munity leadership. In his essay. Dr 
Wright states: 

"However wise it may be. no outside 
leadership has that crucially significant 
ingredient of that inner drive and ur- 
gency to be free which can come only 
from one who is a part of the co- 
pressed. " 

Most black programs, however their 
particular objective or approach may 
vaiy, stress this question of leadership

As Barbour points out: 

"Black leadership does not necessarily 
exclude white cooperation. On the con- 
trary, white cooperation can be impor- 
tant if America is to be saved from

Columbia Strike . . . 

(Continued from page 9) 

have had reason to fear Hariem after all. 


A lot of attention has been given to the 
press coverage of the police bust, and 
rightly so, because much of it was pretty 
bad. Furthermore, there's no doubt at 
all that the police were brutal: big-city 
mayors don't admit that some of their 
police used "excessive force," as Mayor 
Lindsay did, unless the evidence is pretty 
overwhelming. I am foregoing a lengthy 
analysis of the bust coverage, however. 
I have two reasons for doing so. 

First, this article can't go on forever. 
Second, I feel the coverage of the bust 
followed a pattern that was pretty much 
predictable. One would have expected 
the Post, with its basically civil liberta- 
tian outlook, to become much more sym- 
pathetic to the student point of view 
after the police violence, and the Post 
did. The Times is also protective of civil 
liberties, but apparently the need to de- 
fend Kirk's decision overrode the orienta- 
tion, and the Times underplayed the pol- 
ice violence. The Daily News, never very 
concerned about the civil liberties (rf 
those with whom it disagrees, remained 
solidly opposed to the demonstrators. 

The AP was on middle ground in its 
bust coverage. It mentioned the police 
violence in the lead of its story on the 
bust, and later on. it reported that Kirk's 
office was found in "relatively good con- 
dition" with no damage except for a 
"bent Venetian blind." In the same story, 
though, the AP announced that Kirk had 
accepted a four-point peace plan before 
the bust, and implied that the demon- 
strators had prevented a peaceful settle- 
ment by insisting on amnesty as a pre- 
condition for negotiations. In fact, though, 
the plan proposed by Kirk fell short of 
the faculty's recommendations, and thus 
could hardly have been acceptable to the 


There is one more story that I want to 
mention, an AP analysis of the Columbia 
protest that was sent out for the Sunday, 
May 12 editions of AP's subscribing 

The analysis is based largely on a 
"step-by-step play for campus rebellion" 
written by Mark Rudd. chairman of Co- 
lumbia SDS, last October. The plan call- 
ed for a program of organizing, propa- 
ganda and research that would lead 
eventually to "Phase V: Mass Action. 
April. A sit-in at Low Library which, 
after one day, turns into a general strike. 
University capitulates . ' ' 

I don't doubt the document is authen- 

tic. I don't doubt that somewhere in 
SDS there is a fiery-eyed zealot who has 
drawn up a step-by-step plan for the con- 
quest of the universe. The point is, 
though, that any one familiar with the 
recent history of the SDS chapter at Co- 
lumbia would know how absurd it is to 
imagine that Mark Rudd and his plan 
were responsible for the upheaval there. 
SDS's campus support was on the decline 
throughout the year. The administration 
ignored the chapter's demonstrations, 
and so SDS failed to generate the same 
kind of ferment as it had the previous 
year. The night before the demonstra 
tion that led to the take-over of Hamiltwi. 
many members of the chapter opposed 
holding it because they were afraid it 
would be another flop. 

But none of this matters. The point is 
that millions of readers will see the AP's 
story, and be able to say, "Ah ha, just 
as I suspected — that one. lousy, conniv- 
ing bastard caused it." And the more 
sophisticated readers of the Times will 
be able to say "Ah yes . . . it is the 
destructive few, reared on Lenin and 
Marcuse, who are responsible." And 
they'll all be wrong, but they'll feel 


In this analysis I haven't tried to dis- 
tinguish between slanting that appears 
to have been deliberate and that which 
is more likely by inadvertance. It may 
well be there was pressure from the 
higher echelons of some pap>ers — par- 
ticularly the Times — to make sure the 
coverage was not too favoraWe to the 
protestors. Jack Newfield has written in 
the Village Voice that the Times was 
given the police "battle plan" for evict- 
ing the students long before the bust, 
and that may well be. My own feeling 
is that if so, it doesn't matter, nor does 
any pressure that might have been exert- 
ed by Times executives. 

To my way of thinking the Times was 
bound to be against the demonstrators 
just as surely as the Voice was bound 
to be for them. Like its less prestigious 
competitors, it has always been esssen- 
tially a guardian of the status quo. Co- 
lumbia only revealed this alignment 
more clearly than usual.

Johnson stressed that he wanted "this era to go down in history as a 
period when young people and the government belonged to each other." 

thy campaign has decreased, however, 
because McCarthy is trying to demon- 
strate that he is not merely a spokes- 
man for young radicals, but that he ap- 
peals to businessmen, educators, poor 
people, and almost all other segments 
of society. 

Sam Brown, the Harvard divinity stu- 
dent who managed McCarthy's student 
canvassing in the primaries, said, "We 
have come to realize that the student dis- 
tinction is not a real one. Younger people 
are capable of doing all the things other 
people are capable of doing. What we 
actually have is a group of volunteers 
for McCarthy in which students are an 
important part." 

In the next few weeks before the Dem- 
ocratic convention. McCarthy's support- 
ers will be trying to persuade delegates 
to the convention that McCarthy has 
popular support. Brown said thousands 
of youne people across the country will 
be circulating petitions of endorsement 
and organizing mass meetings on the 
local level to demonstrate McCarthy's 
widespread popularity. 

Brown thinks more students are work- 
ing for McCarthy now than during the 
primaries, "but it's not so evident be- 
cause we don't have the massive con- 

Vice President Hubert Humphrey, the 
leading Democratic candidate, is trying 
desperately to gain support from large 
numbers of young people. His problem 
is that he is considered too liberal by 
conservatives, and at the same time he 
is rejected by many liberal and radical 
students because of his support of Pres- 
ident Johnson's policies in Vietnam. 

Richard Davis, a coordinator of a 
group called Young Citizens for Hunru 
phrey. said students on college and uni- 
versity campuses will be flooded with 
special literature about Humphrey this 
summer and in the fall. The literature 
will contain the Vice President's views 
on such topics as alternatives to military 
service, the role of students in university 
decision making, and expansion of the 
Peace Corps. 

"Our greatest difficulty is ignorance." 
said Davis. "Students simply do not 
know anything about the Vice President 
other than about his stand on Vietnam, 
and most of that is misinformation. We 
want to present the record of this man. 
which really has been fairly radical." 
(Continued on Page i) 

The President, at the time, had con- 
siderable support from students, and his 
statement was a plea for more young 
people to get on his bandwagon. John- 
son's opponent, ultra conservative Barry 
Goldwater, also thought it was essential 
to have student support, and he rallied 
more than 30,000 members of the Young 
Americans for Freedom and 100,000 
members from the high school Young 
Republicans to his cause. 

Today, it is clear that President John- 
son's ambition to involve young people 
in government has not been realized. In 
fact, during the last four years young 
people have become more alienated 
from the political process than ever be 
fore. Had Goldwater been elected, the 
same probably would be true, perhaps 
to an even greater extent. 

But a new Presidential campaign is 
underway, the candidates again are try- 
ing to sell themselves to the student 
population, and young volunteers again 
are playing a central role in the cam- 
paigns. Student involvement in politics 
was a major news story almost every 
day during the primaries this spring 
when Sen. Eugene McCarthy and the 
late Sen. Robert Kennedy, with the help 
of students, piled up thousands of votes 
against President Johnson. Now, as both 
the Democratic and Republican conven- 
tions approach, all of the candidates, 
major and minor, are depending on stu- 
dents to demonstrate that they have 
widespread popular support. 

Even third party candidate George 
Wallace has a small army of loyal stu 
dent followers. Last week, Wallace 
chartered two planes to send about 150 
college students, mostly from Alabama, 
to Massachusetts to gather signatures 
for a petition drive to get his name on 
the November ballot there. Tommy Gal 
lion, national coordinator for the Wallace 
campaign, boasted that he "filled up the 
planes in less than 24 hours and we had 
to turn hundreds away." 

Gallion added. "These are sharp col- 
lege students, too. We have many college 
fans, a lot more than we realized 

Although most of the candidates' staffs 
are reluctant to estimate how many stu- 
dents are working for them, most ob- 
servers agree that McCarthy still has 
the largest body of student volunteers. 
The emphasis on students in the McCar- 


Jazz vs. Shutterbugs 

Dear Sdr: 

I don't know how many students have 
heard the Elysian Time Machine due to 
circumstances suioh as: their concerts 
are never given recognition, the red-tape 
echelon doesn't believe in jazz, or that 
perhaps administrative what-nots live in 
a world of poor taste. 

Last Saturday night this jazz-rock 
group appeared in the Cape Cod Lounge 
at the request of Camera Club Conven- 
tion officials. As tax^paying students of 
this state-supported University, I and 
about 60 other students found ourselves 
in a rather embarrassing position. The 
audience and the performers were ac- 
cused of destroying a valuable photo- 
graph collection. (Was it that we were 
breathing too heavily and the humidity 
was doing in Artistic Achievement?) 

Under the janitors' directions, the 
leader of the jazz group and a local stu- 
dent artist had moved the exhibit board 
aside in order to position the piano. 
Things were swinging into a 6/8 when 
the melee began. The same man who 
suggested the concert be held in the

exhibition lounge (i.e. President of the 
Convention), now ran in accusing the 
audience of being a tribe of wild apes. 
Well, those musicians, I think, are no 
ape&— unless you've decided Brubeck is 
a chimp. If a group of musicians can't 
play in their Student Union without 
harassment, where can they play? 
There is so little talent and so much 
noise; why add rage and obviously in- 
ept planning to the mess? The Elytdan 
Tim© Machine has been aired over 
WFCR and WMUA, has WGBH-TV in 
the future — ibut was closed down Sat- 
urday night halfway through a con- 

(Continued from Page 1) 
Davis said he could not estimate the 
number of young people supporting Hum- 
phrey, but he added that "the amount 
of student support has increased five- 
fold within the last two weeks." United 
Democrats for Humphrey issued a news 
release this week saying it has 150 work- 
ers with an average age of under 35. 

On the Republican side. New York 
Gov. Nelson Rockefeller is making the 
biggest play for student support. Bob 
Harris, national chairman of the New 
Majority for Rockefeller, a group com 
posed of young people under 27 years- 
old, estimates that more than 50,000 
young people presently are "actually 
working" for Rockefeller. 

"Our basic program is one of canvass- 
ing and street corner petitioning," Har 
ris said. Student groups in the nation's 
major cities are going into neighbor- 
hoods, passing out Rockefeller literature, 
and attempting to .sell Rockefeller to the 
public on a grass roots, person -to person 
basis. "We have an extensive program 
reaching into the black neighborhoods." 
Harris said. "We are attempting to 
reach and bring black young people into 
the campaign. There has been very, very 
little of this by any (rf the candidates 
except maybe by Kennedy." 

Members of the New Majority also are 
organizing a massive letter writing cam- 
paign to the delegates to the Republican 
convention. The students are trying to 
sell the theory that Rockefeller is the 
only Republican candidate with enough 
support to win in November. 

Unlike most candidates, former Vice 
President Richard Nixon is not making 
"a direct appeal to youth, exclusive of 
other factions of the society." says Mort. 
Allen. Nixon's student coordinator. Nix- 
on, he explained, "is appealing to a 
cross section of the American public." 

Nevertheless. Nixon has a youth organ 
ization. and Allen says the goal is to 
have Nixon clubs "on every college 
campus in the country when school opens 
in the fall." Allen says the Nixon strate- 
gy goes far beyond the convention.

has student supporters. "We have about 
1.000 members ($1 each for membership 
dues), and we think that's pretty good 
for a non candidate." said Bruce Wein 
rod, executive director of Students for 
Reagan. "We have chapters on about 
200 campuses." Weinrod said at least 
300. and probably more, students for 
Reagan will attend the Republican con 
vention to show there is widespread sup 
port for Reagan's nomination. 

In addition to the thousands of students 
who are participating in the Presidential 
campaign, however, thousands more are 
not involved. Many of these find McCar 
thy unacceptable, and the other candi 
dates even more so. Some supported 
Kennedy, but have dropped out since the 

Jim Flug. student coordinator for Ken- 
nedy during the primaries, says he 
thinks of the Kennedy students 
have picked up other projects. "A lot 
of students who helped us are working 
for gun control legislation, or just trying 
to keep the momentum going in terms 
of working for the ideals Sen. Kennedy 
worked for." 

Both McCarthy's and Rockefellers stu- 
dent leaders claim many of Kennedy's 
followers are helping them. 

Of all the student organizations which 
have been formed in support of presi- 
dential candidates, the group working 
for former Minnesota Gov, Harold Stas- 
sen may be the most unique. "I used to 
work for McCarthy," says Christopher 
Simpson, a volunteer worker for Students 
for Sta.ssen, "but they didn't give me 
much to do and it was all busy work. 
But virtually everybody who works for 
Stasiien can participate in the creative 

Simpson is the only student co-ordina- 
tor who admits that his candidate has 
only a small student following. Most of 
Stassen's student support is in Wiscon- 
sin. Minnesota, and New York. 

"One thing about Students for Stassen 
is that we are more established than any 
of the other student groups," says Simp- 
•son. "We date back to at least 1948,"

Steep Rise In January Call Predicted 

The Paris peace talks have so far had 
no visible effect on the course of the 
Vietnam war, nor on certain of thie more 
disruptive by-products of that war, such 
as the draft. 

Shortly after President Johnson pro- 
posed the talks, the Defense I>epartment 
announced that draft calls for May 
would decline sharply from the previous 
month. Although the two appeared to be 
connected, they in fact were not, ac- 
cording to a Washington expert on man- 
power distribution. 

Mrs. Betty Vetter, an official of the 
Scientific Manpower Commission, a pri- 
vate research organization in Washing- 
ton, has explained that draft calls run 
in 18-month cycles. According to Mrs. 
Vetter, the period of high draft calls 
from January to April of this year cor- 
responds to a similar period 18 months 
earlier, July-November 1966. 

She predicts, therefore, that draft 
calls will undergo another steep rise in 
January, 1969, unless there is a major 
cutback in the size of the ^rmed serv- 
ices by then. 

What this means in terms of the cxaJ- 
lege student facing the draft is that re- 
latively fewer college graduates are 
likely to be inducted before January 
than after, although Mrs. Vetter believes 
most of the draftees from September on 
will be college graduates. 

The Defense Department's projection 
for the fiscal year 1969 is that 62.5 per 
cent of its 240,000 draftees wUl be col- 
lege graduates, compared with 3.8 per 
cent of its 240.000 draftees will be col- 
cording to Mrs. Vetter, that percentage 
may be approximately correct if the I>e- 
partmcnt can hold its draft calls to the 
level projected. She warns, though, that 
the Department consistently has under- 
estimated its draft needs in the past, and 
that if the draft total is higher than pre- 
dicted more college graduates will be 

There are various alternatives l)esides 
going into the service for the students 
facing induction this coming fall, and 
for the many others who wiU be receiv- 
ing induction notices when the draft 
calls rise in January. A brief examina-

tion lof what has been happening to con- 
scientious objectors and draft resisters 
so far should illuminate what college 
graduates who one of these al- 
ternatives can expect. 

Applicants for conscientious objector 
status may tind more difficulty in be- 
ing recognized as a CO. than has been 
the case in the past. Harold Sherk, 
executive director of the National Serv- 
ice Board for Religious Objectors, says 
he and others on the board believe there 
have been more rejections than usual 

No one has any statistics to back up 
this claim, however, and according to a 
spokesman for the Central Conunittee 
for Conscientious Objectors (CCCO) in 
Philadel-pliia, the great majority of CO. 
applicants who are turned down and 
suusequently arrested lor relusing in- 
duction are Jehovah's Witnesses. (Ac- 
cording to Government records, almost 
80 per cent of the 748 men now serving 
prison sentences for refusing induction 
are Jehovah's Witnesses.) 

If the prospects for CO. applicants in 
civilian life are somewhat ambiguous, 
though, they are clearly poor for C.O.'s 
in the military. The services permit CO. 
applications, but traditionally they have 
not allowed such an application to in- 
terfere with a serviceman's orders. If a 
CO. applicant is ordered to Vietnam, 
therefore, and refuses, his application 
has not forestalled a court-martiad. 

Once involved in a court-martial, a 
serviceman cannot defend himself 
against any charge by saying he is a 
CO. Under military law, such a claim 
has no legal standing. The military 
courts, however, recently have shown 
an inclination to reduce arbitrary re- 
strictions governing CO. cases. 

For potentied draftees who decide to 
refuse to serve, a primary concern is 
the emphasis being placed on draft cases 
by the Justice Department. Over the 
past three years, the number of cases 
involving draft law violators has risen 
sharply, from 642 in the Fiscal year 
1966, to 1,424 in 1967, to 1,655 in the 
first 11 months of Fiscal 1968. These 
figures are likely to undergo another 

sharp rise during the present fiscal year 
as a result of the iiiifusion of a great 
many college graduates into the draft 

Nevertheless, there are centeun fac- 
tors working in favor of draft resisters 
at least for the present. First, the nimn- 
ber ol defendants adjudged not guilty 
has risen relative to the number charged 
with violations. In Fiscal 1966, just 11 
draft law violators were found not 
guilty, while in the first 11 months of 
the Fiscal year 1968 the number was 56. 

Second, the Justice Depcu-tment ap- 
parently is still reluctant to speed up 
the handling of draft cases. After pro- 
secuting a handful of cases that involved 
draft card burnings, the Department has 
decided to give up doing so, and to pro- 
secute only cases involving induction 
refusals. Needless to say, those who 
burn draft cards are likely to refuse in- 
duction as well, but the Department 
policy at least provides some delay for 
draft resisters who have burned or 
turned in their draft cards. 

Finally, Attorney General Ramsey 
Clark recently told Melvin Wulf of the 
American Civil Liberties Union that he 
doesn't plan to speed up prosecutions of 
draft cases. Clark has been under pres- 
sure from Selective Service Director 
Lewis B, Hershey and some members 
of Congress to crack down on draft 

In spite of these factors, the number 
of cases involving draft law violators 
will undoubtedly rise in the coming 
months, and there is good evidence to 
indicate that those convicted will face 
stiffer jail sentences than draft resisters 
have in pnevious years. The average sen- 
tence fop a draft law violator rose from 
25.4 months in 1966 to 32.1 months in 

There is considerable variation in the 
length of sentences imposed in different 
parts of the country, however. In Okla- 
homa, 10 of 11 men sentenced under the 
draft law were given five year sentences 
in the Fiscal year 1967. The percentages 
also were high in Kentucky and Michi- 
gan. In California, by contrast, 22 out oi 
173 defendants in draft cases were 
placed on probation.

Politics '68 

Post Time 

The following are some of the devel- 
opments in the world of politics last 
week as candidates jockeyed for posi- 
tions prior to the opening of the nomi- 
nating conventions in a few weeks. 

Nelson A. Rockefeller Satiirday offer- 
ed a four-stage plan to end the war 
"within six nvonths" and to guarantee 
the Viet Vong a role in South Viet- 
nam's political life. 

Withdrawal at Start 

The Rockefeller proptosal would start 
with the withdrawal of 75,000 U. S. 
troops in exchange for a North Viet- 
namese pullback. An international force 
would supervise the withdrawal and 
serve as a buffer. 

Next would come a ceasefire, free 
elections, complete North Vietnamese 
withdrawal and the removal of the bulk 
of American troops. Those Americans 
remaining would be cor. fined to fixed 

Finally, through negotiations, Hanoi 
and Saigon would decide whether to 
unify the two Vietnams. 


John M. Bailey, the Democratic Na- 
tional Chairman, said last week that he 
expected Senator Eugene J. McCarthy 
to be given an opportunity to speak at 
the party convention in Chicago next 

Questioned by reporters, Mr. Bailey 
said that Senator McCarthy, as a mem- 

ber of the Minnesota delegation, would 
be entitled to participate in debate as 
long as his remarks were germane. 

Asked whether he thought Mr. Mc- 
Carthy might be permitted to address 
the convention in the debate over a 
Vietnam plank in the platform that his 
followers have prornised to bring, Mr. 
Bailey replied: 

"I would assume he'd be recognized." 

In mid-June Senator McCarthy pro- 
posed that he and Vice President Hum- 
phrey be invited to speak to the Dem- 
ocratic convention before the delegates 
voted on the Presidential nomination. 
Traditionally, candidates do not speak 
to the convention except to accept the 
nomination or withdraw. 

Richard M. Nixon called on Congress 
to strengthen gim control legislation by 
fixing a mandatory jail sentence "for 
any felon" using arms in committing a 
serious Federal offense. 

Urging similar enactments in the 50 
states, the former Vice President de- 
clared such legLslation "would fall with 
decisive impact upon the estimated 115,- 
000 professional criminals in this coun- 
try. . .who are responsible for most of 
the crimes of violence and brutality." 


Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy chairged the 
Johnson administration had the power 
and the money to do more to feed mol- 
lions who "today are starving." 

In a position paper McCarthy con- 
tended that the Johnson administra - 
tion's "failure to make full use of fe-d- 
eral funds or federal power" has left 
hunger unaUayed. 

"Millions of Americans today are 
starving," he said. "Hunger in Americn 
is a national disgrace." 

His charge echoed those made by the 
Poor Peoples' Campaign in Wasihington 
last month. He contended that Agri- 
culture Secretary Orville Freeman could 
have spent $527 million for food for 
hungry Americans, but refused to do so. 


€leorge C. Wallace took issue Tues- 
day with the findings of the Kemer 
commission on civil disorders. 

"They're trying to tell all of you that ^^ 
you're guilty," he said. "The country s ^ 
not sick, the Supreme Court is sick. ' 

The former governor of Alabama said 
the Supreme Court is "handcuffing the 
police," and added that he "stands with 
the police." 

Wallace drew mixed boos and cheers 
from an audience of 350 in the town of 
Methuen when he criticized protests and 
unrest among campus youths. 

007 Goes Overboord 

Over Spying 

A House subcommittee reported last 
week that spies for the United States 
were collecting information so fast thai 
their chiefs did not have time to read it. 
The backlog, the panel said, may have 
contributed to recent intelligence fail- 
ures such as capture of the intelligence 
ship — U.S.S. Pueblo off North Koroa. 

"The Defense Appropriations subcom- 
mittee said unprocessed reports on 
Southeast Asia alone recently fiUed 517 
linear feet of file drawer space at the 
headquarters of the Defei se Intelligence 
Agency. The agency was created in 
1961 five months after the failure of 
the Bay of Pigs invasion.

Exec Council President Has Many Plans 

By Mark SUvennaa 

"The council has no written his- 
tory, therefore we can't find any pre- 
vious legisQation to follow." With 
bhese words. Summer Executive 
Council President Stafford Sheehan 
cited the council's major problem in 
passing effective legislation for this 

Because there is no written record 
of past summer governments, this 
year's council is forced to set its pre- 
cedents as it goes along. This prob- 
lem is more serious than it may 
sound, since, according to Sheehan, 
the reason tnere can be no open 
house F>olicy this summer is because 
there was no previous policy on 
which to base any legislation this 

Sheehan explained that, because 
of this proiblem, the Executive Coun- 

cil must create a basic legislative 
program that will provide future 
summer governments with a basis for 
action, and will also pass needed 
legislation for this summer. Four 
Council Committees have been 
formed to chanel legislation. They 
are service, legislative, finance, and 
socicil. All committees are open to all 
Summer students. 

Some of the immediate legislation 
being considered by the Council in- 
cludes uniform constitutions for all 
houses, the granting of portions of 
the Council's 1,500 special concert 
budget to various houses for social 
activities, and the initiation of a 
filing system for this Summer's legis- 

One of the councils problems to 
date is that only about two-thirds of 
its members attend its n>eetings .To 

remedy this problem, a roll^all will 
soon be initiated because, in the 
words of the Council's President, 
"Summer govern mien t is serious 
enough to warrant attendance." How- 
ever, he was "very optimistic" in re- 
gard to the council's ability to meet 
its responsibilities, 

"The Senators in the Executive 
Council this summer are taking their 
positions seriously. If this seriousness 
of purpose can be backed by their 
fellow student's support, the Council 
can become an effective legisilative

are President Staff Sheehan, Vice 
President James Fox, Secretary Chris

digested information might have con- 
tributed to the Pueblo seizure, the Israe- 
li attack on the Liberty, another in- 
telligence ship, and the lack of ad- 
vance information about the Commu- 
nist Tet offensive in Vietnam. 

On The 20th Day 

Rev. Ralph David Abemathy has 
vowed to resurrect the Poor Peoples' 
campmgn from the smoldering ruins of 
Resurrection City. Abernathy made this 
promise to a group of supporters that 
met the civil rights leader following his 
release from prison last week. 

Abernathy ended a 20-day sentence 
imposed for leading a demonstration on 
Capitol Hill June 24. 

"I have now been in jail for freedom 
and justice 20 times and I expect to go 
again, as long as America still tor- 
tures her poor people," he said. 

"I know my having gone to jail was 
not in vain. I know I was there for a 
noble cause." 

He spoke again about carrying his 
antipoverty campaign "across the na- 
tion" and to the Deanocratic and Re- 
publican national conventions, but he 
gave no details about his specific plans. 

Most of the demonstrators who had 
come to Washington in May to join in 
the campaign have left the City. E.x- 
cept for peaceful Sunday marches, 
chiefly by white sympathizers, the cam- 
paign's demonstrations stopped a few 
days after Abernathy was jailed and 
the demonstrators' hut village. Resur- 
rection City, was torn down by gov- 
ernment workers. 

Gun Laws Help 
Reduce Murder Rate 

Although the United States leads at 
least 14 other nations in the rate of 
murders committed with firearons, fed- 
eral figures show that the percentage of 
murders comnutted with guns varies 
widely within the nation — generally the 
lowest in states with some form of gun 
control laws. 

President Johnson cited the compari- 
sons with 14 other nations recently 
when he called for congressional ap- 
proval of a national plan for gun regis- 
tration. The proposal would require re- 
gistration of all firearms to start six 
months after enactment. 

Although primary responsibility for 
registration would rest with the states, 
the federal government would take over 
registration in any state whose stand- 
ards do .not meet those set up by Con- 

The President, in his message to 
Congress, said the United States is 
"without the gun control laws that oth- 
er nations accept as an elementary need 
and condition of life." 

He noted that the United States rank- 
ed last among 15 nations with a rate 
of 2.7 gun murders per 100,000 popula-

A Case Of Genocide 

There is a small war being fought in 
Biafra, the eastern region of Nigeria. 
Like most wars it is senseless. Unnec- 
essary. But it is unique in its own hor- 
rible way. 

The people of Biafra are starving, 
at the rate of 200 to 300 every day. 
Red Cross Officials expect it will climb 
to 1000 a day by the end of the month. 

Some people say that the war is over 
a question of territoriail rights — a dis- 
agreement between the people of Bia- 
fra and Nigeria. But really dt is a ques- 
tion of genocide. 

Nigeria has cut the Biafrians off with- 
out food and while a few nations have 
managed to send some supplies a sense- 
less squabble is taking place in the 
United Nations as to what cam be done 
and by whom. The kind of squabble that 
takes place when nobody really cares 
about life and diplomatic maneuverings 
are more important than helpless starv- 
"■ing children. 

The following is an excerpt from an 
eyewitness account of the conditions in 
Biaf ria written by members of the North 
American Newspaper Alliance: 

In the town square a thousand people 
languish in silence, motionless. Even the 
battle that had raged around them did 
not stir them. They are watching them- 
selves die of starvation. It is too late to 
save them now. 

But for sheer obscenity there is the 
place around the comer, the place of 
the vultiu^s. It used to be the local 
prison, but it is shell -shattered and the 
prisoners have long escaped. Now it is 
called a "relief center" for refugees — 
but death is the only relief. 

We found it to be hell on earth. Out- 
side, we thought at first there were 
children sleeping by the walls. But 
when we went close we found adl were 
corpses, swollen in the heat, yellow- 
faced, beginning to decompose. They 


This compared with rates of .03 per 
hundred thousand population in The 
Netherlands; Japan .04; England .05 
Wales .05; West Germany .02; Italy .70 
Canada .52; Belgium .26; Australia 1.56. 
Denmark 1.3; France 1.3; New Zealand 
.17; Scotland .06 and Sweden .11. 

Recent figures for individual states 
show that those with some form of gun 
control laws generally have lower per- 
centages of murders by firearms than 
states that have no such laws. 

According to figures from the Uni- 
form Crime Reports compiled by the 
FBI, 56.9 per cent of all murders in this 
country during the l%2-66 period were 
committed with a firearm. Yet, the 
Northeastern states during this same 
period had an average of 37.3 p)er cent 
gun deaths. 

This relatively low percentage is cre- 
dited to the fact that Massachusetts, 

had been dumi)ed out there because in- 
side they die too fast for burial. 

At the gateway we met the deputy 
warden, a plump, baMed little man. The 
hallway was crowded with living skele- 
tons. "For God's sake, man, do some- 
thing for these people," we said. He 
shrugged his shoulders. "There is noth- 
ing here," he answered. "No food, no 
medical supplies. Nothing." 

Fighting down the sickness in our 
stomachs, we wailked through the prison 
yard. Nothing seemed to stir save the 
vultures. Empty food bowls lay ignored 
on the ground, surrounded by a clutter 
of bone-thin limbs and distended bellies. 
Only an occasional whimper broke the 

Some mothers clutched their babies 
to their breasts. But the breasts had 
nothing to give. In one dark, stinking 
corner a skeleton ohOd of about six 
cradled her infant sister. Like a mother, 
making croaking noises through cracked 
lips, she hugged the baby a little closer 
as we approached. 

Wherever we have stopped, fear- 
stricken villagers have told of unspeak- 
able atrocities. We found one shattered 
church where, we were assured, 200 peo- 
ple kneeling in praper had been mas- 
sacred on a Sunday morning. In an- 
other village, we were told how 45 peo- 
ple, with hamds tied behind their backs, 
were thrown alive into a well. "They 
threw in so many," one villager said, 
"that the water in the end overflowed." 

The shameful fact is that this is ^e 
greatest human tragedy since the last 
world war, but a tragedy played out 
without a world audience to weep — or 
act. For it is not onlly in the breakaway 
state of Biafra that hundreds of thous- 
ands — perhaps millions — are threatened 
by death from starvation or disease. It 
is just the same in Nigeria. 

New Jersey, New York and Rhode Is- 
land all have gun control laws.

Curriculum Revision 

in the 

College of Arts & Sciences 

By Richard W. Storx 

The undeniably fundamental and widespread changes 
throughout American society that are so insistently pres- 
suring college and university curriculum revision seem to 
be much more widely cited than understood. For quite 
some time there has been no paucity of allusions to these 
monumental transformations of our society; but until this 
Spring there has not been any single study of just exactly 
what these changes have been that are forcing such a need 
for the revision of the later 20th century undergraduate 
curriculum. Such a needed study is now at hand, it seems; 
and what it has to say of the revolution that has crossed 
contemporary American education stands as an absolutely 
essential prologue to any efforts at curriculum revision at 
the University of Massachusetts. 

It seems unmistakably clear that a concise and com- 
plete statement of the shape of the problem is a neces- 
sity before undertaking changes. Christopher Jencks and 
David Riesman, in The Academic Revoiation, tell more, 
and with more insight, about the great diversity and end- 
less intricacies of American higher education than any 
other study to date; and the essentials of the situation 
which they find and describe can be traced to major 
changes of the past few decades. These particular changes, 
then, are those which it seems so important to me to 
have aired and understood on this campus before the Aca- 
demic Affairs Committee begins its Fall deliberations on 
the Arts and Sciences curriculum. My notes here will fol- 
low very closely the opening statements of Jencks and 

The very basic change which seems to be responsible 
for the transformation of American education is that of 
the development and growth of meritocractic institutions. 
This one phenomenon has manifestations which crop up 
in different parts of the current picture: but in brief, this 
one development does seem to be the fundamental spark 

which has wrought sucli varied changes across the face of 
all that was once so set and familiar. The establishment of 
overarching national institutions, with the allied concen 
tration of the control of more and more in the hands of a 
few large corporations, businesses and so forth has brought 
a measure of professionalization to areas formerly free of 
such organization. We see very clearly — as the chronicling 
of so many present writers bears witness— the formation 
of established institutions in many areas of activity. (Note 
that we say 'established institutions', not 'an Establish- 
ment'. Jencks and Riesman make a subtle but vital dis 
tinction on this point which bears preserving.) These mat 
ters of meritocratic institutions and professionalization wiU 
be the heart of the business to which these notes here will 
bring us later. The at present incomplete, but yet still 
continuing, triumph of meritocratic institutions brings a 
clear and rapid spread of upper middle class aspirations 
and style. This ethic, and the institutions which encourage 
it, are growing stronger, not weaker, they feel. 

Much more directly to the point of our concern here, 
however, is the particular phenomenon of the rise of the 
university in later 19th century America. True enough, 
colleges of every conceivable variety existed in colonial 
America (and aspects of the early history of these hun- 
dreds of colleges occupy many pages of Jencks and Ries- 
man); but the particular development of the university, 
of which Johns Hopkins is the prototype, is our especial 
concern here and now. This growth had many conse- 
quences, a principal one being the professionalization of 
the proto-scholarly disciplines and areas of study. 

Since the 1890's. "College instructors have become less 
preoccupied with educating young people, more and more 
preoccupied with educating one another by doing scholariy 
research which advances their discipline. Undergraduate 
education has become less and less a terminal enterprise. 



Th« StotcsmoB 

more and more a preparation for graduate school." The 
era of the turn of the century saw the birth and accept 
ance of graduate study as an important activity in state 
universities, the founding of learned societies and jour 
nals, and the separation of major departments as dis- 
tinct categories. By the second Worid War two dozen 
major universities had emerged, all remarkably similar 
covered and how it was to be taught. (A remarkably 
similar phenomenon is to be noted in the histories of the 
several natural sciences, in what one recent student of 
in what they encouraged ana valued, producing Ph.D.'s 
holding remarkably uniform ideas on what a discipline 
their development has called "paradigm formation and 
articulation. " This development and acceptance of a uni- 
form idea of an area's content and approach is seen to be 
an absolutely fundamental and vital necessity for the 
area's advancement and flowering. The parallels with the 
educational developments under discussion here are too 
striking to let pass as mere coincidence. They deserve 
further study as regards these patterns of similarity.) 

The emergence, then, of relatively uniform training 
and of mechanisms for remaining uniform (like regional 
and annual meetings of the association) were crucial to 
the development of these overarching national meritocra- 
tic graduate .schools. "The result i'svthat a large number 
of Ph.D.s now regard themselves almost as independent 
professionals like doctors or lawyers, responsible pri- 
marily to themselves and their colleagues rather than 
their employers, and committed to the advancement of 
knowledge rather than of any particular institution." 

Overall, the major universities, and particularly their 
graduate professional schools — 'graduate professional 
schools' meaning all varieties of graduate level schools, 
now professionalized in the sense above — have become 
pacesetters in the universalistic promotion of meritocratic 
values, increasingly ignoring the more particularistic con- 
cerns—choosing and promoting faculty almost entirely on 
the basis of their scholarly output and professional re- 
putation. Graduate students too are increasingly selected 
on the basis of their ability to do the "professional" grad- 
uate work by their ability to write good examinations and 
papers; while the once important claims of localism, sec- 
tarianism, class background, age. sex. and even occupa 
tional plans are increasingly ignored. 

The larger history of developments in and of the uni- 
versities themselves had. initially at least, relatively lit- 
tle impact upon strictly undergraduate education. From 
the turn of the century through the mid-1950's, undergrad- 
uate education continued pretty much in its familiar his- 
toric path, feeling only unexceptional growing pains. 
Through the '20's and '30's enrollment did begin to climb, 
and the percentage going on to graduate school climbed 
slowly with this increasing enrollment. But there were 
pressures abroad in the land— pressures upon the most 
provincial of the colleges in particular, as they came to 
employ more and more of the newer breed of profes- 
sionally trained faculty fresh from the emerging univer- 
salistic and meritocratic graduate schools. The pressure 
was upon these colleges to conform and liberalize or 
close their doors. 

By the late 1950's the effects of the academic revolu 
tion were clearly and unmi.stakably felt at the undergrad- 

uate level. Enrollment had risen to the point of requiring 
colleges to select much more strictly— meritocratic prin- 
ciples gained acceptance under the pressure of a meri- 
tocratically-oriented faculty. "As a result, the leading 
undergraduate colleges, both public and private, began 
demanding higher academic aptitude and more proof of 
academic motivation from their entrants." This era saw 
a sharp rise in the number (and percentage) of students 
who wanted to go on to careers requiring graduate de- 
grees; and this desire for graduate education gave the 
faculty the opening it needed to enter the wedge of meri- 
tocratic principles, requiring more than *C' work of stu- 
dents—the threat of non-admission to the good graduate 

''College instructors have become less

schools became a terrifying Damoclean sword over the 
heads of more and more undergraduates. A nationwide 
PR effort produced a change in the picture of graduate 
schools— the best jobs were increasingly seen as going to 
the best performers (presumably the most intelligent) 
among graduate-degree holders. 

The fruition of this change was the birth of what has 
been called the "university college" — a college whose pri- 
mary purpose is to prepare students, as de facto prep 
schools, for graduate work of some sort at a major pro- 
fessional graduate school. A university college may be 
the undergraduate unit of a larger university (as is Ckrf- 
umbia College), or it may be a separate and autonomous 
college (as is Amherst College)— in either case the net 
result is the same. If separate, the university college 
draws its faculty from the same pool as the affiliated uni- 
versity college (which may share a faculty with the grad- 
uate school of the parent university). "The university c<rf- 
lege is the fruition of the academic revolution at the un- 
dergraduate level." This development has had profound 

July 17, 1968 

and far-reaching effects upon the roughly 1900 lesser col 
leges which are striving to emulate the top 100 or so uni- 
versity colleges around the country. Changes have been 
wrought in public and private colleges, both those that are 
expressly terminal and those which do not consider them- 
selves as terminal. The result is convergence of aims, 
methods and probably of results too. 

The manifestations and consequences of this academic 
revolution on the undergraduate front are many and 
varied. One of the most immediate should be implicit in 
all that we have said thus far: the introduction of a pro- 
fessionally trained and oriented faculty to the undergrad- 
uate colleges brings an irresistable pressure for earlier 
and more explicitly professional training for undergrad- 
uates. The new breed of faculty is less concerned with 
broad liberal education and more concerned with locating 
and identifying promising professional candidates among 
the undergraduate student body. These candidates, once 
caught by the department, are introduced earlier and more 
fully to the rigors of the discipline, as overt preparation 
for a graduate professional career. 

Daniel Bell has studied in quite some detail the trials 
and tribulations of revision and reform that have wracked 
the pioneering general education programs at Chicago, 
Columbia and Harvard. Without being expressly aware 
of it, he has chronicled perfectly the demise of general 
education in the face of the mounting pressure of the pro- 
fessional faculty for earlier pre-professional work. If the 
analysis which Jencks and Riesman make has any truth 

The College is faced with a 
Crucial question; atid the time is 

exactly ripe for its definitive answer. 

to it, as it well seems to, such a transformation of gen- 
eral education was inevitable in the face of the academic 
revolution. Note quite so clear a manifestation of the aca 
demic revolution is to be seen in some recent changes on 
this particular campus: the elimination of some of the 
required core curriculum in favor of multiply specified 
requirements is a device ideal for giving individual de 
partments the fflexibility to introduce professionally re- 
lated courses much earlier into the undergraduate's cur- 
riculum. A strong measure of covert faculty control over 
increasingly numerous areas of university policy and 
practice is to be expected as a consequence of the aca- 
demic revolution. 

Clark Kerr has studied and described some aspects 
and measures in this direction; and Jencks and Riesman 
see further examples of this, as the hold of the profes- 
sionals of the academic revolution gains increasing sway 
on university and coUege affairs. Overall, however, our 

concern here and through this coming Fall will have to 
be on specifically undergraduate-curriculum aspects of 
the academic revolution. 

The plan of action which lies before the College of Arts 
and Sciences and the Academic Affairs Committee, al- 
though involving several distinct steps, is reasonably clear 
and straightforward. It involves, first, a recognition by all 
parties concerned of the state of affairs in American un- 
dergraduate (and graduate) education in 1968. It in- 
volves, secondly, a placing of the College here in the con- 
text of the expanding academic revolution. It involves, 
thirdly, a major discussion and resolution of the question 
of whether the College wants to commit itself completely 
to the university college model. The answer to this latter 
policy question will determine the direction that the cur- 
riculum must take for some years to come. 

The College can attempt to study the history of gen 
eral education movements across this country over the 
past 30 years or so, hoping to avoid some of the pitfalls 
which Bell discusses, and work for the creation erf a more 
completely and overtly general education curriculum, or 
it can elect to plunge with both feet into the university 
college model, with all of the professional orientation and 
revision of the present curriculum that such a move would 
entail. The answers to this three-part question are not, 
despite some indications to the contrary, yet fixed or de- 
termined. The College is faced with a crucial question; and 
the time is exactly ripe for its definitive answer. The 
moves at curriculum revision spawned by the Cook Com- 
mittee Report have been criticized by several elements of 
the community already for their disappointing superfi- 
ciality. They do not now seem to fit anywhere within the 
context of problems that we have been considering here: 
some changes have already been made in graduation re- 
quirements, but they do not for a moment, as was made 
clear at the time of their acceptance, necessarily bind 
the College to the rest of the Cook Committee's recom- 
mendations, nor do they preclude further differently -di- 
rected revisions. 

These notes, then, have been an attempt to set forth 
and delineate some of the most particularly relevant and 
pressing changes in contemporary society that seem to 
be at least partly responsible for the insistent pressure 
for change that we see so often cited in the popular and 
academic press. They are not, of course, the complete 
and definitive study of where it's all at. or of what needs 
to be done to or with this or any other college today. It, 
however, they serve to spark something of a new or re- 
directed chain of thought in the minds of those most di- 
rectly concerned, then they will have more than served 
their purpose.

Looking Askance 

At the Week 

In Sports 


The Statesman 

Slow Death 

Now that the whiff-whiff, zip-zip pro- 
ceedings are over in Houston, major 
league baseball has returned to its 
normal whiff- whiff, zip-zip schedule. The 
Red Sox have won three of their last 
four games which combined with their 
win streak before the All-Star break 
soared the spirits of Bostonians to dizzy- 
ing heights. 

But the baseball played in Anaheim 
seemed more like Little League stuff 
than major league playing. If Yaz was 
trying to atone for his ninth-inning strike*^ 
out in the AU-Star game, assuagement 
was not to be found. 

For the Red Sox to come close to the 
pennant this .season, the team will have 
to become once again Houdini, Inc. The 
Sox will have to win at least 50 of their 
remaining 82 games, but Detroit can 
lose 41 of the 79 games remaining on 
their schedule and still do better per- 
centage-wise than the Sox did last year. 

The undertakers who are planning to 
hold their national convention in Detroit 
in early October would do better to 
move it to Boston. There should be a 
great wake for the Red Sox and plenty 
of rooms in the hotels. 

Wilt The Tilt 

While the sports world eagerly girds 
itself for the expected psychological war 
between Wilt Chamberlain and Los 
Angeles Coach Bill von Breda Kolff. the 
greatest scorer in the history of basket- 
ball has been called "a super duper" by 
suave Sports Dlustrted (and Emascu- 

The Bible of duck-hunters and venison 
gourmets everywhere bases the accusa- 
tion on the following simplistic data: 1) 
Genuine superstars are never traded, i.e. 
Russell, Robertson. Baylor. Unitas, Starr. 
Jimmy Brown. Mantle. Mays. Williams; 
2) In first trade. Chamberlain was worth 
only Paul Neumann: .3) This time . . . 
essentially Archie Clark; 4) Russell 
was worth a whole team when he was 31. 
as' was Robertson or Baylor; and 5) The 
recent deal did not net a bundle of cash 
as was expected. 

While it may be true that the trium- 
virate of Chamberlain. West and Baylor 
may fizzle like Augu.stus Caesar. Lepidus 
and Brutus if Wilt enters the dog-house 
at the same time as injury-prone West 
and Baylor enter the hospital, the Lakers 
could on the other hand devastate the 
NBA for several years. Nevertheless, 
Snorts Illustrated 's comment implies that 
Chamberlain actively epitomizes the 
phoniness of big-time wrestling and the 

July 17. 1968 

roller derby combined. Strictly Madison 

So Chamberlain, who has been duping 
the ball into the hole and his foes into 
intimidation for years, stands accused 
of trying to profit as much as he can 
from owners who except for the Irv 
Kosloff of 1968 have certainly been will- 
ing to meet his desires. Shame on him. 

500 Miles 

Henry Aaron of the Atlanta Braves 
became Henry VIII when he ascended 
his throne Sunday by becoming only the 
eighth man to hit 500 home runs in his 
career. Although batting only .250, Aaron 
is rated tops in more than just alphabeti- 
cal listing, and he has earned an even 
bigger chance at baseball immortality. 

Figuring that he is good for 35 home 
runs this season, if he hits 33 in each of 
the next five seasons to tie the record 
and 23 in the sixth, he would have 715. 
one more than the Ruth milestone. 

Speaking of Ruth. Roger Maris who 
hit 61 homers back for the Yankees in 
'61 has decided to call it quits at the 
end of the season. After '62, it must be 
said for history's sake. Maris stranded 
men on base like the '66 Red Sox. 

He is leaving the baseball ranks to 
manage his brewery in Florida, with 
the blessings of St. Louis owner Gussie 
Busch. who of course knows a good beer- 
brewer when he sees one. 

Gridiron-clad Case 

Defenders of the athletic scholarship 
system point their hawkish talons at the 
fact that potential scholarship winners 
are required to give proof of their sorry 
financial plight. College athletes are not 
"professionals." they say, but needy 
youngsters who are deprived of part- 
time employment and normal study time 
because of their sports. A student-athlete 
in need is friend indeed. So it's all just 
one happy war on poverty. 

Now. this philosophy overlooks three 
considerations: 1) For every athletic 
scholarship winner, there is a non-ath- 
letic B-plus student somewhere who is 
sweatmg his dungarees off paying his 
way through school; 2) College athletes 
receive extensive tutoring and often rely 
on the academic lobby formed by coach- 
es, in addition to receiving slush funds 
and residuals, a la amateur tennis play- 
ers who say they cannot afford to turn 
pro; 3) Athletic scholarships are strictly 
quid pro quo affairs since colleges can 
and do cut off the money when the ath- 
lete runs out of eligibility or quits the 
team or breaks a leg or performs below 

Homerun mileetoiie. 

Or gets married, as in the case erf Jim 
Carey, a flanker for Florida State. Carey, 
an honor student in pre-med but. gosh, 
a sixth-stringer, was frisked of his schol- 
arship after his clandestine wedding 
last year. He is now suing Florida re- 
gents for the equivalent of a year's schc^- 
arship in what is believed the first legal 
case ever questioning the right of a 
school to take away an athletic scholar- 
ship as it sees fit. 

FSU Coach Bill Peterson told him. 
"If you had to get married, it might 
have been a different story." Carey may 
need Louis Nizer and Edward Bennett 
Williams to bring the football establish- 
ment to its knees in court. But the court- 
room observer will learn more than the 
fan sitting on the 50-yard-line. 

De Senectute 

Simultaneous peace negotiations were 
going on in Paris and New York. When 
the New York negotiators emerged say- 
ing. "It's an historic and very progres- 
sive agreement." and a "tremendous 
step forward." Cyrus Vance and Averill 
Harriman should have turned green. The 
New York men were talking about noth- 
ing more, or less, depending on your 
point of view, than the new contract 
reached between the American Football 
League players and owners. 

The new raise in pension in the Amer- 
ican League only put pressure on the 
National League owners to come to .some 
accord with their players, as the leagues 
prepare for the 1970 merger. A 10-year 
man at age 65 will draw a pension of 
$1,132 instead of $775 a month in the 
American League. 

The National League promptly in- 
creased its pension for the 10-year vet- 
erans from $775 to $1,600, averting a 
threatened strike. Maybe now the AFL 
will be the dominant force in pro foot- 
ball, on the playing field as well as the 
conference table. And maybe the nego- 
tiations in Paris will end next week. 

Finally, the NFL players appeared as

The Crew Club: 

How Long Can the Athletic Department 

Ignore It? 

Varsity sports at UMass are a funny 
thing. They are funny not in the hu- 
morous connotation of the word, but 
in the sense that they are odd. What 
other schools the size of UMass can 
boast of not having a hockey rink or 
a track, although there are teams 
competing in both sports. And how a- 
bout the baseball field complete with 
a smell reminiscent of the days when 
this place used to be called Mass. Ag- 
ricultural School? Also, lest you have 
forgotten, there is the Cage. That's 
the place where everything has a 
purplish cast, and hoop practice was 
rained out once. 

Each sport has its own particular 
set of trials and tribulations indige- 
nous to it, but crew has the best one 
of all. One can't complain that there 
isn't a place to hold the races. Na- 
ture took care of that by creating the 
Connecticut River. Some man was 
kind enough to build Mitch's Marina 
in West Hadley near the Calvin Coo- 
lidge Bridge; and although it was 
constructed with the local habitants 
in mind, it's a nice place to have a 
boat house and to hold a regatta. The 
crew club also has three shells com- 
plete with oars. 

Just A Club 

So what's so funny about that? 
Well, the crew club is just that; it's a 
club not a team. The Athletic De- 
partment is withholding official sanc- 
tion from the club as if it were the 

By Jan Curley 

terrestrial equivalent of sainthood. 
It's pretty hard to do this when there 
are 27 rowers, three spares and two 
coaches who practice four hours sev- 
en days a week regardless of the 
weather and race Saturday after - 
noons. But that's how it's been since 

Previous to this date there had not 
been a crew team at UMass since 
1872, at which time the boat was re- 
tired. The team had won the champ- 
ionship the year before against such 
Ivy League powei-s as Brown and 

Crew was very different in those 
days. The coach was paid, and the 
rowers were recruited. Things were 
rougher, too. 

When crew was reorganized in 1965 
it was through the mutual efforts of 
a group of young men who w£uited 
mora than just some rowing fun Sun- 
day afternoons and a former BU 
rower who was willing to become 
their coach. He made crew what it is 
today, a hard working, competitive, 
bone-aching sport. 

You doir't get a seat because you 
learned how to row at summer camp. 
You have to work out during the 
winter in the basement of Mem Hall 
on the rowing machine and the 
weights. You have to be ahle to run 
the Tower. 21 flights of stairs up and 
down. Then if you weigh enough, and 
you're still alive, you might earn a 
seat. That's half the battle; you have 

to be able to keep up the pace to 
keep your seat, or you'll be bumped. 

Too Much Money 

At the time of its reinception, it 
was understood that crew would have 
to remain an R.S.O. for three years. 
During this {)eriod, crew was to be 
subsidized by the Student Senate. Be- 
ing an R.S.O. Ls a problem in itself. 
Springtime is synonymous with bud- 
get time. 

All monetary requests for the next 
season must be included in the bud- 
got. Anyone who has to bring a bud- 
get on the fl(X)r of the Senate knows 
what a hassle that can bo. But Dave 
riarke and Mike Faherty, the var- 
>ity and freshman coaches respect- 
ively, have done it before. Could you 
see Vic Fusia on the floor at 3 a.m. 
haggling over the price of footballs? 

To Warren P. McGuirk crew is a 
hands-off projxwition of the 
money involved in financing it. Mc- 
Guirk claims it is a $50,000 operation, 
and in a recent interview Dr. Lederle 
stated crew would cost $60,000. Those 
figures are based on such college 
crews {IS Harvard, Cornell and Yale, 
and it must be considered that their 
outlay involves a groat deal more 
than the one here. Harvard, for in- 
stance, has a crew five to six times 
that of UMass' and they naturally 
have more shells and boathouscs, and 
some of their rowers are also on schol 
arships. The crew program here has 


Th* StatAamoEB 

developed to the stage where little re- 
mains to be done as far as buying 
equipment goes. The only way crew 
could fail now would be through a 
lack of cooperation from the Athletic 

The budget for crews OMnparable to 
UMass' run in the $10,000 range. The 
Student Senate appropriated the U- 
Mass crew less than $6,000 last 

Rowing Alumni 

Crew is a sport largely supported 
through a rowing alumni. Since there 
hasn't been a crew for almost 100 
years, it would be a little difficult to 
solicit any of them. There should be a 
rowing alumni within five years, but, 
in the meantime, some people inter- 
ested in bringing rowing back to U- 
Mass have made contributions. A re- 
cent donation was used to buy a 
trailer to transport the shells to the 
regattas. The rowers assembled it 
during spring vacation in their spare 
time when they weren't chopping the 
ice on the river in order to practice. 

All students at UMass are forced to 
contribute to the support of the ath- 
letic teams through a mandatory 
payment of an athletic fee as part of 
their semester bill. You get a foot- 
ball ticket booklet in your packet as 
automatically as you get your course 
schedule. The student, although he 
pays for- these tickets, is not legally 
able to give them away or to sell 
them. Have you ever wondered what 
the football players do with theirs? 

McGuirk has stated before that the 
Athletic Department exists to bring 
programs to the students in which 
they are interested. When Clarke was 
reorganizing the crew club, he was 
told that there would have to be a 
demonstration of interest in rowing. 
The boys who have tried out for crew 
have shown that they are interested 
in the program. Those who are for- 
tunate enough to make the club have 
been willing to stick with it even 
though they knew they would receive 
no recognition. For the past three 
years, they were not even given amy 
physical education credit even though 
the band members were getting it for 
their extra-curricular activity. 

The interest is not all one sided. 

The interest does not exist only in 
those in the club, but also with the 
loyal band of fans who get to South 
Hadley for the races even if they 
have to hitch. All you have to do is 
attend a race or practice to find this 
out for yourself. 

In addition to varsity and freshman 
crews, there is also a junior varsity 
crew which competes intercollegiate- 
ly. McGuirk wants to build up other 
Jayvee sports before crew. But sup 
pose they have a junior varsity base- 
ball team, against whom are they go- 
ing to compete? There isn't another 
school in the Yankee Conference with 
a junior varsity team. 

Recognition for An Entity 

In order for a sport to receive var- 
Kty recognition, they must measure 
up to some criteria. McGuirk has cit- 
ed four things to Clarke and Faherty. 

First is the fact that there is a 
lack of control over the members. If 
by this is meant that the rowers are 
not supervised, what are the two 
coaches doing there every day? ITiey 
take attendance, which is mandatory 
under penalty of losing your seat, and 
they are on the river coaching the 
practice from the launches. 

Secondly is a turnover rate, but a 
check of the attendance sheets will 
prove that the members are regular. 
Next year at least 17 will be return- 
ing from this year's squad. A third 
reason mentioned is a lack of faculty 
participation. Crew has two advisors 
because it is an R.S.O. Granted the 
coaches aren't recognized members of 
the coadiing staff at Boyden. but it is 

up to McGuirk to hire a certified 

Somewhat related to this is the 
statement that there was no qualified 
physical education teadier conducting 
the practices in order that physical 
education credit be given. For this 
reason, the Phys Ed credit was with- 
held. After a three year harangue, 
McGuirk has seen fit to grant the 
credit for part of the year. 

Perhaps the Athletic Department 
won't recognize crew because it was 
begun by a group of boys and not 
some member of the department. 
Perhaps the Athletic Department has 
a reason which they are not making 
public. Regardless of the reasons, 
crew is an entity which deserves

Rockefeller's Chances Are Getting Better 

"Rockefeller cihances are getting bet- 
ter and better every day. I agree that he 
will win it on the fourth ballot." Expres- 
sing his belief that New York Governor 
Nelson A. Rockefeller will be the Re- 
publican nominee this fall, was Alan 
Shaler of Eastlhannpton after he was 
named Hamipshire County chairman of 
the Rockefeller for President committee. 

Shaler outlined what he believes will 
occur at the Republican convention dur- 
ing the first week of August in Miami. 
On the first ballot Nixon will lead but 
will fall short of the necessary number 
of votes for nomination he said. The sec- 
ond ballot will see the former vice presi- 
dent still in the lead, but his strength 
beginning to weaken. Nixon will continue 
to weaken on the third baUot and then 
Rockefeller will win a landslide victory 
on the fourth ballot. Shaler said that 
Rockefeller will get the nomination be- 
cause "a lot of Republicans deep in their 
hearts would like to win for a change." 

The Easthampton republican said that 
California Gk>vernor Ronald Reagan will 
play a very important role at the conven- 
tion whether he announces he is running 
for President or not. According to Shaler. 
Reagan and Nixon haven't gotten along 
with each other for a long time. "He's 
campaigned against Nixon for many 
many years. He'll siphon off votes that 
Nixon might have received on the first 

When asked whether or not he thinks 
Reagan will formally announce his can- 
didacy. Shaler said, "I couldn't predict 

By Donald A. Epstein 

that. I don't think anybody knows. He's 
such an unpredictable person. If he did 
announce it would help Rockefeller." 

"I wouldn't be surprised to see others 
enter the picture for the nomination in 
the next few weeks." he said. "Nixon's 
polls keep going down. down, and down. 
I wonder if he would get any votes be- 
sides his and Pat's." 

Shaler thinks that in the next few 
weeks some key people will jump on 
Rockefeller's bandwagon. He said that 
Florida governor Kirk's recent endorse- 
ment of the New York Governor was an 
example of what's to come. 

Asked to comment on Nixon's recent 
silence since the primaries Shaler said. 
"Maybe it's good for him. every time he 
has opened his mouth he's lost a couple 
of thousand votes." 

Since the primaries Rockefeller has 
proposed original and possible solutions, 
according to Shaler. "For example the 
4 point plan for ending the Vietnam 
war. It is a solution which most people 
woud admire. It makes more sense than 
McCarthy's negativism." 

Shaler said that even though Governor 
Volpe has publicly endorsed Richard 
Nixon, "it's just unthinkable that any 
votes from the Massachusetts delegation 
could go to anyone else other than 
Rockefeller after his upset victory in the 
Massachusetts primary" Shaler feels 
that the party should pay more attention 
to the public opinion polls. He said that 
Ray Bliss's refusal to have the party 
sponsor an opinion poll is "a sign of the

er, who pushes a baby cairiage filled 
with books to the stage and, after chat- 
ting about life in the ghetto and human 


nature in general, becomes the intro- 
ducer and conimentator on the three 
plays of the program. 

"A Tale of Ohelm" is a humorous 
country anecdote about a village teach- 
er who is hoodwinked into bringing 
home a billygoat after his wife has 
sent him to buy a milking goat. The 
confusion multiplies because the whole 
village is populated with fools— even to 
the rabbi who is called upon to settle 
the matter. 

"Bontche Schweig," the second play, 
is a capsule-«ized saga of a tattered old 
man from the ghetto who has endured 
every hardship of life, every loss— and 
yet has never raised his voice in protest. 
His gentle forebearance is so moving 
that, when summoned before the tri- 

bankruptcy of the leadership of all poli- 
tical parties." 

Commenting on Volpe 's endorsement 
of Nixon. Shaler said that "John isn't 
going to run for reelection next time 
around and he wants to be the vice presi- ^ 
dent. Volpe would be a good running ^ 
mate for Nixon." He said that it's pos- 
sible that on the second ballot some of 
the delegates from Massachusetts would 
follow the governor and vote for Nixon. 
However, he pointed out that Sen. Brooke 
is very much for the New York Governor. 

Finally, when asked about a possible 
new party forming after the two con- 
ventions, headed by either Rockefeller. 
McCarthy or Lindsey if Nixon and Hum- 
phrey are the candidates. Shaler said 
that "any combination of those men 
would take the whole election and we 
would then see the complete collapse of 
the present party structures." 

Shaler said that as a result of "Cam- 
paign 68 "more and more you are going 
to have an adequate use of presidential 
preference primaries and polling. The 
two candidates who will be running in 
November will in the future each have 
about 49 percent of the vote and each 
man will be number 1 in his party."

bunal of heaven, even the angels are 
abashed at his goodness and simplicity. 

The main piece of the evening (and 
the only one taken from the actual 
writings of Sholom Aleichem) is "The 
High School," a concise dramatization 
which tells with bittersweet drollery the 
pathos of a mother's determined prod- 
ding of her reluctant husband to use 
bribery, cajolery and every other pos- 
sible means to get their promisingly 
bright son into the non-religious high 
school, over the hurdles of an ultra- '^ 
restrictive quota system. ^ 

The World of Sholom Aleichem will 
join The Rivals and light Up the Sky 

in repertory Wednesday through Sat- 
urday evenings at the now air-condi- 
tioned Bartlett Auditorium till August

Gary Player, wearing his trade-mark

smashing eagle on the 14th hole to win 
the British Open Golf Championship on 
the harrowing Carnoustie course in 

The final round scramble, something 
akin to the presidential race on this side 
of the Atlantic, saw Bob Charles, Jack 
Nicklaus, Billy Casper and Gary Brew- 
er fall aside, beset by wild shots anS 
ill winds. It was the first major tourna- 
ment victory for Player since he went 
into semi-retirement two years ago to

For Whom Bill Toils 

Comparing the American Basketball 
Association to the NBA is like compar- 
ing Elsa Maxwell to Raquel Welch. But 
according to former Celtic star Bill 
Sharman. the times they are a changing. 
Sharman, now an ABA coach, claims 
that the League is here to stay 
will be on par with the NBA m four 
years, but the collapse of the Old ABL 
haunts his words. He says the ABA 
owners are willing to lose shirts after 
shirts until their teams are as good as 
those in the NBA. Even league presi- 
dent George Mikan was present when 
the ABA tried unsuccessfully to lure 
Wilt Chamberlain from the NBA— to 
take over for Laveme Tart as the 
league's top drawing card.

state by virtue of certain grants. 

The suit asking for an injunction 
halting disciplinary action and prosecu- 
tion was brought by five students, a 
pastor of a church near the university, 
the president of the Harlem chapter of 
CORE, an alumnus and a college lec- 

Pointing out that the United States 
States Supreme Court has steadily held 
to the principle "that debate on public 
issues should be uninhibited, robust and 
wide-open," Judge Frankel said: 

"It has also made clear, however, the 
gross error of believing that every kind 
of conduc* (however nonverbal and phy- 
sically destructive or obstructive) must 
be treated simply as protected 'speech' 
because those engaged in it intend to 
express some view or position. 

"Similarly, the Court has rejected the 
notion that everyone with opinions or 
beliefs to express may do so at any 
time and at any place. 

"Without such inescapably necessary 
limits, the First Amendment would be 
a self-destroying license, for 'peaceful 
expression' by the seizure of the streets, 
buidings and offices by mobs, large or 
small, driven by motives (and toward 
objectives) that different viewers might 
deem 'good or bad.'" 

Juvenile Offenders 

Between 55,000 and 160,000 juvenile 
offenders "came to the attention" of 
police in Massachusetts in 1967, says a 
report just released. 

This "ball park figure and the inabili- 
ty to anake it more precise represents 
only one of the critical problems fac- 
ing state ofl^cials who try to cope with 
rising crime among juveniles in the 
common wea 1th. 

The report, by the Governor's Com- 
mittee on Law Enforcement and Ad- 
ministration of Justice, said, "Aside 
from cold statistics, there are clear in- 
dications of growing disrespect for law 
and authority and disenchantment with 
present society among today's youth." 

Harvard Prof. James Vorenberg, ex- 
ecutive director of the President's Com- 
mission on Law Enforcement and Ad- 
ministration of Justice, said in a re- 
cent speech that nearly all of the in- 
crease in crime the United States has 
experienced in the last decade has been 
in juvenile offenses. 

A partial answer to this growing pro- 
blem, says Massachusetts Attorney Gen- 
eral Elliot L. Richardson, is the imple- 
mertation of .some 30 recommendations 
made in the report. They cover the pre- 
vention of juvenile delinquency and ad- 
ministration of juvenile justice and the 
State Division of Youth Service, the 
state's correctional agency. 


A Russian John Mill 

A leading physicist who contributed 
to the development of the Soviet hy- 
drogen bomb has issued a plea for full 
intellectual freedom, Soviet-United 
States cooperation and a worldwide re- 
jection of "demagogic myths" in an ur- 
gent program to avert nuclear war and 

The 47-year-old scientist, Prof. An- 
drei D. Sakharov, in a 10,000-word es- 
say, "Thoughts About Progres.s, Peace- 
ful Co-existence and Intellectual Free- 
dom, " expressed fear that the world 
was "on the brink of disaster." The un- 
published work is circulating in Mos- 
cow in manuscript. 

Professor Sakharov, a member of the 
Academy of Sciences since 1953 urged a 
worldwide implementation of "the sci- 
enitfic methods" in poHtics, economic 
planning and management, education, 
the arts and military affairs. 

Intellectual freedom is imperative to 
achieve truth in a complex and chang- 
ing world, he declared. He denounced 
Soviet censorship policies as harmful 
restraint on free inquiry. 

The essay called for a thorough in- 
vestigation into the damaging effects of 
Stalin's decade of dictatorial rule and 
demanded that "neo-Stalinists" be oust- 
ed from positions of influence. 

Discussing foreign affairs, it con- 
demned what was termed the United 
States' "crimes against humanity" in 
the Vietnam conflict as a reflection of 
traditional policies of self-interest. But 
it also charged that the Soviet Union 
was responsible for the Israeli-Arab con- 
flict a year ago because of "iiTes^Jon- 
sible encouragement" of the Arabs. 

Marcuse Threatened 

Dr. Herbert Marcuse, professor of 
philo.sophy at the University of Califor- 
nia's San Diego campus and widely 
known as the "philosopher of the in- 
ternational new left. " has fled his home 
in San Diego after receiving a written 
threat on his life. 

FBI agents in San Diego said Wed- 
nesday they have obtained a letter dat- 
ed July 1 containing the threat and 
have begun an investigation in coop- 
eration with postal authorities. 

Dr. Marcuse received a letter post- 
marked July 1 and reportedly signed 
"The KKK" which said: 

"You are a dirty Communist dog. You 
have 72 hours to leave the United States 
or you will be killed." 

The 70-year-old professor told friends 
that he was first inclined to ignore the 
letter as a prank, but on July 3 he dis- 
covered that his telephone service had 
been discontinuetl. 

The telephone ocmpany told him an an- 
onymous person had called to order the 
service cut off and this aroused his 

CATV Bill Approved 

On urging of Rep. James R. Nolen, D- 
Ware, Wednesday, the House gave ini- 
tial approval to a bill of the Consumers 
CouncU for regulation of Community 
Antenna Television Service or CATV. 

Vote for the bUl was 129-86. Then, by 
a 129-84 vote, the bill offered to con- 
tinue city and town licensing only was 

The Noien-backed bill would have the 
cities and towns do the licensing, but 
an overall check of the rates charged 
for the service and some power to hold 
back rates considered to be excessive 
would be given to the Department of 
Public Utilities. 

Nolen said CATV is a wonderful ser- 
vice and allows some 30 communities 
in the state to enjoy good reception.

White Racism 

By Donald A. Epstein 

Calling white supremacy a basic part 
of American history and a basic part of 
our personality structure, was Frank 
Joyce, head of People Against Racism 
Monday night at the Student Union. 

Joyce said that there is an inability in 
this country to deal with basic questions. 
The Kerner Riot report mentions the 
word "racism" six times, according to 
Joyce, but doesn't really talk about it at 
all. "The Kerner report doesn't offer any 
solutions; the only new thing in it is 
that it uses the word racism instead of 
prejudice," he said. 

He criticized the report for offering 
solutions not directed to the cause. Even 
though the report mentions racism, he 
said, "every single solution is directed to 
the black community." "Racism is a 
white problem, our tendency is to some- 
how suggest it is all a Negro problem". 

Joyce believes that the entire history 
of the country is based on white supre- 
macy. It was first directed against the 
Indians, is is now directed against the 
Ncgr(x?s. He said that the belief that the 
white man is superior to the black man 

Th« Statesman 

has becofme a basic part of the white 
man personality structure in America. 

According to Joyce prejudice is when 
we think that black people are inferior 
to whites, racism is if we think that and 
want it to stay that way. 

Joyce said that the first American 
'•acist was Christopher Columbus when 
he named the Indians. "The red skinned 
}>eople did not call themselves Indians 
but Columbus did." 

"What's been lost is our own humani- 
^ ly," he said. "Whether we like it or not 
we are not given the opportunity of be- 
ing a non racist. We don't have any con- 
trol over the institutions. White supre- 
macy has become an essential part of 
our personality structure." 

The event was attended by about 100 
IX rsons. It was sponsored by the Mar- 
tin Luther King, Jr. Social Council, The 
Amherst Human Relations Council, and 
the University Sunruner Arts Committee.

By Bill Dickinson 

Visiting the New England Rally for 
God, Family ard Country is more like a 
trip through the political twilight zone. 

The rally, held annually in Boston 
over the Fourth of July weekend, is a 
gathering of right-wingers from all over 
the country. Although it is organized 
and run by the John Birch Society, the 
Birchers are reluctant to claim it as 
their offspring. And who can blame 

On the surface, the rally could he, as 
the program claims, "for Conservative 
Americans," but it's not long before 
disbelief sets in. 

For the duration of the convention, 
the lobby of the Statler-Hilton where it 
is held annually, is occupied by an army 
of middle-aged men and women who 
look as if they've never been kissed. 
Actually, from a distance they're a ra- 
ther pleasant looking bunch in their 
flowery summer dresses and baggy lin- 
en suits, although you do notice a large 
number of men wearing white socks 
with suits and dress shoes. Also, they 
don't smile much, but you figure it's 
the heat. 

Most of the rally activity takes place 
on the mezzanine ringing the lobby; it's 
crowded with booths and exhibitors 
hawking their books and leaflets. The 
atmosphere is like a carnival, except 
that instead of selling popcorn or cot- 
ton candy, they're peddling bumper 
stickers that say things like "Shoot 
Looters" and "Register Communists, 
Not Firearms." 

By the time an outsider reaches the 
top of the steps to the rally, the first 
thing that has struck him is that three 
people have popped out of various hid- 
ing places to take his picture. That's a 
little harder to understand, so you ig- 
nore it. 

The first booth you see is one man- 
ned by a couple of teenagers selling a- 
bout thirty different kinds of buttons. 
Or« says, "My God is alive, how about 
yours?" Then there's one "Sat Cong" 

which means "Kill Communists" in Viet- 
namese, according to the not-so-cute 
blond behind the counter. But the most 
popular button seems to be one with a 
B-52 and the words "Drop It!" 

There's another one that says "Im- 
peach Earl Warren." Now you figure 
it's all a put-on since he recently re- 
tired. But the blonde says, "No, it's a 
collector's item." 

You see a reporter having his picture 
taken by one of those people with cam- 
eras. All the shutterbug got was the 
back of the reporter's head. He says 
he'd be glad to pose, but the people with 
the cameras never hang around long 

The girl explains that the people tak- 
ing pictures are "our security people." 
You wonder what threat the Herald- 
Traveler poses to an^'thinf:, much less 

A booth called "The Herald of Free- 
dom" seems to be having a brisk sale of 
booklets entitled The Strange Death of 
Marilyn Monroe, so you buy a copy for 
two dollars and the fat bespectacled 
man who takes your money assures you 
that it is "most revealing." You feel 
slightly like you've just bought some 
pornography, but you reassure yourself 
that that couldn't happen at a rally "for 
Coi -servative Americans," which in- 
cludes a group called "Citizens for De- 
cent Literature." 

So you sit down and start reading. 
Then you realize that it is pornography 
— political pornography. It charges that 
the late Senator Robert Kennedy was 
deeply involved in the actress's death 
because he had been fooling around with 
her and Ethel had found out and he 
knew it could wreck his px>litical career. 

You get sick. 

Not quite believing, you go back to 
the booth to see the fat man whose 
nametag says he's Frank Cappell from 
New Jersey. You're going to get in- 
dignant. Then you notice another book- 
let, Robert Kennedy — .\ Political Bio- 
graphy published after his death. It 
falls open to a page and you read the 
part of it like) ing him to Che Guevera. 
Is this man serious? "All the facts in 
these books are true," he says. 

Past the sour old ladies with their 
Wallace buttons, past the John Birch 
Society booth, past the Christian Cru- 
sade booth, down the stairs and out 
onto the hot street. 

You take a deep breath and your 
lungs fill with sooty air. At least you 
are polluting your lungs, not your mind. 

This will be the last iuntallment of 
"Sum7)i^7- in the City". Next week Bill 
will be returning to Amherst to work 
for the Statesman in othei- capacities. 
During the school year Bill is Specials 
Editor of the Daily Collegian. Presently 
he is writing for the Boston Globe and 
the Associated Press.

to take their toll on the Selective Serv- 
ice System. 

Selective Service Director Lewis B. 
Hershey has ordered all local draft 
boards to schedule no more preinduc- 
tion physical examinations for August 
or September. The move, in effect, will 
limit the draft between now and late 
October to persons who already have 
passed their physicals, or have received 
notices to take them. 

Hershey said physical examinations 
were being temporarily halted as an 
economy measure made necessary by 
the $6 billion reduction in Federal 
spending ordered by Congress for the 
fiscal year which began July 1. Her- 
shey also rescinded the filling of va- 
cancies and promations in the Selec- 
tive Service System until further no- 

Selective Service officials say the 
suspension of physical examinations 
will have no effect on their job of sup- 
plying manpower for the military. 
They also emphasized that the "em- 
bargo may be lifted at any time." As 
long as the suspension is in effect, 
however, all draftees will be taken 
from the pool of "slightly more than 
100,000 men" who already have taken 
and passed their physicals, but have 
not yet been inducted, officials said. 

The draft call for August is only 
about 18,300, compared with a level of 
40,000 a month lAst spring. Although 
the Department of Defense has not 
ILsted the call for September, Mrs. 
Betty Vetter, executive director of the 
Scientific Manpower Commission, ex- 
pects draft calls will be relatively light 
until about January, when they will 
skyrocket unless there is a major cut- 
back in the size of the armed services 
befotv then. 

Mrs. Vetter, an expert on the effect 
of the draft on the nation's manpower 
needs, says Hershey's order suspend- 
ing physical examinations will have 
both a good and a bad effect on college 
graduates and graduate students who 
no longer have deferments. 

"Assuming the order stays in effect 
and the Selective Service System has 

to take its share of the budget out, 
this will delay the induction of many 
graduates and graduate students who 
have not taken a physical until at least 
November," Mrs. Vetter said. "It will 
allow many students to start graduate 
school and possibly get in at least one 
semester of work before being taken." 
But Mrs. Vetter also said the suspen- 
sion on physicals may reduce the num- 
ber of higii school graduates not plan- 
ning to go to college who volunteer for 
the armed services. She explained that 
many non-coUege men tend to volun- 
teer for the service when they feel the 
draft brathing down their necks after 
they are called to take a physical. 
They don't have a student deferment 
and they know they're going to have 
to go, so they volunteer for the branch 
of service they prefer. But this order 
cancels physicals for these young men 
as well as for college graduates," she 

"Every time you lose a volunteer, 
you add another draftee, " Mrs. Vetter 
said. The more the draft call is in- 
creased, then the greater the burden 
becomes on college graduates who al- 
ready have received their physicals. 

In another draft-related develop- 
ment this week, the fourth assembly 
:>f the World Council of Churches, 
meeting in Sweden, apprwed church 
support for young men who resist the 
draft. A report adopted by an over- 
whelming majority of the 720 dede- 
gates at the meeting said individuals 
should have the right to refrain from 
participation in "particular wars," such 
as the Vietnam war, on grounds of con- 

The delegates thus endorsed the prin- 
ciple of selective conscientious objec- 
tion, a catgcry which does not exist 
under present Selective Service regula- 
tions, which only permit CO exemp- 
tions for those who oppose all war out 
of religious conviction. The report said 
the principle of selective conscientious 
objection is essentially a question of 
human rights. 

The World Council of Churches has 
237 member denominations, represent- 
ing most major Prote.stant and East- 
ern Orthodox churches throughout the 


Rocky for President 

Dear Sir: 

In two weeks the Republican Conven- 
tion will meet in Miami. Florida. The 
question that looms before us is, who 
will be the nominee. Nelson Rockefeller 
or Richard Nixon. At this moment the 
Rockefeller campaign is going into full 
swing. He is drawing large and enthusi- 
astic crowds around the country, the 
polls show him ahead of all Democratic 
candidates, and a likely winner in Nov- 
ember, if he could capture the GOP 

The problem is simple — Rockefeller 
needs delegate votes. The answer is 
simple also — the delegates need to hear 
and to heed the voice of the people. This 
voice calls out for Nelson Rockefeller 
for President. It is our duty to make the 

delegates hear this call. If you would 
like to help, be in the Plymouth Room 
of the Student Union at 6:00 p.m. Thurs

work, are you?

The Law and the University 



Possession and the Law: 

Possession, distribution, or usage of Marijuana is a violation of state and federal narcotics 
laws. Such an offense is a FELONY, not a misdemeanor. Any legal action taken is serious and 
involves a permanent police record, even if the outcome is probation. 

The penalties are stiff, as Massachusetts narcotics laws are among the toughest in the 
nation. Sentences can go as high as 5 years in prison and fines can go up to $5000. Second 
offenders have no chance for a suspended sentence. 

Possession and the University: 

The University has an obligation to protect its students from health hazards Many people 
are unprepared *or marijuana and its effects, thus distribution and sales of the drug are of 
special concern to the University authorities. For this reason the University not only reports 
specific violations of narcotics laws to state and federal authorities, but it may also take inde- 
pendent action, including separation, against violators either before or AFTER court action is 

Being present while others smoke:

The Limits of Civil Disobedience 

The battle over the nomination of As- 
sociate Supreme Court Justice Abe For- 
tas to fill the shoes of the retiring Earl 
Warren continued last week as both 
Fortas and Judge Homer Thorberry, 
nominated to replace Fortas, were grill- 
ed by the Senate Judiciary Committee 
headed by Sen. James Eastland of Mis- 

The fight is political and like many 
things political it makes very little sense. 
Whether or not the nomination is ap- 
proved, Foptas will be on the Court and 
his ideas on the war, dissent, civil rights 
and the problems of liberty vs. license 
are worth knowing as they will probably 
be of major importance for the United 
States in the years to come. 

The following are excerpts from For- 
tas' book. Concerning Dissent and Civil 
Disobedience. This particular section 
deals with the limits of civil disobedience 
and dissent and appeared in a longer 
version in last Sunday's Globe. We have 
lifted it accordingly: 

In the United States, under our Consti 
tution, the question is not "may I dis- 
sent?" or "may I oppose a law or a 
government." I may dissent. I may 
criticize. I may oppose. Our Constitution 
and our courts guarantee this. 

The question is "How may I do so?" 

Each of us owes a duty of obedience 
to law. This is a moral as well as a 
legal imperative. 

So. first, we must seek to know which 
methods of protest are lawful: What are 
the means of opposition and dissent that 
are permissible under our system of 
law and which, therefore, will not sub- 
ject us to punishment by the state and 
will not violate our duty of obedience 
to law? 

There is another question. Are there 
occasions when we. with moral justifica- 
tion, may resort to methods of dissent, 
such as direct disobedience of an ordi- 
nance, even though the methods are un- 
lawful? This is the perplexing philoso- 
phical question with which I shall deal 

From our earliest history, we have in- 
sisted that each of us is and must be 
free to criticize the government, how- 
ever sharply: to express dissent and 
opposition, however brashly: even to ad- 
vocate overthrow of the government it- 
self. We have insisted upon freedom of 
speech and of the press and, as the First 
Amendment to the Constitution puts it. 
upon "the right of the people peaceably 
to assemble and to petition the Govern- 
ment for a redress of grievances." 

I say with confidence, that nowhere 
in the world— at no time in history- 
has freedom to dissent and to oppose 
governmental action been more broadly 

July 24, 1968 

safeguarded than in the United States 
of America, today. I say this even 
though I recognize that occasionally our 
officials depart from freedom's path. 

This right to dissent may be exercised 
by the use of writen and spoken words; 
by acts, such as picketing, which are 
sometimes referred to as "symbolic 
speech" because they are means of com- 
municating ideas and of reaching the 
mind and the conscience of others; and 
by "peaceable" mass assembly and 
demonstrations. Ultimately, the basic 
means of protest under our system is 
the ballot box: the right to organize and 
to join with others to elect new officials 
to enact and administer the law. 

There are limitations, however, even 
on the freedom of speech. The state may 
prescribe reasonable regulations as to 
when and where the right to harangue 
the public or to assemble a crowd may 
be exercised. But it can't use this house- 
keeping p)ower for any purpose except 
to reduce the public inconvenience which 
any large assemblage involves. 

It is not true ..hat anyone may say 
what's on his mind anytime and any- 
where. According to the famous dictum 
of Justice Holmes, no one may falsely 
cry "Fire" in a crowded theater and 
thereby cause a panic. This is so even 
though the person's action may have 
been prompted by the highest motives. 

Good motives do not excuse acti<»i 
which will injure others. The individual's 
conscience does not give him a license 
to indulge individual conviction without 
regard to the rights of others. 

The man distressed at the inadequacy 
of fire regulations may speak in the 
public square; he may print and circu- 
late phamphlets: he may organize mass 
meetings and picketing for the same 
purpose. He may denounce the city fa- 
thers as dunces, corrupt tools of the 
landlords, or potential murderers of in 
nocent people. 

He may even be able to call upon the 
courts to compel the government to act 
as he thinks it should. Eventually, he 
and others may vote the government 
out of office. 

But— and here is the point— he may 
not use means of advancing his program 
which, under the circumstances, will 
cause physical injury to others or un- 
reasonably interfere with them. 

Burning draft cards or even American 
flags has been defended as a form of 
protest. Some people say that this should 
be permitted as symbolic speech. It is 
urged that it is nothing more than a 
picturesque or dramatic form of express- 
ing protest. 

But the problem is much more diffi- 

cult than this. A punishable offense is 
not excused solely because the conduct 
is picturesque, even if its purpose (to 
protest) might be unassailable. 

If the protest involves violation of a 
valid law. the fact that it was violated 
in a "good cause" — such as to protest 
segregation or war — will not ordinarily 
excuse the violator. 

The law violation is excused only if 
that law itself is unconstitutional or in- 

The burning of draft cards, or Ameri- 
can flags involves direct vidation of law. 

The types of protests and the situa- 
tions in which they occur are of infinite 
variety, and it is impossible to formu- 
late a set of rules which will strike the 
proper balance between the competing 

But here are a few principles that in 
my opinion indicate the contours of the 
law in this subtle and complex field 
where the basic right of freedom con- 
flicts with the needs of em ordered so- 

1 — Our Constitution protests the right 
of protest and dissent within broad 
limits. It generously protects the right 
to organize people for protest and dis- 
sent. It broadly protects the right to as- 
semble, to picket, to stage "freedom 
walks" or mass demonstrations, if these 
activities are i)eaceable and if the pro- 
testors comply witli reasonable regula- 
tions designed to protect the general 
public without substantially interfering 
with effective protest. 

2 — ^If any of the rights to dissent is 
exercised with the intent to cause un- 
lawful action (a riot, or assault upon 
others) or to cause injury to the pro- 
perty of others, and if such unlawful 
action or injury occurs, the dissenter 
will not be protected. He may be ar- 
rested, and if properly charged and con- 
victed of law violation, he will not be 
rescued by the First Amendment. 

3— If the right to protest, to dissent, 
or to assemble peaceably is exercised so 
as to violate valid laws reasonably de- 
signed and administered to avoid inter- 
ference with others, the Constitution's 
guarantees will not shield the protestor. 

The Court has insisted upon freedom 
to speak and to organize, even if the 
object is ultimately subvereive. Although 
the Commvmist party is devoted to over- 
throwing the government of the United 
States by force and violence, the Su- 
preme Court has ruled that even an or- 
ganizer for that party may not be jailed 
merely for recruiting members for the 

But this obviously does not mean that

Moore to Leave UMass 

Eh". Edward C. Moore, Dean of the 
UMass Graduate School and Coordinator 
of Research, has been named vice-presi- 
dent for graduate studies and research 
and professor of pihilosophy at the State 
University of New York at Binghamton.

of philosophy and education, he has 
served as president of the Northwest 
Conference on Philosophy and President 
of the Charles S. Peirce Society. A mem- 
ber of the American Philosophical Associ- 
ation, he is listed in Who's Who in Amer- 
ica, the Dictionary of American Scholars, 
and other publications.

served as a first lieutenant in the U.S. 
Army Signal Corps. He will take up his 
new post Sept. 1. 

MacKimmie Raid Nabs 7 

Seven youths were arrested on drug 
charges in MacKimmie dorm early 
Thursday morning. 

The July 18th raid by campus police. 

was on a warrant. 

Three of the students arrested were 
regular UMass students. 

All of these arrested were hit with $200 
bail and their cases were continued un- 
til July 26 in Northampton District Court. 

Five of those arrested were charged 
with being present where drugs were 
kept. One of these was a female summer 
school student. 

Two males were charged with posses- 
sion of illegal drugs and unlawful sale 
of drugs. 

One of the male students was reported 
to have been dealing heavily in the sale 
of drugs in the Amherst area. 

Police entered the dorm with a war- 
rant for his arrest and in the process 
stumbled across a pot session at which 
the others arrested were present. 

The suspects were fingerprinted and 
photographed by Chief Blasko . 

Commenting on the arrests. Chief 
Blasko said that his men are trying to 
put a stop to drug usage on campus. 
Despite these efforts, he said, 28 stu- 
dents were arrested last year on drug 
charge,s. The Chief was not present at the 
time of Thursday's arrest. 

He noted that the administration takes 
no campus action on persons arrested 
on drug charges. 

Biafra Preliminary Dying 

Federal Nigerians and the secessionist 
Biafrans have agreed to resume peace 

talks in the Nigerian civil war and con 
sideration is being given to providing 
aid to millions of starving refuges of the 

Biafra is the eastern region of Nigeria 
which seceeded from that Federal re 
public last year. Biafra is land locked 
and surrounded by troops of the federal 
government which the Biafrans have 
been battling with for obscure reasons. 

At the height of absurdity, the Biafrans 
last week refused to permit relief sup 
plies of food and medicine for fear that 
Nigerian troops would poison the sup 
plies or sneak past their defenses behind 
the transport vehicles. Meanwhile, thou 
sands, perhaps millions of men, women 
and children were dying of starvation 
while the secessionist state and Nigeria 
argues over points of political recogni 

Following a meeting last week Biafran 
and Nigerian leaders said that supplies 
would be permitted into the country and 
that peace talks between both sides 
would resume. The Biafrans and Nige 
rians are presently in what is termed 
preliminary talks at the moment. These 
are a prerequisite for full scale peace 
parley. Diplomacy requires procedure. 
Last week thousands of Biafrans died of 
starvation. At least 300 die each day.

"High Camp" features GOLD DIG- 
GERS of 1933 with Dick Powell, Joan 
Blondell and Ginger Rogers; FOOT- 
LIGHT PARADE with James Cagney, 
Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell; and final- 
with Judy Garland and Van Johnson. 

This spectrum of film classics will be 
seen in Bartlett Auditorium on Sunday, 
Monday and Tuesday evenings, all show- 
ings at 8:30 p.m. There are no reserved 
ri seats, and the box office will be open 
30 minutes prior to each performance. 

Student Theatre 

University of Massachusetts sum- 
mer school students are entitled to 
free admission to one performance 
of each of the three plays in repertory 
at the Summer Repertory Theatre. 
Students may reserve seats by calling 
545-2006 or by visiting the box office, 
located in the lobby of Bartlett Audi- 
torium (lower level of Bartlett Hall). 

Summer student I.D. cards must 
be presented at the box office in 
order for the holder to gain his free 
admission. The card is punched for 
each admission granted, and no ad- 
mission will be granted without pre- 
sentation of the card for punching. 

All students who have paid the 
oi^ht dollar activities tax at the 
time of enrollment are entitled to the 
free admittance. 

This admission applies only to the 
three major productions. Students 
must pay the general admission fee 
of fifty cents to all Camp Film and 
Children's Theatre productions. 

SDS Exposed 

The Grand Wizzard of federal investi- 
gators. J. Edgar Hoover, said last week 
that workshops in the use of explosives 
and sabotage were conducted last month 
at the national convention of Students 
for a Democratic Society. 

In a report of the 1968 fiscal year. 
Hoover characterized SDS as the core 
of the subversive forces of the New Left 
that are undermining the American 
Dream. Hoover believes that violence 
on campus this Spring was perpetrated 
by members of the New Left. 

Hoover named no names, hinted at no 
possibilities of prosecution and did not 
explain what he meant by New Left. 


No Let Down Or Let Up 

Prior to leaving for his soujourn to 
confer with Lyndon B. Johnson on the 
state of Vietnam War. South Vietnamese 
President Nguyen Van Thieu made a 
somewhat remarkable speech on televi- 
sion in his country. 

Thicu made it clear that he was not 
going to let his people down and that 

luly 24, 1968 

he would not allow the United States to 
impose what he called a harmful solu- 
tion to the war on his people. 

"I will not go to Hawaii to surrender 
to Communists, to sell the nation, to, 
concede territory or to accept a solu- 
tion involving coalition with Commu- 
nists imposed by the United States, such 
as Communists and unscrupulous politi- 
cians have charged," Thieu said sound- 
ing like a Texas politican giving a Fourth 
of July speech. 

Our ally was also adamnant on the 
prosecution of the war: 

"As long as Communist aggression 
continues," "we will continue to fight 
with even greater effort, because we 
are determined never to accept surren- 
der to Communists or peace involving 
coalition with them." 

Earlier Secretary of Defense Clarke 
M. Clifford made some succinct com- 
ments on the war. Clifford said: 

"It would appear from the information 
that we have that although the enemy 
has sustained substantial losses, ap- 
parently they still have the capacity to 
replace those losses, and they are still 
able to provide their troops with modern 
and effective arms." he said. 

He also said, however. "There is some 
indication that the caliber and effective- 
ness of the troops might have undergone 
some diminution. 

Prof In Chatauqua 

A UMass journalism professor is con- 
ducting a workshop on "Journalism for 
Young People," July 22-26. at the famed 
Chatauqua Institution, N. Y. 

Dr. Dario Politella, associate profes- 
sor of journalistic studies, will work 
with high school and college students 
during the 95th session of what is be- 
lieved to be the oldest summer school 
in the United States. 

The four-day short course will offer 
suggestions and practice on high school 
and college newspapers and magazines. 
Discussions will deal with the column, 
the editorial, reporting and interview- 
ing. Special helps will be given in edit- 
ing, planning and making up publica- 

Currently president of the National 
Council of College Publications Advis- 
ers, Dr. Politella is also the coordinat- 
or of its Commission on the Freed<xns 
and Responsibilities of the College Stu- 
dent Press in America. He is the found- 
er and editor of The Collegiate Jour- 
naliftt, published three times a year by 
Alpha Phi Gamma, journalism honor- 
ary; and he has compiled the Directory 
of the College Student Press in Ameri- 
ca, published last fall by NOCPA. 

Besides teaching writing at UMass,

He was graduated magna cum laude 
with a B.B.A. degree in 1956 from the 
University of Ma.ssachusetts. He received 
his M.B.A. from the University of North 
Carolina in 1957. 

Politics 68 No Party Line 

Lady Fate thumbed her nose at the 
Democratic Party again last week as 
party leaders prepared for the possibility 
of having to move their convention out 
of Chicago. But the decision comes hard. 

The City of Chicago has paid the Dem- 
ocrats $800,000 to bring the convention 
to the city. On the other hand, the news 
media, especially the electronic industry 
would save millions of dollars if the 
Democrats would play follow up to the 
Republicans in Miami Beach where the 
news media has already laid their cables 

Helping to persuade the Democrats to 
hit the road was the Chicago telephone 
electricians' union which rejected a new

A Weekend Glimpse At UMass 

By Jan Curley 

Twice a week diiring the summer 
months tihe UMass campus is 
inundated by small bands of June 
graduates from high schools across 
the commonwealth. If you ever walk 
in back of any of them and eavesdrop 
on their conversation, you will be in- 
terested, probably amused. 

Their talk usually consists of re- 
counting high school achievements, 
scholastic and athletic, to their com- 
panion. They also discuss first im- 
pressions of the University, complain 
about how hot it is. or ask if it ever 
stops raining. For those who are more 
mathematically inclined, they try to 
calculate the niunber of miles which 
they have walked or figure just where 
it is they have been. 

Most of them are sporting a white 
tag with a large number on it, which 
designates their orientation group. 
These are the incoming freshmen of 
the class of 1972. 

The frosh are here for a 48 hour 
whirl-wind orientation period during 
which time they are tested, coun- 
seled, lectured to. They ask questions 
and seek answers themselves. But 
above all the program is designed to 
give the freshmen their first encoun- 
ter with the two major aspects of the 
University^social and academic. 

The freshmen arive in groups of 300 
to 350 on either Sunday or Wednesday 
night. Although most of the students 
are from Massachusetts, there are a 
few from out of state. They arrive be- 
tween 6 and 7 p.m. 

After checking into their rooms, a 
corridor meeting is held at 7:30 p.m. 
at which time the students are intro- 
duced to their counselors and are 
familiarized with the rules, curfews, 
lounge floors and directions for lo- 
cating some of the most important 
places on campus such as the Student 
Union. From 8:30-9:30 p.m. they at- 
tend Time Piece a movie spon.sored 
by the chaplains, and discuss it. 

The first advisory meeting is held 
at 10 p.m. at which time the freshmen 
meet their advisors. The counselors 
also serve as advisors with the ratio 
of 1 to 12. but the counselors do not 
act as advisors to the same students 
who are on their corridors. The ad- 
visory metings are designed to famili- 
arize the students with the core re- 
quirements of the University, the re- 

quirements of the various schools and 
colleges within the university as a 
whole, and the tests which they will 

The next morning is devoted entire- 
ly to testing the freshmen as a group. 
In the afternoon further testing is held 
for foreign language placement and 
English advancement. Identification 
pictures are also taken for the student 
I.D. cards. 

In the evening a second advisory 
meeting is held for the group and 
more questions are answered. This 
meeting is followed by the Student 
Life Meeting and then a dance at the 
Student Union. 

Richard W. Story, the head coun- 
selor and coordinator of the Orienta- 
tion Program, considers this the most 
important meeting to explain the so- 
cial aspects of the University. The 
counselors are available to answer 
the questions of the freshmen and to 
explain the rudiments of social life. 
The function of the student govern- 
ment is also explained. 

According to Story, many of the 
questions asked at this meeting are 

concerned with open houses. Many of 
the students are not weU-informed 
about them and they often have some 
mistaken ideas about the University. 
Many of them are interested in the 
supervision of the open houses. 

The counselors tell them that they 
will be conducting themselves on the 
honor system with the major portion 
of the supervision being done by the 
house government. During the sum 
mer, parental permission forms are 
being mailed to the parents of all 
students on which they will grant or 
deny permission for their son or 
daughter to participate in the open 

With a little priming from the coun- 
selors, the freshmen ask some of the 
questions which are bothering them 
about the University. Very few stu 
dents come up with specific questions 
regarding academics, but according 
to Story ask "run of the mill fright- 
ened questions, which I think is sad." 

He goes on to say that students are 
mdoctrinated by their high school 
tciichers who -Seem to be conducting 

^ ' 9 


a "scare campaign" about college in 
general. Some of the more popular 
myths he cites are: the unavailability 
of professors, classes being run by 
graduate students, and the ever-pres- 
ent threat of flunking out. As a result, 
many of the freshmen arrive with a 
distorted picture of college. It is up 
to the counselors to dispel some of 
these misconceptions. 

Some of the questions are easy to 
arKwer. There are some who want to 
take a biology course, but can not 
find one listed. They are told that 
biology is divided into two succinct 
courses, botany and zoology. For 
many students, these are strange 
words as are sociology and psychol- 

Before arriving on campus, each 
student is sent a 25 page booklet. The 
Summer Counseling Handbook, by 
the counseling services. In the book- 
let is a 2 page rundown of the 9 
schools and colleges making up the 
University and a card with the basic 
courses listed on it. speech, foreign 
language. English, math, science and 

At the group advisory meetings, the 
advisors explain diversity and 
changes within the College of Arts 
and Sciences. They are told for ex- 
ample that it is now possible to sub- 
stitute philosophy for history. The ad 
visors are not amateurs, but have 
received their training from the Coun- 
seling and Guidance Center and the 
Associate Dean of the College of 
Arts and Sciences. Robert W. Wagner. 

The advisers plan courses for those 
with liberal arts majors and educa- 
tion. For those students entering 
nursing, engineering or home eco- 
nomics, a faculty advisor is assigned. 
Each counselor handles 12 students. 
The foundation for the pre-registra- 
tion meeting is laid in the two group 
meetings. When the advisor meets in- 
dividually with his advisee, he has be- 
fore him the results of the testing. 

The advisor then goes down the list 
of requirements one by one and fills 
in the choices of the student. He also 
explains what the foreign language 
advancement means. In addition to 
the University's tests, the advisor has 
access to the college board scores 
from high school. These are used to 
advise the student on such courses as 
math. For most students Math 111 is 
recommended, but for others a more 
advanced course may be substituted. 

The freshmen are familiarized 
with the departmental requirements 
of their specific majors. For those 
who are undecided as to what to ma- 
jor in, they are told that they can 
chose a program in which they do not 
have to declare a major for two 
years. In this case, they declare their 
major to be the College of Arts and 

The morning of the last day at 
UMass is devoted to psychological 
and vocational tests. Meetings are 
also held for men who willl be enter- 
ing the ROTC program and for those 
who will be physical education ma- 

The parents then arrive, and attend 
a meeting in the Student Union Ball- 
room at which speakers from person- 
nel give brief talks on the Univer- 
sity. J. Alfred Southworth, Director 
of Guidance, and Dean William F. 
Field, Dean of Students, also speak. 
Bus tours of the campus are provided 
for them during the day. 

At noontime, the parents meet with 
their son or davighter at Dining Com- 
mons #5 in the Southwest Resident- 
ial College. In the afternoon six 
meetings are scheduled for the par- 
ents of the men in John Adams Tow- 

er and the women in John Qulncy 
Adams Tower. 

At these meetings, panels consist- 
ing of a student counselor, a head of 
residence and a staff or faculty mem- 
ber, ane arranged to answer any 
questions which the parents might 
have. Not unlike those of the fresh- 
men themselves many of their ques- 
tions are about open houses. 

According to Story some of them 
have the impression that UMass is 
another Sodom cmd Gomorrah, and 
free sex is the rule rather than the 
exception. He says that in some cases 
it is a major job to calm the fears of 
some of these parents. Their ques- 
tions usually keep the panel occupied 
for an hour and a half. 

By late afternoon pre-registration 
is completed, and the freshmen head 
for home with their parents and their 
first impressions of UMass, 

A Few Words to the Class o f V2 

From an address by Dean Robert M. Vogel of Trinity College 

fined as an attempt to put 
things in order, to classify, to 
categorize, to tidy up an untidy 
world. But neither your great- 
est efforts nor the efforts of 
those who will teach you will 
pull it off. For the next four 
years you and your teachers are 
faced with a labor greater than 
any Hercules had to face. You 
must always assume that the 
world can be put in order, and 
you must try to put it i' order, 
while at the same time you rec- 
ognize that the complexities of 
the world are so great and so 
numerous that they defy order. 
The w^rld has been spinning for 
a long time, and every day prob- 
lems have been solved, but not 
solved forever. 

Colleges, which are entrusted 
with the responsibility of being 
seats of truth, and college stu- 
dents whose obligation is to seek 

the truth, share the often un- 
pleasant but inexcusable duty of 
epitomizing idealism and of so 
living that they lead the world 
toward the ideal. 

You are here by the faith and 
sufferance of millions of your 
fellow men who from this mo- 
ment on will look to you for 
example, for guidance, for help. 
If you have taken your educa- 
tion at this college for granted, 
as something that naturally 
followed your graduation from 
secondary school, wake up 
quick. You are responsible for 
moving this messy world a lit- 
tle bit farther in the direction of 
tidiness, a little closer to the 
ideal. Work and torment are the 
lot you have chosen. 

Do not misunderstand then 
when we ask you to be better 
than the world around you. A 
college can do no less nor can

^Looking Askance at: 

The Week in Sports 


No Joy In Mudville 

Never before have baseball fans need- 
ed the seventh-inning stretch as much 
as they do now. It's the only chance 
they have to stand up as they sound 
more like the spectators at an old age 
bridge game with their ho-hum chorus. 

The .300 hitter is fading as fast from 
the American League as the Indians 
faded from the plains. Rick Monday of 
Oakland, the current league leader, 
sports a .299 average followed by Ken 
Harrelson with a .293. With the num- 
ber of shut outs and one or two run 
games, the batting champ may not even 
be a .290 hitter. And Denny McLain 
may become the first 30 game winner 
in the majors since Dizzy Dean in 1934. 

The team batting averages are as 
sick as the individual hitters. Fourth- 
place Cleveland is leading with a .237 
with the league leading Tigers in fifth 
place at .228. 

Kvcn if the batters aren't heating the 
baselines in Ixjth leagues, the pitchers 
are smokirg up the mounds with their 
records. Bob Gibson wont 71 innings 
without allowing an earned run and Don 
Drysdale went 58 without even an un- 
earned run. Cincinnati's Don Wilson 
(who?) tied the modern major league 
record of 18 strikeouts in a nine-inning 
game, and Cleveland's Luis Tiant fanned 
19 in a 10-inning game. 

Reasons set forth for this pitching 
phenomenon have centered on the hit- 
ters, who are swinging for the fences as 
never before. Washington's Frank How- 
ard is earning his $60,000 for his hit- 
ting ability which is only .279, while 
Matty Alou is making a paltry $40,000 
for his .331 average. 

The pitchers have developed the slider 
to perfection, and the increased night 
games are said to make it more diffi- 
cult for the batter to see the ball. 

Most of the managers look like jack- 
in-the-boxes as they run out to the 
mound the minute the pitcher KK>ks 
like he is in trouble. You can't knock a 
manager for wanting to win a ball 
game, but it sure takes the fun out of 
things. Ted Abernathy of Cincinnati has 
an ERA of 0.90 as a relief pitcher with 
a 7-1 record. Although the managers 
are relying more heavily on reliefers, 
there were no reliefers picked for the 
All Star game, and the MVP award for 
the game went to Willie Mays for scor- 
ing a run on a hit, an error, a wild 
pitch and a double play ball. The pitch 
evidently is too good to be believable. 

The ball parks are getting bigger 
these days as are the gloves, but the 
bats are getting smaller. A few of the 

hitters are waking up to the fact that 
the smallness in bats is also accounting 
for their small averages. The heavier 
bats of Harrelson and Alou seem to lie 
paying off. Maybe Teddy Roosevelt had 
the right idea about the big stick. 

Although some of the cures sound like 
left - field ideas, there may be some 
worth in them. Among some of the 
more conservative remedies are lower- 
ing the pitching mound or moving it 
back, limiting the number of pitchers on 
the staff to eight and having a pinch 
batter for the pitcher every time he 
comes to the plate. 

One of the really wacky ideas, in 
terms of personnel is to divide the team 
into offensive and defensive units. As 
one fan pointed out there isn't too 
much sense in watching an outfielder 
the size of a football player panting 
after fly balls when the more fleet of 
f<x)t get splinters on the bench because 
they can't hit. 

Baseball's attendance dropped off dur- 
ing the first half of the year. The Red 
So.x pa.ssod the million mark Sunday as 
fans are still attending the games hop- 
ing that the customer is always right 
in choosing his brand. 

National League attendance declined 
by two million last year, and the figure 
may droj) another million this year. The 
American League shows a decline from 
l;ist year's record gate. 

The fans are reacting to the run- 
down offenses and the run away races 
in both leagues. The San Francisco 
Giants may l)e hurting from the com- 
petition with the Oakland Athletics. 

Julie's July 

The Connecticut Yankee in King Ar- 
nie's army walked away from the Pe- 
can Valley Country Club like Sir Lan- 
celot after a joust. Not the le;ist jolted 
after the tournament w;is King Arnold 
Palmer him.self who had failed for the 
eleventh straight time to win the PGA 

Doddering Julius Boros became the 
oldest PGA champ ever by out-putting 
the younger h<>|>ofuls to score a one- 
over-par 281 for the 72 holes. 

Boros' last rounds have been as con- 
sistently jinxed as Palmer's attempts to 
win the PGA. but Sunday the jinx was 
broken with a sw(>et victory for 48- 
year old Julie who admits "to havin,' 
few shots left in his game. 

Palmer was visibly distressed with 
his second place finish, only one stroke 
lx>hind Boros. He likened his defeat to 
the time he the U.S. Open in 19r,(j. 

U.S. Open man Lee Trevino. billed 
as another General Santa Anna al>out 

to take the Alamo from the Americans, 
was one of three eighth-place winners 
with a 288. 

Billy Casper, who has been bringing 
home the buffalo meat as the leading 
money winner on the tour, tied Frank 
Beard for fourth with a total of 284. 

Interestingly enough it was the put- 
ting that was the death of Arnie. He 
had some tough luck putting in the U.S. 
Open, but evidently he had not given 
up his putting iron, which he fondly 
calls the "White Fang." Maybe "Black 
Tooth" would be better. 

Mellow But Yellow 

Most baseball broadcasters project as 
much enthusiasm for baseball as the Mc 
Carthyites do for the war effort. And 
the game is already dull enough. 

There are exceptions. Bob Prince, the 
voice of the Pittsburgh Pirates, at times 
has been heard shouting instructions to 
the Bucs during games. Harry Caray of 
St. Louis is another welcome biased 

Among the given to pointless chatter 
of course is the Red Sox trio of Martin, 
Coleman and Parnell. Admittedly there 
isn't much to point to for the Sox, but 
the verbosity is useless and even irri- 

Athlete's Fete 

Sadness will shroud the Boston ban- 
quet circuit in coming weeks when the 
New England Turf Writers honor Pet- 
er Fuller and the baseball fans turn 
out to fete Tony Conigliaro. 

Fuller will receive his special achieve- 
ment award, ironically enough at the 
Meadows in Framingham, because Dan- 
cer's Imago was the first New England 
owned horse ever to outrun the second- 
place finisher in the Kentucky Derby. 

Ken Coleman will be master of core- 
monies at Conig's testimonial. Tony has 
decided to donate all the proceeds to 
the Jimmy Fund. 

The Ignoble Roman 

Baseball Commissioner William D. 
Eckert and Nero, the Roman emperor 
and fiddler, have a lot in common. 
Neither one of them was able to cope 
with the affairs of the empires which 
they rule at the time of their 
crisis. Nero took the noble way out and 
committed suicide after his city burned, 
but even though the baseball empire 
is crumbling around Eckert, he still 
hasn't gotten the hint and fallen on his 
sword, or rather, baseball bat. 

After the assassination of Senator Ken 
nedy. the club owners each went their 
separate ways and Eckert failed to con- 
quer the anarchy in the empire and call 
off the baseball games at least one day 
over the weekend. Some of the players 
refused to play and were thanked by 
Mrs. Kennedy, and teams at their own 
discretion called off games. But Eckert 
let the owners dictate the policy and 
heaped disgrace on baseball by his lack 
of action. 

Well, Bill, you blew it this time. You 

Th» Statvsmoii 


( ould have been linked through the an- 
nals of history with Nero. He even com- 
niilled suicide on the same day you 
might have. 

Shadow of a Wing 

The question these days in the basket- 
ball world is. "How much weight does 
;i rookie throw? " The San Diego Rockets 
and the Boston Celtics hope that it is 
quite a bit more than the weight of a 
basketball because they have gone all 
out to hire the Astrodome for the Feb. 
4 game which pits the former Houston 
teammate sensations Don Chaney and 
Klgin Hayes each other, not to 
forget Lew Alcindor sitting on the bench. 

Duck has been playing m the shadow 
of Hayes, which is a rather difficult 
thing for some one to do who has a 
spread of 82 inches, but John Havlicek 
had the same problem when he was 
playing for Ohio State on the same squad 
with Jerry Lucas. 

Chaney is being primed to take over 
the back courts when Sam Jones retires 
at the end of the 1969 season to become 
the coach at a new college in Washing- 
ton, D.C. 

The Firing Line 

The highly exclusive Ulcer Club had 
four drop-outs in the past few weeks and 
just as quickly four new members. The 
niombership in this club has to be kept 
at a constant number which is based on 

Hank Bauer was fired by the Baltimore 
Orioles and replaced by one of his 
coaches. Earl Weaver. Weaver had been 
an understudy waiting to take over from 
the wings the minute the leading man 
didn't produce. And Bauer wasn't pro- 
ducing with the Orioles. 

Chicago glso lost their manager, the 
spunky Eddie Spanky in a half and half 
decision. Stanky wanted out and the 
White Sox wanted him out. Stanky was 
replaced by Al I^pez whose wife mag- 
nanimously granted him permission to 
manage the club. It's hard to figure out 
why anyone would want to leave sunny 
Florida and retirement to manage a ball 
club, but Lopez jumped at the chance. 

The National League Phillies were the 
ones to get the ball rolUng by firing Gene 
Mauch, perhaps the shrewdest mind in 
the game, and replacing him with Bob 
Skinner. If Mauch had finished this 
year, it would have been his ninth, more 
than any other manager who hasn't won 
a pennant. Houston also released Grady 
Hatton and replaced him with Harry 

The effect which a manager has on 
his team has long been a topic of de 
bate. After Weaver took over, the Or 
ioles started to win some games. The 
same goes for the college coaches, and 
the whole argument is just a bit ridicu- 

John Wooten of UCLA was named 
Coach of the Year in 1967 because he 
had such a great team, but where do

and one who has a lot of luck recruit- 
ing and money for scholarships? 

Hou.ston's Guy Lewis received the 
award this year after his hired hands 
had gone unbeaten through a schedule 
of opponents as weak as the Seven 
Sister Colleges. 

Image Making 

Modish Michael Burke, Yankees presi 
dent and CBS executive, has gone into 
the image-business which as any political 
candidate can tell you is a very impor- 
tant thing. 

The Yankees are setting about chang- 
ing their ruthless image after firing 
Johnny Keane and Yogi Berra and an- 
nouncers Mel Allen and Red Barber. 
Although Burke claims to hate the word 
image, the Yankees are running full 
page ads in a weekly news magazine 
to entice people to buy sea.son box seat 

Mickey Mantle, meanwhile, is the top 
drawing card of the Yanks, and he is 
cheered every time he carries his heavi- 
ly bandaged legs to the plate. The Yank- 
ees would be willing to pay him top 
money even if he was using a crutch as 
a bat, which with his .236 batting ave- 
rage he might well be using. The last 
place Yankees on the team batting ave 
rage list need all the glamour they can 
get with their average of .213. 

Italians Only 

The Italians have a corner on the 
quarterback slot for the Patriots these 
days. Babe Parilli was traded to the 
New York Jets for Mike Taliaferro, but 
it was probably a covert attempt by the 
Pats to win support from Governor Volpe 
for their stadium. 

Taliaferro is a second string quarter 
back for the Jets, but like Don Chaney 
his problem has been playing on the 

same team with a bigger name. Joe 

I suppose now the question will be who 
will be the bigger name in New York. 
Namath or Parilli. Parilli has voiced his 
dissatisfaction at his second place rating 
behind Don Trull. The action in the 
locker room could become as hot as the 
water in the showers. 

Shattered Dreams 

A lot of little boys are disillusioned 
with the Red Sox for more than one 
reason. You can overlook the fact that 
they are not doing well in the pennant 
race and chalk it up to bad luck, but 
the exploits of Juan Pizzarro and Joe 
Foy are something else again. 

Foy and Pizzarro were arrested after 
the car which Foy was driving collided 
with a taxi near the Boston Common. 
The Red Sox players were charged with 
drunkenness and released on bail. The 
players have thought it was a base- 
ball game and the umpire had made a 
bad call as they started to argue with 
two of the Bo.ston boys in blue, who take 
nothing from any one. 

Pizzarro and Foy were also fined and 
suspended from the Sunday doubleheader 
with the Senators by the Sox manage- 

Glancing Askance. . .Red Sox infielder 
Dalton Jones and pitcher (?) Jim Lon 
borg left Saturday for two weeks active 
duty at Fort Meade in Maryland. Un- 
like a year ago. arrangements have not 
been made for Lonborg to make any of 
the games during the two weeks. Last 
year the Sox would have hired an airline 
to get Lonnie to a game, but now. . . . 
. . .Rumors are circulating like basket- 
balls at a pre-gamc warm up that Red 
Auerbach and Marvin Kratner are look- 
ing for a buyer for the Celts. There are 
those pessimists who claim that the trio 
of Chamberlain, West and Baylor will be 
as unbeatable as Supt^rman, Batman and 
Spiderman fighting against crime. 
But Auerbach might have the right angle 
when he says that these three may not 
be able to play together well. Anyone of 
them would hate to see their superstar 
status btcome that of a mini star. . .The 
San Francisco Warriors and the Oak 
land Oaks of the ABA aro still fighting 
in the courts over Rick Barry. The 6'9" 
player had to sit out his first season for 
the Oaks when the Warriors slapped him 
with an injunction for jumping his con 
tract. Barry, who owns 1,5'- of his father 
in law's team, made $75,000 for just sit- 
ting on the bench. No wonder he doesn't 
want to play. . .Bill Rigney. the manager 
of the California Angels, is going to 
turn in his halo at the end of the current 
season to manage the San Francisco

party member would dream of. 

Despite the strike, tihe President has

Protestors In Michigan 

LANSING. Mich. (OPS)— "Hie often- 
declared, if never-'waged, war of state

A resolution passed by the House pro- 
poses that the legislature cut appropria- 
tions to state universities where "unau- 
thorized student protests" are held. The 
resolution, approved by a 72-22 vote, 
specificaaiy suggests a $1,300 iJer student 
reduction in a university's annual appro- 
priation for failing to expel students in- 
volved in such protests. 

The Senate did not consider the pro- 
posed, since its passage and implementa- 
tion by the entire legislature would be 
an infringement of Michigan universi- 
ties' constitutional autonomy. Its pur- 
pose, according to one representative, 
was to "show that the legislature sup- 
ports law and order."

stitutions," the resolution states, "are 
expected to maintain discipline by ex- 
pelling students involved in protests. 
They are to be identified and denied the 
privilege of being students at the col-

One representative said he supported 
the resolution because its passage would 
"help students who really want to go to 
college— to study." He called students 
"guests of the college, at the suff ranee 
of the taxpayers of Michigan." 

The majority of House members who 
voted for the proposal said popular sup- 
port for it in the state was strong, partly 
in reaction to a Michigan State Univer- 
sity demonstration early in June, in 
which 27 students were arrested. 

One of the 22 who opposed the pas- 
sage said "Michigan will be laughed at

Springfield Revamps 

A revamiping of the social science cur- 
riculum of greater Springfield high 
schools is one aiim of an institute in his- 
tory being held at UMass this sunruner 
for seven weeks ending August 9. 

The institute, "Topics in American 
History," is operating on a $100,000 
National Defense Education Act grant 
and involves cooperation on the part of 
federal, state and local agencies. 

The program is being conducted by 

^ eminent specialists in the disciplines of 

'•^ history, sociology, economics, education, 

art, music, technology and literature. 

Particip)ants include 30 public, private 
and parochial secondary school teach- 
ers from the Springfield area and 30 
more from other regions of the U. S. 

The institute provides an interdiscip- 
linary approach to history, looking at 
events in the philosophical, sociologiccil 
and cultural milieu in which they took 
place. Instead of viewing a period of 
history strictly from a war and national 
problems approach, the institute empha- 
sizes the art, literature, economic sys- 
tem and technology that motivate man's 
actions or reflect his motivations. 

Institute members will be asked to 
prepare a pilot curriculum revision by 
the end of the summer to be used in 
sections of the Springfield School sys- 
tem next fall. The revision will be bas- 
ed on the interdisciplinary teaching of 
the outside experts. 

In a follow-up program during the 
summer of 1969 more Springfield teach- 
ers will join the Institute and the en- 
tire Springfield School System will em- 
ploy the revised social sciences curricu- 
lum that fall. 

Faculty Recruiting Off 

College recruiting during the 1967-68 
season fell off slightly when compared 
to 1966-67, according to Robert J. Mor- 
rissey, UMass plac^nent and financial 
aid director. 

It was an imusual year in that it got 
off to a slow start, had a burst of ac- 
tivity, and then closed on a note of 

Data compiled for the College Place- 
ment Coundl's Salary Survey revealed 
that employers made fewer job offers 
than in last year's record-breaking sea- 
son. Beginning salaries, while higher, 
(lid not increase in terms of percent- 
ages quite as rapidly as in 1966-67. 

More specifically, the volume of jolb 
offers was down 2 percent from last 
year at the bacheloPs level and even 
more at the advanced degree levels — 
down 18.9 percent for the master's and 
12.4 percent for the doctoral. 

A major factor in the decline of of- 
fers was the reduced activity by the 

luly 24. 1968 

aerospace industry. As in the past, it 
made more offers than any other em- 
ployer group but the total (6,137) rep- 
resented a drop of 23.7 percent. 

By curriculum at the bachelor's level, 
the largest increase in doUar value of 
offers was in chemical engineering, 
which finished at the top for the third 
straight year with $790 — 7.8 percent 
higher than last June. Next were elec- 
trical engineering, $774, and mechanical 
engineering, $768. Accounting majors 
received the largest percentage increase, 
8.2 percent to $689. 

In general the picture was the same 
on the advanced degn^ee level with chem- 
ical and electrical engineers receiving 
the largest percentage and dollar value 

Fellowships Available 

Several UMass fellowships are avail- 
able for qualified graduates at liberal 
arts colleges who have majored in bio- 
logy and are interested in teaching high 
school biology. 

The fellowships are available to those 
not yet certifiable for teaching who are 
either returning to college after an ab- 
sence or are recent college graduates. 
The fellowships provide stipends of 
$2000 with allowance for dependents as 

well as remission of tuition end mo0t 
fees at the University. 

At the OMnpletian of the program, 
the fellow will be awarded a master's 
degree and will be certified to teach in 
Massachusetts and most otter states.

to setUe the 75-<lay old strike that 
tihreateiiB the convention. 

In other democratic convention news, 
LBJ, the non-candidate has more con- 
trol over the convention than any other 
party member would dream of. 

Despite the strike, the President has 
already had the most sophisticated com- 
munications system ever installed in the 
Chicago stockyards amphitheatre. He has 
also handipicked the platform committee 
chairman. Rep. Hale Boggs (D-La.) and 
other convention officers. 

Johnson will be able to reach each of 
the 50 delegations on the floor as well as 
the speaker's platform from special 
telephones in his hotel room and in his 
jetliner, Air Force One. The system re- 
quires technical help from the Signal 
Corps to set up. 

In any case, the problem of a possible 
move was the final complication for a 
convention that promises to be uproar- 
ious wherever it is held. 

The McCarthy forces are plaiming an 
all out assault on the issue of Vietnam at 
the platform committee hearings, with 
the hope of finally forcing the issue of 
the war to a floor vote that might cause 
divisions among the Hubert Humphrey 

The Humphrey strategists want to shy 

away from a fight on this issue and vir- 
tually let the McCarthy people write the 
Vietnam plank. 

But President Johnson reportedly plans 
to tailor the Vietnam plank to his own 
liking, forcing Humphrey to choose sides. 

Protestors In Michigan 

LANSING. Mich. (CPS)— The often- 
declared, if never-waged, war of state 
governments and agencies on "rebel- 
lious" students has been escalated an- 
other step by the Michigan House of 

A resolution passed by the House pro- 
poses that the legislatiire cut appropria- 
tions to state universities where "unau- 
thorized student protests" are held. TThe 
resolution, approved by a 72-22 vote, 
specifically suggests a $1,300 per student 
reduction in a university's annual appro- 
priation for failing to expel students in- 
volved in such protests. 

The Senate did not consider the pro- 
posal, since its passage jmd implementa- 
tion by the entire legislature would be 
an infringement of Michigan universi- 
ties' constitutional autonomy. Its pur- 
pose, according to one representative, 
was to "show that the legislature sup- 
ports law and order."

They are to be identified and denied the 
privilege of being students at the col-

"help students who really wan", lo go io

"guests of the college, at the suffrance 
of the taxpayers of Michigan." 

The majority of House members who 
voted for the proposal said popular sup- 
port for it in the state was strong, partly 
in reaction to a Michigan State Univer- 
sity demonstration early in June, in 
which 27 students were arrested. 

One of the 22 who opposed the pas-

Allen Notes Need For Change 

More than 200 educators from all 
parts of the nation were at UMass last 
week attending a five-day microteach- 
ing conference sponsored by the Univer- 
sity School of Education. 

The conference, centering around a 
series of lectures and workshops, was 
part of a series of summer programs 
conducted by the UMass School of Ed- 
ucation, the conference is designed to 
provide leadership and direction in the 
educational field. 

Micpoteaching is a new method of 
training teachers by scaling down the 
teaching encounter. Decreasing the 
time, size and objectives of the train- 
ing class isolates specific teaching abil- 
ities and allows the trainee to focus on 

The method simplifies teaching, per- 
mits greater control over practice and 
facilitates a better evaluation of the 

Speaking before the group Dr. 
Dwight Allen, Dean of the UM School 
of Education, called upon educators to 
re-examine the outdated principle of 
teacher certification. 

The first step in his program is for 
state boards of education to shift re- 
sponsibility for certification from them- 
selves to competent teacher training 

"In addition, individual .school dis- 
tricts," he said, "should have the re- 
sponsibility of deciding the qualifica- 
tions for a position and who is most 
suited to fill it." 

The idea that students must always 
be under the constant supervision of 
licensed teachers regardless of the ac- 
tivity in the school was cited by Dr. 
Allen as "nonsense." 

"Half of the teacher's time is .«pent 
in non-teaching duties," he said. "We 
must get the teacher out of this non- 
professional role. Let the clerk do the 
clerical work and let the teacher 

The present teacher certification sys- 
tem is designed to in.sulate the student 
from incompetence, but it also burdens 
the teacher with duties not related to 
teaching, he told the group. Valuable 


instruction time is then lost because 
of this dual role of "general purpose" 
teacher and clerk. 

A distinction between primary and 
secondary responsibility to students 
must be made in order to recognize the 
variety of tasks that are commonly la- 
beled as professional, he explained. Such 
a distinction would open untapped re- 
sources in business and industry to a 
school that is not legally constrained 
from keeping people without credentials 
away from its students. 

"Local certification would allow the 
school to get the best person for the 
job without worrying about non-essen- 
tial requirements," Dean Allen said. 

Certification at the local level would 
provide for the development of what 
Dr. Allen terms "differentiated teacher 
performance criteria." This is the de- 
cision-making process of determining 
the total tasks involved in running a 
school, pinpointing the qualification.s 
needed for these tasks and deciding who 
is qualified to perform them. "We need 
to look at the task we're trying to ac- 
complish," he said, "and decide the 
training and background necessary to 
that task." 

According to Dr. Allen, "present cer- 
tification methods, although designed 
to strengthen professionalism in educa- 
tion, in effect hinder it by obstructing 
good judgment." 

As soon as teachers become financial- 
ly comfortable enough not to worry 
about new people entering the field 
without the same credentials, he said, 
the profession can be upgraded. By 
leaving schools fre<^ to hire {>eoplo with- 
out being limited by current credent ial- 
ing requirements Dr. Allen believes 
that an imix)rtant step could be made 
in developing the kind of professional- 
ism that is desired in American educa- 

In a concluding talk Allen said "Ed- 
ucation has stood still for 200 years 
and we must get it moving again." 

"Most teachers arx* never ready for 
innovations," he added, "but this should 
not deter us. We must change the fac- 
ulty, not stop innovation."

optional two years. The transferring 
students will live in private homes near 
the colleges they attend, and their basic 
living expenses will be borne by the 
sponsoring families. 

The goal is to promote fresh social 
and racial attitudes through commu- 
nity involvement in the program. Wil- 
liam A. Strauss, executive director of 
FOCUS and a senior at Harvard Uni- 
versity, said, "We feel that social isola- 
tion is a serious cause of racial and re- 
gional prejudices. We want to create a 
new and very personal channel for com- 
munication among people of different 
ages and backgrounds." 

This year, FOCX^ plans to transfer 
about 100 students, with 25 colleges 
participating. But if enough private 
donors can be found, the program will 
be continued and expanded next yeeu*. 

Surcharge Now In Effect 

Collections of the 10 per cent income 
tax surcharge which President Johnson 
signed into law on June 28 began Mon- 
day through increased withholding of 
taxes from wages and salaries. 

The additional tax must be deducted 
from paychecks received after July 13 
even though the money was earned be- 
fore that date. 

But even this will not cover aU the 
additional tax a person will owe the 
government by the end of the year be- 
cause the surtax is effective retroactive- 
ly to last April 1 for individuals and to 
last Jan. 1 for corporations. 

This means individuals must make up 
the additional tax they will owe when 
they file their Federal income tax re- 
turns by next April 15. 

College Costs Keep Rising 

WASHINGTON (CPS)>— The cost of 
attending a private four-year college 10 
vears from today will be about 30 per 
-ent higher than it is now, according to 

report just released by the U.S. Office 

At public institutions, the increase 
over the next decade is expected to be 
aiwut 20 per cent, the Office of Bduca- 
'i'ln said. 

These projections are based on the as- 

;>'imption that institutions of higher edu- 

cation will find it necessary to adjust 

*'ir charges at approximately the same 

■'■'-' as during the past 10 years. 



Ramon Edaardo Ruiz 

190 pages, bibliography, index, $6.00 

The genesis of the Castro Revolution 
is the subject of a new book, Cuba: The 
Making of a Revolution, by Ramon Ed- 
uardo Ruiz, published by the University 
of Massachusetts Press. 

Ruiz, professor of history at Smith 
College, examines the history of Cuba 
and the temper of Cuban society under 
Spanish and American rule, tracing the 
developments which made the 1959 Revo- 
lution possible. 

He writes that Spanish domination, 
dependence on an American owned 
sugar industry, the United States in- 
volvement in the island's political affairs 
all contributed to the corrosion of the 
social and economic structure in Cuba, 
and to the desire for true independence. 
"Each generation had tasted the bitter 
fruit of defeat and frustration; all had 
seen their nationalist dreams thwarted." 
He makes the important point that the 
Castro Revolution was as much a strug- 
gle for freedom from the United States 
as it was a rebellion against the Batista 

In a particularly illuminating section 
of the book, Mr. Ruiz helps to make 
Castro's relationships with the Soviet 

Union and the Communist movement 
within Cuba understandable. He argues 
that Castro, isolated by nationalism and 
America's hostile policy, turned to Soviet 
aid and to the Communist organization 
in Cuba as two of the few supports avail- 
able to consolidate his revolution. 

Ramon Eduardo Ruiz, a Mexican- 
American who is well known for his 
works on Mexico, is a scholar whose 
broad interests include many parts of 
the world and many areas of social con- 
cern. He has studied and traveled in 
South America, the Far East, and the 
Caribbean, lived intermittently in Mex- 
ico, and in 1965-66 was a Fulbright 
Scholar at the Universidad de Nuevo 
Leon in Monterey, Mexico. He received 
his Ph.D. from the University of Califor- 
nia at Berkeley and now lives with his 
family in Williamsburg, Massachusetts. 

His publications include: Mexico: The 
Challenge of Poverty and Illiteracy (The 
Huntington Library, 1963); editor and 
contributor. An American in Maximilian's 
Mexico (The Huntington Library, 1959): 
and editor. The Mexican War — Was It 
Manifest Destiny? (Holt. Rinehart and 
Winston, 1963). Professor Ruiz is cur- 
rently at work on a study of Mexican- 
Americans in the Southwestern United 
States for Random House.

Hampshire McCarthy Chairman Optimistic 

NORTHAMPTON — "McCarthy's 
chances at the convention are very, very 
good if we can loosen the delegate struc- 
ture." Expressing his hopes for an open 
Democratic convention next month was 
Thomas Prender^gast, Hampshire Coun- 
ty chairman for the McCarthy for Pres- 
ident Committee. 

Prendergast said that the aim of the 
McCarthy forces now is to insure an 
open convention. A campaign is now 
underway in New York state to obtain 
a petition with more than 5 mHiIion 
names demanding an open convention. 
According to Prendergast, if and when 
the 5 million names are presented to the 
convention, "it will make party leaders 
think twice, and those on the fence to 
consider the actual strength of the can- 
didates. McCarthy's tremendous 
strength, revealed first in New Hami>- 
shire, will be reveaUed at the conven- 

F^rendergast, a saHesman, said he is 
surprised at the people who supF>ort the 
senator. He said that the people "respect 
him as a statesman, and like him as a

will be stopped on the first ballot, de-

spite the efforts of President Johnson 
and Humphrey to secure the nomination 
on the first ballot. "The Kennedy forces, 
especially Teddy, ane working right now 
to prevent any such thing from hap- 
pening." The Kennedy machine wants 
an open convention, according to Pren- 

He said that it could all be over on 
the second ballot if the vice-president 
shows considerable strength on the first 
ballot. "If H.H.H. shows strength on 
ballot 1, the Kennedy machine might 
break down and therefore H.H.H. will 
take it." However. Prendergast pre- 
dicted that the senior senator from 
Massachusetts will come out strong for 
McCarthy before the convention. 

Continuing his prediction, he said that 
if Humphrey's support on the first bal- 
lot is only "half hearted", "a long series 
of ballots will follow but it will event- 
ually go to McCarthy, possibly on the 
20th ballot." 

The Massachusetts delegation to the 
convention with its 72 votes is pledged 
by law to vote for McCarthy on the 
first ballot sis a result of his victory in 
the state primary. However, Prender- 
gast said that if Humphrey is very 
strong on the first ballot, it's possible 

that 50 per cent of the state votes could 
go to him on the second ballot. "A lot 
depends on Kennedy's role," he said. 
He indicated that the refusal of the 
delegation to elect Lester Hyman as 
vice-chairman indicates a split in the 
ranks. Speaker Quinn, elected vice- 
chairman, is "not a Kennedy man." 

Asked whether he thinks McCarthy 
will run on a fourth party ticket if he 
loses the nomination. Prendergast said, 
"I don't think he'll go fourth party. He's 
enough of a politician so that he won't 
wreck the party, and a fourth party 
would do that." 

"I believe the professionals have 
stolen the franchise from the Ameri- 
can people," he concluded. "Without a 
doubt the professionals do have the con- 
vention sewed up on both sides, but 
there is a tremendous groundsweU to 
get the candidates the people want, Mc- 
Carthy and Rockefeller."

Students Seek to Block Hubert 

CHICAGO (CPS)— Thousands of per- 
sons will converge on Chicago during the 
Democratic National Convention in late 
August to demand an open convention 
and "a change in the direction of presi- 
dential leadership." 

The movement, called "On to Chi- 
cago," was formed last weekend at a 
meeting of the Student Coalition for an 
Open Convention, a group working to 
deny the presidential nomination to Vice 
President Hubert Humphrey. It original- 
ly was designed as a huge student march, 
with about 100,000 participants, but has 
been expanded to include all persons 
favoring a change in the Democratic 

Roger Black, editor of the University 
of Chicago Maroon and an organizer (^ 
the movement, said he expects as many 
as 400,000 or 500,000 persons will partici 
pate. "Some of the people working on 
this would call that a conservative esti- 
mate," he added. 

The original march had been planned 
at a student caucus here to provide a 
focal point for the new student involve- 

ment in national politics. Black said the 
idea was expanded because 'all types of 
individuals, not just students," are op- 
posed to the policies of the Johnson Ad- 
ministration and in favor of an open con- 

Leaders of the "On to Chicago" move- 
ment are emphasizing that their activi- 
ties will be distinct from demonstrations 
planned during the convention by the 
Student Mobilization Committee and 
other New Left and antiwar groups. The 
protests of these groups are expected to 
be more radical. 

"We're a moderate group in the area 
of tactics," Black said. "We are think- 
ing in terms of rallies and meetings, 
with speakers. We don't want to turn 
the delegates to the convention off, but 
we want them to realize that the people 
of the Democratic Party want a change. 
This was reflected in the primaries 
where 80 per cent of the people voted 
against the present policies." 

Black said the slogan "On to Chicago" 
was adopted because "we don't like the 
terms, demonstration, protest, and 
march. This is a popular Democratic 

movement within the regular party. We 
want to express our feeling that the 
Democratic party really must be demo- 

The movement is not designed in sup- 
port of a specific candidate, although 
may of the participants are expected to 
be backers of Sen. Eugene McCarthy. 
"But there still are a lot of people not 
ready to support McCarthy who will be 
with us," one spokesman said. 

"On to Chicago" is not actually spon- 
sored by the Student Coalition for an 
Open Convention, although the idea was 
partially developed by the leaders of 
this group. Leaders of the movement 
emphasize that it is not sponsored by 
any organization, but by a large number 
of individuals. 

Although most of the plans and strate- 
gies have not been worked out, regional 
committees around the country already 
are contacting students and other 
potential participants in the movement. 
Committees have been organized to ar- 
range transportation and housing for the

As it now appears, more than one

ment to watch is the favorite son sta-

Michigan, Rhodes of Ohio, and Agncw 
of Maryland. If three men are 
able to retain their favorite son sta- 
tuses for more than one ballot then

advisors tell him that once the conven 
tion opens up. that if it will go more

For Rockefeller to get the nomination 
Keagan will have to continue to steal 
southern delegates from Nixon. This 
wouldn't bother Rocky because these 
southerners could never vote for him 
anyways.. By the end of the third ballot 
Rocky would like to see Nixon and Roa 
gan with both about 350 votes and him 
self with about 450. It will be at this 
crucial point that the three favorite .sons 
will rule the game. If during this mo 
ment of indecision, of weakness. Rhodes, 
Komney. and Agnew come out for the 
New York Governor, with their 1.32 votes, 
then It could all be over by the fourth 

It seems silly to detail a .script of what 
1 would like to see happen a week from 
tonight in Miami. A "loner" has chal 
lenged the establishment. His success 
depends on what occurs in the smoke

Segregation in Tennessee's Universities 

SEE and five other state univer- 
sities were founded by the Tennessee 
state legislature to educate white 
persons, and black students were not 
enrolled in any of them until 1952. 

Last year, as usual, less than two 
per cent of the 17,000-strong student 
body at the University of Tennessee's 
Knoxville campus were Negroes. The 
other five state institutions founded 
fop white students also consistently 
enroll an extremely low percentage 
of blacks, despite court decisions 
which overturned Tennessee's segre- 
gation-in-education laws. 

By the same token, Tennessee 
A & I State University here in Nash- 
ville, the state-institution founded for 
Negroes, remains segregated for all 
practical purposes. Only 47 of A & I's 
nearly 5,000 students were white last 
year, according to a survey compiled 
for the U.S. Office for Civil Rights. 

Tennessee state officials apparent- 
ly have not been too concerned that 
their state universities, in effect, 
have remained segregated. In fact, a 
proposed $4.2 million expansion of the 
University of Tennessee's Nashville 
extension center indicates there is an 
effort to keep blacks and whites 
"separate but unequal." But a group 
of private citizens and the federal 
government have decided to inter- 

The citizens, joined by the Depart- 
ment of Justice, filed a suit last week 
against the State of Tennessee de- 
manding that the state university 
system be desegregated. The suit 
marks the first time the federal gov- 
ernment, backed by the Civil Rights 
Law of 1964, has been involved in a 
desegregation suit against an institu- 
tion of higher learning. 

The suit charges that the proposed 
addition to the major state univer- 
sity's extension center here is de-j 

July 31, 1968 

By Walter Grant 

College Press Service 

signed to perpetuate the existing sys- 
tem by primarily serving white stu- 
dents and duplicating the feicUities 
at A & I. Presently only about 300 
students attend the extension center. 
Declaring that ^Tennessee opjerates 
a racially-biasd dual system of high- 
er education, the suit says the educa- 
tional opportunities juid facilities are 
"inferior" at A & I, as well as at the 
other institutions attended mostly by 

A motion filed t)y the DepeU'tment 
of Justice asks that the State of 
Tennessee be ordered by the courts 
to take all reasonable steps to dese- 
gregate its institutions of higher edu- 
cation. The motion requests that the 
State submit to the court within a 
reasonable period of time a plan to 
end the dual system. 

If the Justice Department is suc- 
cessful in the suit, the state univer- 
sity systems in many Southern states 
will be affected. Throughout the 
South, state legislatures have man- 
aged to maintain systems of higher 
education whereby most black stu- 
dents end up attending traditionally 
black schools. And most state-sup- 
ported black colleges and universities 
in the South receive less money per 
student fnom state legislatures than 
do the predominantly white schools, 
resulting in 'inferior" facilities and 
opportunities for black students. 

An official of the Justice Depart- 
ment in Washington, D.C. predicted 
the Tennessee suit will be the first 
of many civil rights cases involving 
colleges and universities. Since the 
1964 Civil Rights Law was passed by 
Congress, most of Justice's efforts 
have been aimed at desegregating 
elementary and secondary schools. 

Although the Justice Department's 
suit is aimed at the white power 
structure which is responsible for the 
dual system of higher education, 

many black people are likely to be 
alarmed by it. The bQack power 
movement has emphasized the nec- 
essity of retaining all-black schools 
and making them the centers of the 
Negro culture. Black militants, there- 
fore, do not want their traditionally 
all-back schools invaded by whites. 

But the suit filed here this week 
seemingly makes an effort to get 
around this sticky question. The Jus- 
ice Department does not try to com- 
pletely do away with the Nashville 
extension center, but only to forbid 
construction on it until the court has 
approved a plan that would require 
the State to make the opportunities 
and facilities at Tennessee A & I 
equal to those at the white institu- 

not the only federal agency which 
is now beooming involved in secur- 
ing equal opportunity for Negroes in 
higher education. The Office for Civil 
Rights is conducting a series of in- 
vestigations of white colleges to in- 
sure that black students are not 
discriminated against in such areas as 
housing, recruitment policies, finan- 
cial aid policies, and athletic pro- 

Joshua B. Zatman, a spokesman 
for the civil rights office, sayy his 
agency has nothing to do with the 
Tennessee suit. Zatman said his of- 
fice is conducting "compliance re- 
views" to insure that colleges and 
universities are not violating Title VI 
of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If an 
institution is violating the civil rights 
law, an administrative hearing will 
l>e held, and the school could lose its 
federal financial assistance. 

Zatman said civil rights officials 
have visited about 20 campuses so 
far, and will have visited 100 il)y the 
end of the year. "So far, we have not 
found the need to hold a hearing," he 





Intruders At Melville 

Two female residento of Melville 
House awakened at 5 a.m. Saturday 
morning to find two young men rifling 
their pocketbooks. Subsequent actions 
of the two girls resulted in the appre- 
hension of one, later identified as a 
student at UMass. The other, a non- 
student, is still being sought by Univer- 
sity police. 

The apprehended suspect pleaded not 
guilty Saturday morning in Northamp- 
ton District Court to a charge of break- 
ing and entering in the daytime. His 
case was continued. 

Several residents of the dorm have 
expressed concern over the incident,

Redefining "Student" 

What do students think about stu- 
dent run colleges? Last week the Chris- 
tian Science Monitor posed this ques- 
tion to some present students and 
some graduate, these are some of the 

"I think a student-run college is in- 
evitable in America — absolutely author- 
itarian. It means a new definition of 
student. 'Student' has been used to 
mean a sub-adult mentality waiting 
for four years to become a human be- 

In presenting these views, Dave Rob- 
bins, instructor in English at the Uni- 
versity of Michigan, speaks the thoughts 
of numerous students all around the 
United States. Dr. Robbins, until recent- 
ly a graduate student at the University 
of California at Berkeley, is convinced 
that students must become much more 
involved in their own education. 

"Expyerimentsd colleges," he says, "are 
still based, unfortunately, on authori- 
tarian paradigms [models.] And we still 
treat education as a product. So you go 
to an experimental college where you 
get personal service. It's a good com- 
modity at, say, a place like Harvard 
now. But it's still a commodity. 

"The whole vision of education today 
is a bunch of egg cratings compartment- 
alizing bits of knowledge. It's phony." 

If the students have anything to say 
about it, education in American univer- 
sities is going to undergo a radical 
t rans forma t ion . 

Under particularly heavy attack is. the 
lecture system, or as some prefer to call 
it, the sermon approach. Long the pri- 
mary technique of imparting knowledge, 
this method, whereby an authority fig- 
ure addresses a more or less passive, if 
not captive audience, is giving way to 
the dialogue approach of the seminar. 

Allen E. Ivey and John Hinkle of 
Colorado State University charge that 
academic institutions "have failed to 
involve students in the most excitin? 
and humanizing dimension of education, 
that of being fully active in the process 
of learning and knowing." 

Although "some students will, no 
doubt, be content to regurgitate ab 
sorbed knowledge from predigestcd lec- 
ture notes," they stress that other nial- 
uring students will need considerably 
more involvement and respon.sbility. 
They propose that universities m.iko

Election Year Blues 

South Vietnamese are taking more of 
an interest in this year's American Pres- 
idential race than many American's are. 
The effect oi the November voting may 
have as much effect on their lives as it 
has on the national scene. 

The elections, combined with the real- 
ization that the war is unpopular with 
an increasingly larger segment of the 
U. S. has made the South Vietnamese 
uneasy. No matter who is elected, they 
realize that the Johnson policies will un- 
dergo change. 

On the street, Bernard Weinraub of the 
Times reports that the upcoming elec- 
tions are openly discussed and the press 
comes out with daily statements con- 
demning "Western politicians who urge 
a sellout." 

President Nguyen Van Thieu at a 
news conference in Independence Palace, 
spoke heatedly of the American elections. 

"No matter who is going to be elected 
President in the United States, the future 
President cannot betray the pledges 
made by three U.S. Presidents to help 
Vietnam maintain freedom and indepen- 
dence," he said. 

"You are in Vietnam to fight for your- 
self and fight for the freedom of human- 

Ironically, as curiosity and even con- 
fusion about the election grows, actual 
concern about the outcome appears to 
be lessening. "When talk of the election 
began and Robert Kennedy was alive, 
they were very worried, even panicky," 
said one American official. "They looked 
on Kennedy as a real threat. 

"Now. with everyone saying that it 
looks like Humphrey and Nixon, they're 
not so worried," the official went on. 

"Of course, with Humphrey talking 
about peace and raising the question of 
a cease-fire, they're not entirely enthusi- 
astic either. But there's no feeling of 


Let There Be Light 

After three years of serious urban 
rioting by Wacks and poor whites the 
National Advisory Commission on Civil 
Disorders has made an official diag- 
nosis: Yes, the urban riots of the 1960's 
are a form of social protest and future 
riots cannot be prevented by massive 
suppression but rather by transforming 
slums and cities into a livable environ- 

The American Press, mirroring the 
public conscience, played up the find- 
ings of the Commission with banner 
heads and the like, treating the report 
as if it were a whole new, unconsidered 
concept. The Times gave it the sacrosant 
top right column, page one for those who 
continued to disbelieve. 

The report tends to support the find- 
ings of the President's Commission which 
held that the country was moving in the 
direction of two separate societies— one 
black and one white, separate but un- 
equal and that white racism was largely 
to blame. 

The recent Civil Disorders Commis- 
sion had three main points: 

It repudiated the theory that riots 
were caused only by the "riffraff in a 
cammunity, the cronic losers. 

They are caused and supported by a 
large percentage of the Negro population. 

Negroes, in the majority, would still 
prefer an integrated society with the 
whites but the Negro has lost faith in 
the American system and is increasingly 

drawn to militant leaders who offer more 
in terms of his social needs than Con- 

Finally the report gave statistical cre- 
dence to the problem of insensitivity on 
the part of slum businesses, police and 
other institutions to the needs and fears 
of the Negro community. 

In concise terms the report reveals 
what has been clear for sometime, the 
Negro rioting is a social protest aimed 
at a social condition that has existed 
ever since the first black man was chain- 
ed to the American soil. Enlightening 
perhaps, for those who "just can't un- 
dersand what's wrong with America. 


Congested Skies 

In the ilast few weeks, as summer air 
traffic hit its peak and flights were de- 
layed causing back ups from New York 
to Boston, the plight of the airports, 
and the commercial flight industry were 
brought into clear focus. 

Airlines have taken a defensive tact 
in view of the criticism and have placed 
the blame on the air traffic controllers, 
the men who give the clearance for 
flight and landings on a minute to min- 
ute basis. The airlines have particularly 
blamed the Professional Air Traffic 
Controllers Organization for being too 
strict with the Federal guidelines. 

The controversy began July 3, when 
PATCO announced it would "go by the 
book." By that it meant it would no 
longer bend air traffic control rules to 
cut comers and expedite flights in and 
out of major airports.

that the effect of its action may be to 
slow traffic in peak periods, "but traffic

UMass Renews Old Ties with Hokkaido U 

A 92-year-old friendship between 
UMass and Hokkaido University in 
Japan will be renewed this week with 
the visit to UMass of a group of 135 
Japanese, including the retired pres- 
ident of Hokkaido. 

The group of young Japanese busi- 
nessmen and government employees 
will be guests of the University Aug. 
3 through Aug. 6. Many are graduates 
of Hokkaido and one of the four di- 
rectors of the group is Dr. Hurasade 
Suginome, retired president of Hok- 

The UMass-Hokkaido ties go back 
to 1876, when William S. Clark, an 
early UMass president, went to Japan 
to breathe life into the newly-estab- 
lished institution at Hokkaido. The 
present visit by the Japanese group 
•is in response to an invitation by 
UMass President John W. Lederle. 
The group will arrive in Amherst, 

Saturday, August 3. Saturday eve- 
ning they win be the guests of the 
University's Center for Internation- 
al Agricultural Studies at a per- 
formance of the UMass Summer Re- 
pertory Theatre play "The World of 
Sholom Aleichem." Sunday the group 
will tour the University and visit mu- 
seums in the Springfield area. 

Monday morning they will tour Old 
Sturbridge Village as guests of the 
Old Sturbridge Village trustees. In 
the afternoon the group will visit the 
Robert Maynard dairy and milk pro- 
cessing plant in Charlton. 

UMass President John W. Ledoile 
will be the host Monday at 6:30 p.m. 
in the Student Union at a banquet 
honoring the visitors. Faculty, staff 
and others in the University commu- 
nity have been invited. Representing 
Gov. John A. Volpe will be John Pat- 
terson, executive secretary of the 

Japan Society of Boston and forme- 
American consul in Japan. 

The group will leave Amherst 
Tuesday for further travel in the U.S. 

The 92-year affiliation between 
Hokkeiido and UMass is the oldest 
exchange program known between an 
American and a foreign institution of 
higher education. Exchange visits by 
students and faculty have been fre- 
quent through the years, particular- 
ly during a 1958 1962 AID contract, 
when 11 UMass faculty served at 
Hokkaido and 52 Japanese faculty 
and students came to Amherst for 
advanced training. 

Dr. Suginome was awarded an hon- 
roary degree by UMass in 1966. In 
1963, E>r. Suginome attended the 
UMass centennial and was awarded 
an honorary degree by Piresident

couldn't handle it safely until they went 
by the rules," a spokesman contends. 
PATCO seeks more controllers hired, 
improved safety equipment in elec- 
tronics and radar, shorter work shifts 
and' more relief time to enable control- 
lers to stay alert. 

Their action has created a sort of 
domino system of delays, stretching to 
airports across the nation. With Logan 
related so closely to New York's two 
major airports, delays of incoming 
flights to New York will upset the local 

A corollary problem caused by con- 
gestion has been the rapid accumulation 
of flying time by pilots. Most of the 
pilots' union contracts set a maximum 
of 85 hours of flight time a month, and 
the long delays have put some crews 
close to their limit, jeopardizing sched- 
ules for the rest of July. 

As the delays mount, airlines execu- 
tives are planning to meet in Washing- 
ton to discuss the traffic-crisis and 
ways of sproa.iing out or limiting peak- 
hour schedules. 

In the Driver's Seaf 

seeking high school seniors are now 
iii the driver's seat, and many are re- 
jecting college acceptance offers by 
the dozens, according tu a report by 
the American College Admission Cen- 

The report says a recent survey of 
560 Eastern colleges revealed that 
only one per cent are no longer con- 
sidering qualified applicants. Some 
colleges reported that enrollments 
are 30 per cent behind last year at 
this time. 

Dr. Henry Klein, president of the 
six-year-old Center, said there are 
three main reasons for the vacant 
seats awaiting students. "First, there 
are more colleges than ever before. 
This year a new community college 
opened every week somewhere in the 
U.S. Second, the rash of college dor- 
mitory building with federal funds 
—has out-raced the number of avail- 
able students. Third, there are fewer 
high school graduates this year than 
in previous years. While the number 
has increased annually, the rate of 
increase is slowing down." 

Dr. Klein said the number of high 
school graduates increased 84 per 
cent between 1955 and 1965, but will 
increase only 29 per cent l)etv.een 
1965 and 1975. 'Therefore, after the 
peak of nearly three million high 
school graduates is reached in 1970, 
the actual number will start to de- 
cline. By 1980, some college campuses 
may become ghost towns," Dr. Klein 

Lifting The Ban 
On Southern Belles 

The problems of how to affect change 
and reform are {perennial issues on any 
college campus. At the University, 
changes in social regulation involving 
curfews and open houses came the long 
hard road up through regular establish 
ed channels. 

At the University of Georgia oiMcials 
say the same process took place but a 
number of student demonstrations there 
last Spring probably helped them along. 
U. of Georgia is now one of the most 
permissive of Southern Universities. 

Beginning in September, women stu 
dents over 21 will be exempt from all 
university curfews. And any junior and 
sophomore coed who can get written 
parental permission will be exempt as 
well. At the same time all students, men 
and women, over 21 will be permitted 
to drink alcoholic beverages off campus. 
State law prohibits consumption of aico 
hoi on the state owned campus. 

In the past, the University has banned 
all drinking by all students, regardless 
of age. Although no curfew existed for 
men. all coeds had to be in Il:.30 p.m. 
on week nights and by 1 a.m. on week- 
ends. spring the University was plagued 
by student demonstrations that labeled 
the curfew restrictions discriminatory 
and called for an end to the ban on 

A university spokesman said that the 
changes bad nothing to do with last 
spring's activities. He said the changes 
have been in the discussion stage for 
almost a year and represent the work 
of .student government and the Faculty 
Committee on Student Affairs. 

Initial reaction from students was gen- 
erally enthusia.stic. On the subject of 
drinking, the view was that legality had 
caught up with reality. 

"It is not going to make any difference 
anyway '• said Mimi Grove, "an 18 year- 
old sophomore, "since people over un 
der. and who are 21 drink 

"It is expected of you as a student I 
don t care how old you are." 

One coed predicted "there will be a 
ot of loud parties at the beginning of 
the fall quarter, hut everything will set 
tie down quickly." 

Barbara Martin. 22. a senior, said the 

new regulations were needed, not for 

he purpose of staying out all night S 

bility. She observed that the liberalized 
regulations will serve to weed out coeds

Ford Grant for N.S.A 

nalJ'nn'f 'm'"'"!' ''^^"^'^"^ Association, the 

ernmenV ''^ '"^ '^''^^'''^t student gov 
ernment organization, will receive, 

to coordinate and assist .student initiated 

educational reform movements it i, 
been announced. A major objeciiv. ,,1 
the program, according to the N s A 
is "to generate quiet revolutions'.d 
of ugly ones" on U.S. 

In announcing the N.S.A. grant y 
Champion Ward, Foundation vice pn si 
dent for Education and Research said 
that "while Foundation to 
higher education has been concentritid 
on faculty and administration supported 
projects, it is akso important that student 
groups be aided directly in their efforts 
to contribute their special perspective to 
the improvement of educational pro 
grams. We hope that the N.S.A. 's new 
effort will stimulate thoughtful student 
involvement in the advancement of hi'-ii- 
er education on campuses throughout 
the country." 

The grant will support two principal 
activities of the N.S.A.: a national dis- 
semination program to inform students 
about the possibilities of educational in- 
novation and change, and an advi.sory 
program to enable N.S.A. staff members 
to participate actively in student reform 

As part^ of the dis.semination program, 
the N.S.A. will compile a of speak 
ers and consultants who would be avail 
able to student organizations. It will sur 
vey reform movements on selected 
campuses and as.semble step by step 
chronologies of successful and 
ful campaigns for specific reforms It 
will also publish an educational reform 
newsletter, background papers by .stu- 
dents on educational innovation, and 
analyses of such programs as freshman 
orientation, freshman .seminars, and stu 
dent participation in policy formation. 

To be offered initially in only one re 
gion of the country, the advisory pro 
grom will be supervised by a program 
director and three staff members. The 
work of the .staff on a given campus 
might include speaking before campus 
groups, running training .sessions for 
student leaders, or organizing campus 
wide conferences and .seminars on stu 
dent initiated reforms. 

The regional advi.sory service will an 
nually have an "innovation support fund" 
of $1.5.000 which will be available for 
grants of up to $1,000 to student groups 
engaged in innovative programs. 

The N.S.A. is a confederation ol .'526 
college and university student govern 
ment bodies that serves as the official 
national representative of U.S. college 
students in international conferences. 
Current president is Edward Schwartz, 
a 196.5 graduate of Oberlin College 

Previous Foundation grants t ) 
N.S.A.. totaling $.'118,000. have suppoi <^l 
projects ranging from scholarships u>v 
foreign student leaders to the puhlic! 
tion of a directory of summer conimii

Three Other Grants 

A second grant, for $7,260 was maiic 
to the N.S.A. to conduct research .mi) 
prepare a preliminary report on !!i< 

The «» 


black student in higher education. The 
report, to focus on the predominantly 
Negro college campuses, will examine 
such questions as the composition of the 
student bodies, qualifications of faculty, 
encouragement of "black culture," stu- 
dent rights and privileges, and the na- 
ture of student contributions to campus 

The Foundation also made a grant of 
$30,000 to the National Urban League 
for partial support of a leadership train- 
ing program for students from Negro 
student associations. Four - member 
teams will conduct programs in such 
areas as consumer education, economic 
development, and housing in ten cities 
this summer. The cities are Akron. Ohio; 
Atlanta, Ga.; Bay Area. Calif.; Colum- 
bus. Ohio; Dallas. Tex.; Gary. Ind.; 
Hartford. Conn.; Indianapolis. Ind.; 
Rochester, N.Y.; and Seattle, Wash. 

A study of the legal implications of 
student protest activity will be made 
with a Foundation grant of $15,000 to the 
University of Chicago. The study, to be 
conducted by Karl Bemesderfer. an as- 
sistant dean at the university, will ex- 
amine such themes as the application of 
First Amendment theory to problems of 
speech and as.sociation on campus, the 
nature of contractual relations between 
privately supported colleges and univer 
sities and their students, due process 
and disciplinary hearings, and the uni- 
versity's role in the enforcement of crim 
inal laws against students. 

UMass Is #49 

UMass is now the nation's 49th lar- 
gest contributor of Peace Corps Volun- 
teers, according to the Corps' Office of 
Public Affairs. 

The latest statistical rundown shows 
that 106 Volunteers from UMass have 
been selected for Peace Corps assign- 
ments, including 56 now serving over- 

They have served in sub-Saharan 
Africa (27), East Asia and the Pacific 
Islands (SJ), Latin America (31) and 
in the North Africa/Near East/South 
Asia region (17). 

Of the nation's 2,800 colleges and 
universities, five other Massachusetts 
schools also fall into the top Peace 
Corps producers. They are: Harvard, 
ranking sixth; Boston University, 25th; 
Boston College, 61st; Tufts, 107th; and 
Northeastern, 110th. 

The top five schools in the nation in 
order are: the University of California 
at Berkeley, University of Wisconsin, 
University of Washington, Stanford Uni- 
versity and the University of Michigan. 

UMass ranked 100th last year for 
total volunteers produced since 1961 
when the Peace Corps began in eight

Nixon Disappears 

Richard Nixon disappeared last week 
and sent his ambassadors out on the 
roads instead to reassure the public 
that he was still the number one GOP 
contender, at least his polls say so. 
Hiding out along the south coast of 
California, Nixon seemed to be saying 
that in his mind the nomination is 
sewed up, that he had done all that 
Richard Nixon could do to win the con- 
vention votes. 

The question raised by political ob- 
servers was not whether he had reached 
the peak of his campaign or nomination, 
but whether he had peaked high enough 
to sustain his campaign right on 
through the Miami voting. 

Two developments indicated' that he 
hadn't made it. One was the endorse- 
ment of Rockefeller by Illinois Senator 
Charles Percy. The other was the an- 
nouncement by what was believed to be 
a strong Nixon delegation from North 
Carolina that they would leave them- 
selves open and rally behind a favorite 
son candidate. 

Nonetheless the Nixon camp main- 
tained confidence last week and con- 
tinued to produce the results of polls 
which naturally put their boy well out 
in front of the pack. 

A Gain, Perhaps, for Rocky 

While the polls, both national and 
those produced by the candidates, con- 
tinued to fog the political circuit last 
week Governor Rockefeller gained hope 
from the uncertainity. Uncertainty at 
least was an improvement over his po- 
litical status a month ago when he was 
written off as a possible contender. 

The endorsement of Senator Percy of 
Illinois, gave a psychological lift to the 
Rockefeller effort. It proved that at 
least one politician of national repute 
agreed that the outcome at Miami 
Beach was not fore-ordained. 

It was a good omen to be added to 
others big crowds at almost every stop 
since the Fourth of July, graduaL ero- 
sion of Nixon's strength in rK?rhaps a 
dozen states, good response at private 
meetings with delegates, better stand- 
ing in the polls. 

Nevertheless, the Governor's candidacy 
remained a long shot. Reporters travel- 
ing with him agreed that the odds had 
got better in the last two weeks — but 
still were in the neighborhood of 3-or 4- 
to-1 against him. 

Clean Gene's Clean Sweep 

Senator Eugene McCarthy addressed 
a standing room only audience of roar- 
ing fans last week in Fenway Park and 
reiterated his campaign goal of testing 

the American political system by forc- 
ing it to confront the issues. 

McCarthy said that he has had rea- 
sonable success in raising the issues but 
doubted whether or not the confronta- 
tion had produced a real test of the 
strength of the democracy. 

H.H. Humphrey refused to debate 
McCarthy last week. McCarthy said a 
debate the week before the national 
convention would be fruitless because 
the public response would not get to 
the delegates in time. McCarthy, instead 
suggested that they debate before the 

The Senator appeared quite confident 
and the reception at Fenway, the big- 
gest since the Sox copped the penant, 
only boasted his spirits. 

To test democracy McCarthy said 
that he hopes to "find out whether, if 
you give the people the facts. . . there 
is sufficient integrity and sufficient 
moral courage in the country to bring 
about the kind of judgment that is 
called for under the circumstances." 

He said his election will answer this 
test of democracy. 

He said also: "It is time to have done 
with the language of promise, to have 
done with the language of excess and 
of exaggeration. 

"I think we are ready in this country 
to face up to the realities of 1968." 

The enthusiastic rally followed a day 
in which McCarthy touched all political 
bases— meeting with delegates and ma- 
jor campaign contributors, talking with 
newsmen, welcoming members of black 
organizations from throughout New 
England and conversing warmly with 
his public.

The Week in Sports 

Fallen-Sfar Game 

The College All-Stars wiU face the 
pro-football champion Green Bay Pack- 
ers at Soldiers Field in Chicago Friday 
night, and the collegians have about as 
much chance of winning as Pat Paulsen 
does in November. 

The campus heroes represent the best 
of the college players in the country, and 
most of them are under contract to 
either the NFL or the AFL. But the All- 
Star game could be one of the biggest 
farces of the summer next to the politic- 
al conventions. Although the collegians 
have the talent, they have not had the 
time to perfect their team play to come 
even close to that of the well-oiled Green 
Bay machine. 

Last year the Packers defeated the 
All Stars. 27 0, and the kids haven't won 
since 1963 when they defeated the Pack- 
ers. 27-0. in the surprise of the century. 
Norm Van Brocklin, replacing John 
Sauer who resigned after last year's 
massacre, will be playing the part of 
the field general himself from the bench. 
In this way he has taken the mental 
part of the game away from his two 
quarterbacks. UMass' Greg Landry and 
UCLA's Gary Beban, and left only the 

Van Brocklin is planning to alternate 
these two and maybe even put them in 
the backfield together. Landrv and Beban 
depend on big Larry Csonka from Svra 
cuse as the running back. 

If Landry or Beban can get the ball 
into the air. Southern Cals Earl McCul 
lough will be waiting to receive. But the 
QB has to get the snap off before Nit- 
scheke gets his paws on him. 

The Detroit Lions are hoping though 
that there is .something left of Landry 
because they lost their .starting quarter 
back Bill Mun.son due to injuries. When 
the Lions start their exhibition series 
shortly after the All Star game, the 
quarterbacking chores may be divided 
between Landry and Karl Sweetan. 

Even if Landry is superb in Chicago 
he could be hurt by not being in Detroit 
With the Lions hurting for a quarterback 
and Landry in Evanston, Sweetan could 
monopolize the position before Landry 
gets his signals learned. 

Dennis Byrd of North Carolina has the 
same problem. The Patriots are desper 
ate for a defensive left end with Bobbv 
Dee retired and Tom Fussei! in the hos 
pital. but their Number One candidate 
and draft choice is playing with the All 

The All-Stars have been blanked the 
last two years, and they .stand a good 
chance of suffering the same fate as 
their predecessors. After all, what can 
you expect? Green Bay is too much even 


for the NFL. 

Where's Joe Black? 

Hoyt Wilhelm, the man with the iron 
fingernails, equalled Cy Young's records 
for the most game appearances. While 
most pitchers are worried about sore 
arms, calcium deposits and tendonitis, 
Wilhelm has to worry about hangnails. 

Wilhelm can make a baseball look like 
a marshmellow. although an eccentric 
one, which was reason enough for the 
development of the oversized catcher's 
mitt his catchers have to use. 

There are some who claim that Wil- 
helm is not a pitcher, but if he is not, 
then what is he? He has made a better 
career with the soft pitch than most 
other pitchers have made with the light- 
ning stuff. The man to whom he finished 
second as Rookie of the Year in 1952, 
Joe Black, has been an ex major leaguer 
for 11 years. 

For the people who feel that .some mis- 
carriage of justice is being done to Cy 
Young, it can really do little to tarnish 
his marks. Young hurled 751 complete 
games and pitched 7..177 innings while 
Wilhelm has pitched only 2.052 innings, 
including a no-hitter against the Yank- 
ees when they were the Yankees.

The National and American Ba.seball 
Leagues have expanded and .split the

Fame and Famine 

The induction of Hazen (Kiki) Cuyler 
Joe (Ducky) Medwick and Leon (Goose l 
Croslin into the baseball Hall of Fame at 
Cooperstovvn was enough to warm the 
cockles of Causey Stengel's old heart 
Stengel last week was saying thsl the 
lack of ..300 hitters in the majors was 
nothing to do with the way they were 
hitting, but that the majors just hap- 
pened to have a crop of good pitchers 
blossoming at the same time. 

The newest members to have their 
placques hung on the walls at Coopers- 
town fmished their careers with catchy 
lifetime averages, Cuyler with a 321 
Medwick, .324 and Goslin, .31(i. 

Goslin said he thought he could hit 
.300 today. Goslin also had some ad\ice 
lor the hitters today. "I don t under- 
stand why the batters toda> take so 
many good balls and stand there looking 
at them. You can't get a base hit with 
the bat on your shoulder like I've seen 
them do on television. They just stand 
there and look at the ball." 

Something has to be done to get a 
little life into baseball, and it doesn't 
look as if there is any hope for a deus 
ex machina because the goJ.s, Hko Carl 
Yastrzemski, just aren't hitting. Maylx?

College Athlefics- 
What Do They 
Contribute To Education ? 



The Statesman 

While an upheaval is going on among 
Negro track stars, most of them col- 
legians, who are planning to ttirn Mex- 
ico City into another Resurrection City 
during the fall Olympics, the following 
art'wle in the Chicago Daily News sheds 
light on one rmin's views of a question 
that Harry Edwards and Sports Illus- 
trated, in its recent series on the black 
athlete, seem to have forgotten: What 
i,s' college for? 

Dr. Hutchins proposes the extreme, 
ubolition of all "pro" sports on campus, 
but his blanket indictment of collegiate 
sports, unlike that of Sports Ilhistrated, 
rests on the premise that if an athlete 
gains nothing from his college experi- 
ence, what is he doing there in the first 

Robert Maynard Hutchins thinks 
that most paid athletes— black and 
white should stop trying to go to col- 

"It probably would be better to play 
profesional f>ootball right after high 
school or go into some other work, 
honest work like running a laundry 
route or mowing lawns for a living," 
Hutchins said in an exclusive interview. 

Hutchins, of course, is the former 
chancolk>r of the University of Chicago 
and the man who booted intercollege 
f<x)tball off the campus a generation 
ago. He looks at sports with something 
other than the eyes of a superfan. 

In this era of turmoil in professional 
athletics, this age of wide concern for 
the black athlete, his view from on high 
includes such thoughts as: 

The man who once was called the 
boy wonder" of higher education, now 
IS 69 and gray. But ho sat erect at his 
desk and fielded the questions about 
athletics niftily. Here are excerpts from 
this conversation with Hutchins: 

Q. Dr. Hutchins, what is your concept 
of the role of athletics in college today 
If there is a place for it? The question 
IS, I suppose, how do you get amateur 
athletes into college life? 

A. The industrialization of athletics 
at a university is almost identical with 
the industrialization of any other pro- 
cess that goes on in the commercial 
world. Not interested in educating these 
young people, not interested in what 
happens to them after they graduate, 
all you want to do is make as much 
money, get as much publicity as possi- 

and then go to classes without intellec- 
tual stimulation it probably would be 
better to play professional football right 
after high school or go into some other 
line of work . . . honest work like run- 
ning a laundry route or mowing lawns 
for a living. There's nothing in going to 
college unless you are able to take ad- 
vantage of the opportunities, the educa- 
tional opportunities. 

Yes, Deprived 

The only possible conceivable, justi- 
fiable reason for having athletics in the 
university is that it contributes some- 
thing to the recreation and pleasure 
of the young people while they are 
there studying. 

Unbiased Arrangements 

There is no significant difference 
in the treatment of athletes, whether 
they're Negro or white. 

^'The question of what to do about 

the Negro athlete on campus is really a 

question of what to do about all ail- 

l«^giate athletes who are paid to play 

games— and end up without an educa- 

—A kind of revolution is at hand 
among college students who are going 
to to support hired football 

"Boy Wonder" 

If you're looking for Hutchins these 
flays, you find him by driving to a man- 
sion in a secluded, woody section of 
Santa Barbara. This is the for the 
Mudy of Democratic Institutions. 
Hutchins is president of the center. 

luly 31, 1968 

Q The Negro athletes, or at least 
some of them, are saying they're merely 
used by "Whitey." 

A. This would be almost as true if 
they were white. There are alumni 
groups around this country who go 
about buying up players — everybody 
knows this. There are special arrange- 
ments for athletes, both financial and 

The reason the black students, the 
black tfthletes, feel more resentful than 
the white ones is they have less chance 
academically, greater burdens academi- 
cally. Their preparation is uniformly 
worse than the preparation of the white 
students. Therefore they have greater 
obstacles to contend with. They are 
simply an extra — hfirdship case cf the 
ordinary case of the athlete in an insti- 
tution of higher learning. 

Q. What about the argument that with- 
out athletic scholarships some of these 
boys might not be able to go to college 
at all? 

A. In most cases I think it would be 
just as well. They probably would be 
better off if they didn't go. There's no 
magic about going to college. The ques- 
tion is what you do when you get there. 
If you spend your time getting beaten 
up on the football field every afternoon 

Q. One of the Negro athletes' chief 
complaints is that they have been barred 
from the general campus life. Do you 
feel that general socializing and mixing 
is a necessary useful part of the college 

A. Certainly. The only reason in the 
world for the existence of a college is 
this interaction among people. The object 
of bringing these young people together 
is to provide for the inter-action among 
them. Dialog, conversation — this is the 
way to learn. If they are not given an 
opportunity to participate in the whole 
campus activity, they are deprived. 

Q. Do I get the impression that you 
believe there is no significant difference 
in the treatment of athletes, white or 
black, at universities? 

A. I don't see any. One thing that's 
related to it, however, in a way is that 
white students are losing interest in 
intercollegiate athletics, big-time athle- 
tics. I was told this morning — I don't 
know whether it's true or not — that 
the students at San Francisco State have 
voted not to support a football team in 
the autumn. This is going to spread, I 
think, because there is great dissatisfac- 
tion among students of all colors with 
the kind of education they are being 
offered and the kind of universities of 
which they are now members. This is 
going to have an effect, I think, on the 
development of athletics and the position 
of athletics in the American college. 

Changing the Picture 

Q. What would be the result of the 
abolition of "professional sports" from 
the universities? 

A. The abolition of intercollegiate foot- 
ball at the University of Chicago was the 
greatest single thing the University of 
Chicago ever did. The best students from 
all over the world flocked into the uni- 
versity as a result. One of the things 
that has to be done about the colleges 
and universities is to change the picture 
that the public entertains of what they 
are all about. 



Michelongelo Here 

A public exhibit based on the draw- 
ings of Michelangelo is on display at the 
Student Union art gallery now through 
Friday, August 9. 

The exhibit, consisting of 75 facsimiles 
and ten text panels, includes figure 
sketches and studies for specific pro- 
jects such as the Medici Chapel in 
Florence and the Sistine Ceiling in the 
Vatican as well as several architect- 
tural projects. Every drawing is repro- 
duced in the exact size and color of the 

Viewed chronogically, the exhibit 
starts with copies of former masters 
such as Giotto and Masaccio made dur- 
ing Michelangelo's youth, and includes, 
among others, sketches for the Sistine 
CeUing, the Medici Chapel and the 
facade for San Lorenzo in Florence, 
plus works of his old age. Only a part 
of the drawings executed by Michelan- 
gelo have survived to the present day 
because he often destroyed them after 
they had served their usefulness. 

Today, most of Michelangelo's draw- 
ings are contained in relatively few 
collections in museums in Florence 
London, Paris and Vienna. An anony- 
mous foundation is sponsoring this ex- 
hibit which is being circulated through 
the United States under the auspices of 
The American Federation of Arts. 

It is open to the public without 
charge as part of the 1968 UMass Sum- 
mer Arts Program. 

Poe's Poems 

Master story teller Philip Hanson will 
give a reading of Edgar Allan Poe's 
stones and poems Wednesday, Aug 7. 
at 8 p.m. in Bowker Auditorium.

some of the best of that writer's works- 

Masque of the Red Death," "The Pit 
and the Pendulum." "The Black Cat " 
"The Raven." "Annabel Lee" and others. 

As a college student. Mr. Hanson be- 
gan to experiment with the solo per- 
formance and brought it to perfection 
as a concert artist. He began touring 
the country in 1959 with his first memo- 
rized one-man show. He follows the 
Charles Laughton-John Gielgud tradition 
of memorizing the work to be presented, 
and then giving himself entirely to the 
words and the movement they require. 

He played his one-man "Moby Dick" 
at the Madison Avenue Playhouse in 
New York in 1961 and his Dickens 


"Christmas Carol" at New York's Town 
Hall in 1966. He spent several years pre- 
paring the Poe show which opened to a 
standing room only audience in 1966 and 
was immediately booked for its second 
performance by Brooklyn Academy of 
Music in New York. 

Tickets for his hour-and-a-half show 
will be sold at the door. UMass students 
with summer IDs will be admitted free.

Sanders Edits Essays 

A UMass asociate professor of Eng- 
lish who teaches courses in Biblical lit- 
erature has published a collection of 
critical essays on the Book of Job. 

Paul S. Sanders, an ordained Metho- 
dist Jninister. edited "Twentieth Cen- 
tury Interpretation of the Book of Job " 
published by Prentice-Hall, Inc. The 
articles in the book, written by such 
soholaxs.and critics as Gilbert Murray, 
Arnold J. Toynbee and Richard B. Se- 
wall, explore centliries-old questions 
about the Book of. Job— its origin, its 
poetic and dramatic structure, the char- 
acter and purpose of its unknown auth- 
or and its place in Hebraic and ancient 
literature and in world literature as a 

"For western man," observes Prof 
Sanders in the introduction, "Job has 
been the preeminent symbol of innocent 
suffering." The contributors particular-

the question that Kenneth Rexroth in 
his es.say calls "the ultimate mystery 
of man's existence"— whether or not 
evil is consonant with meaningful exi*;- 

Prof. Sanders was graduated from 
the University of Alabama in 1939 with 
a B.A. and received a Bachelor of Div-

Radio Astronomy Begins 

Two leading radio astronomers, one 
of them the co discoverer of the latest 
in a new group of stars known as pulars 
have been named to the staff of the de- 
partment of physics and astronomy at 
the UMass to direct a new program in 
radio astronomy. 

They are Dr. G. Richard Huguenin 
who led in the recent discovery of the 
fifth known pulsar while a member of 
the Harvard College Observatory staff 
and Dr. William Dent of the Univer.stiy 
of Michigan. 

Both will join the UMass faculty in 
September of this year and will be mem- 
bers of the Four-College Astronomy De- 
partment of UMass and Amherst. Mount 
Holyoke and Smith Colleges.

"Swedish Style" Changes 

University students around the world 
are astir with demands for greater 
participation in determining policies and 
regulations which concern them as mem- 
bers of the educational hierachy. With 
that in mind, Gaudeamus, newspaper 
voice of Stockholm University's Student 
Association took a look at the student's 
lot in Sweden today and reported as 
follows : 

Since 1964 university regulations in 
Sweden have provided for student rep- 
resentation on departmental and cur- 
riculum committees. 

The Departmental Committees are com 
posed of the whole body of faculty mem- 
bers in a particular department and it 
is their duty to handle questions per- 
taining to their department. 

The Curriculum Committees are com- 
posed of three faculty representatives, 
three student representatives, a repre- 
sentative for instructors and teaching 
assistants, and a chairman who is us- 
ually the dean of the school. These 
committees are the re.spective faculty's 
body for discussing que.stions related to 
"the organization and content of the 

The question is, can this kind of 
representation be called '"student in- 

Both the Departmental Committees an 
the Curriculum Committees are advis- 
ory bodies to the chairman and the 
faculty and have no decision makking 

Do the teachers, on the whole, lis- 
ten to what the students say? Isn't 
it es.sentially administrative questions 
which are taken up, questions which 
f)erhaps do not have so much rele- 
vance to what many understand to be 
more important problems of curriculum 

As long as these committees have 
existed the policy of the separate un- 
iversity student associations has been 
that the right of decision should be 
transferred to the committees them- 
selves. As of now, decision-making on 
the question of the establishment of 
course literature ha.s been passed from 
the faculties to the Curriculum Commit- 
tees. The chairman doesn't usually dis- 
pute the point of view of the Depart- 
mental Committee, though in theory this 
can happen. In general, faculty members 
take a favorable view of student par- 
ticipation, but the degree to which stu- 
dent suggestions are accepted depends 
on the ability of the student represent- 
atives to present their arguments. 

Students and teachers often have dif- 
ferent viewpoints of a problem because 
of their divergent experience. This isn't 
necessarily because the two groups are, 
so to speak, on opposide sides of the 

luly 31, 1968 

examination paper. All Swedish univer- 
sities are supported by government funds 
which means that the appointment of 
teachers, physical facilities, appropria- 
tions, course scheduling, etc., are regu- 
lated by a cumibersom administrative 
system with many bottle-necks and a lot 
of red tape. The faculty's spirit of 
reform often cools as a result of this, 
and they become resigned to the "tight 
budget," "limited resources," "lack 
of funds" and all the other beautiful 
phrases which mean NO MONEY. The 
student representatives who have less 
experience of "channels" often have a 
more optimistic attitude, and there are 
numerous examples of student initiative 
achieving results. 


Departmental and Curriculum Com- 
mittees are parts of the present sys- 
tem. In many ways the stystem could 
be improved. For example, an attempt 
could be made to establish follow-up 
studies which would prevent interrup- 
tions in the educational process; or 
course requirements could be altered 
so that they made nwre sense peda- 
gogically speaking. 

Things could be changed in other 
respects as well. It could be suggested 
to the Office of the Chancellor of the 
Universities, which is the final author- 
ity for curruculum, that the emphasis 
and required literature in a particular 
course of study be changed. There are 
obstacles, of course, to such changes: 

a) those imposed by the "limited 

b) a natural desire on the part 
of the Office of the Chancel- 
lor of the Universities that a 
particular course of study be 
paralled at all the universities. 

c) the National Board of Education 
must have its say about course 
requirements for the Philoso- 
phy Magister degree, i.e., the 
B.A. in teaching. 

d) and there is the traditional 
idea of how long a particular 
degree should take to com- 

Such questions are approached more 
appropriateley by the student associa- 
tions. Both the individual university stu- 
dent associations, and the National Un- 
ion of Swedish University Students have 
in many respects significant influence 
with regard to educational policy. Part- 
ially this is because the associations 
are waystops for all educational leg- 
islature introduced, and partially be- 
cause the associations constitute a ra- 
ther extensive apparatus for surveying 
the educational scene. 

Current investigations are followed and 
the associations' own committees dev-

delete the new programs from the bill. 
Erleborn said the fact that only plan- 
ning funds are authorized for the new 
programs is proof that the government 
does not now have the resources or the 
finances to start new projects. "I think 
we are just holding out a false ho{K} to 
people by saying here is a fine new pro- 
program that we authorize, and then we 
do not fund it," he argued.

Both bills provide for a number of 
new higher education program.s and 
projects, but in most cases the new pro- 
grams would not be operative until 1970 
because of the financial problems now- 
facing the federal government. The new- 
programs, which would receive only 
planning funds this year, include the 
"Networks for Knowledge" projects, co- 
operative education and public .service 
education programs, and remedial serv- 
ices for disadvantaged students. The 
Senate bill includes a program to aid 
graduate schools and a clinical training 
project for law students.

Woodrow Wilson Grant 

UMass has received a $200 grant 
trom the Woodrow Wilson National Fel- 
lowship Foundation for financial assis- 
tance to fellows who have enrolled for 
first year graduate study. 

Checks totaling $1,637,000 were sent 
;(p 72 university graduate schools in the 
L nited States and Canada. This will 
IK the last year that the foundation will 
make these supplementary grants. 

For the past 10 years, with grants 
from the Ford Foundation totaling $52 
niilLion, the fellowship foundation has 
paid tuition and fees and a stipend for 
•he living expenses of 9,873 Woodrow 
Wilson Fellows for their first year of 
graduate study. The foundation also 
ruade supplementary grants to the fel- 
iows' graduate schools, 75 per cent of 
each to be used for fellowships to stu- 
dents who had completed their first 
\ear of graduate study. One-fourth of 
each supplementary grant could be

Grad Record Exams 

Anyone preparing himself for admis- 
sion to graduate school should be sure 
ho has fulfilled all the requirements in 
advance. Among other things, many 
graduate schools now require scores 
from the Graduate Record Examina- 
tions. This test is offered on October 
l-'6 and December 14 in 1968 and on 
January 18, Februrary 22, April 26, 
and July 12 in 1969. Individual appli- 
cants should be sure that they take the 
test in time to meet the deadlines of 
their intended graduate school or grad- 
uate department or fellowship granting 
agency. Early registration also ensures 
that the individual can be tested at the 
location of his choice and without hav- 
ing to pay the three dollar fee for late 

The Graduate Record Examinations 
in this program include an Aptitude 
Test of general scholastic ability ar»d 
Advanced Tests of achievements in 22 
major fields of study. Candidates deter- 
mine from their preferred graduate 
schools or fellowi>nip committees which 
of the examinations they should take 
and when they should be taken.

New Grad Program 

A graduate program in regional plan- 
ning for the UMass department of 
landscape architecture has been estab- 
lished by the UMass Board of Trustees. 

One of the few graduate plarming 
courses in the U.S. to be built around 
the regional planning and natural re- 
sources concept, the program will lead 
to a Master of Regional Planning de- 

The program has been designed in 
response to changes in the U.S. since 
World War II. Population growth, in- 
creased leisure time, recreation demand 
and resource problems have brought 
about an awareness of regional planning 
as a basic tool for social development. 
Former emphasis was on the city as 
the main center of planning attention. 

The UMass course will require 50 
hours of graduate work and two years 
in residence, plus a summer internship 
in a public or private planning office 
t)etween the first and second years. In 
addition to core courses in planning, 
students will be offered a wide range of 
electives, including statistics, municipal 
government, urban sociology, ecology 
and physiography, regional economics, 
data processing and others.

The city of Holyoke manufac- 
tures a variety of products, from 
tires to fabrics. Except for 
Mt. Holyoke College and a small 
area west of the downtown area, 
it is one big polyethnic slum. 

It was here in 1963 that AIM 
was founded — the Association for 
Improvement of Minorities. The 
group was formed mainly to aid in 
the solution of unemployment and 
housing problems, but it wasn't 
long before a children's summer 
program became an integral part 
of its structure. 

"Step Up" is the name of the or- 
ganization's four-week sunmaer 
day camp, and one might say that 
its motto is : "Make the most of 
their wonder years." All of the 40 
participating children are in 

AIM'S school year tutoring pro- 
gram ; all live in dilapidated build- 
ings in slum areas ; all represent 
the diverse minority factions 
which still feud in a tum-of-the- 
century fashion. Among them are

Here, between Northampton and 
Holyoke, the Connecticut River is 
not so polluted. Here, between a 
quiet college town and a hot, noisy 
industrial center lies luscious 
green scenery. And it is here that 

many children see "the country" 
for the first time. 

Once a week the children are 
bussed to the town of Ashf ield 
where they spend the day under 
the supervision of 35 volunteer 
staffers. Some elect to go for a 
swim; others prefer to stay on the 
banks of the river and experiment 

with arts and crafts, play games, 
or tell stories. Nature study is 
usually high on the list of activi-,, 
ties particularly for those who ■^^- 
have never before had the 
experience of catching a toad. 

One of the more popular games 
is the American pastime — base- 
ball. And it was this game that I 
discovered a group of children 
playing on the third floor of a 
tenemant porch in a deteriorating 
section of Holyoke. Perhaps they 
were trying to escape the heat 
of the concrete below, or maybe 
they were more intrigued -with th( 
idea of playing such a game in a 
four-foot-wide area. Whatever the 
reason, the scene struck me as 
being rather pathetic.

group of children were also play- 
ing baseball on the concrete- 
amidst trash and weeds. The base- 
ball games at the "Step Up" camp 
are in marked contrast to those of 
the Holyoke slums. 

One of the volunteer instructors 
from Amherst is Dr. Richard 
Gordon, who is a summer research 
fellow at UMass. His original 
goal was to offer the program 
some quantitative but elementary- 
nature studies. He came equipped 
with microscope and slides, but 
soon discovered that the blood 
circulation of minnorws was far 
less meaningful to the children 
than was catching larger fish that 
could be eaten for supper. 

While most volunteers would 
rather not man the stringer and 
dig the bait, each Tuesday found 
Dr. Gordon ok the dock baiting 
hooks and transferring fish and 
lines to stringers. Only because 
each one of his charges was re- 
quired to wear a life jacket in 
order to fish was the number of 
simultaneous fishermen kept to a 
reasonable number. 

The children are divided into 
three age groups: six/seven year 
olds, eight/ten year olds and 
10/12 year olds. Besides being fui! 
for the children, the fishing ex- 
perience is enlightening in many 
ways. One of the white instructors 
from suburbia, upon stooping to 
pick up a catfish, was cautioned 
by a litte black child to be 
extremely careful since catfish 
have three separate fins that are 
made of hard, sharp bone. They 
are capable of slashing open a 
man's wrist or hand. Then one of 
the black instructors demonstrated 
how to hold and handle the fish. 

But the problems of Holyoke 
are not new. They are the prob- 
lems of modem America. They are 
the same problems of unemploy- 
ment, rising crime rates, poor 
health and sanitation, exploitation 
of the poor, and poor education. 

AIM and "Step Up" are tiying 
to meet these problems head-on in 
Holyoke with positive action. 
Their two community centers offer 
tutoring, adult education and job 
training, courses in Negro history, 


/ / / / 





assistance in attaining housing 
and employment, social service 
referral, and recreational activi- 
ties. An overall objective is to 
build family unity and pride.

GOP Shapes Up 

The Grand Old Party Rot off to a 
roaring start in Miami this week with 
the adoption of a middle of the road plat- 
form and a barrage of campaign sjieeches 
and gimicks by leading contenders. 

The platform pledges the party will 
pursue peace negotiations, will not accept 
a "camouflaged surrender", will build up 
the South Vietnam forces so there can 
be a "de-Americanization" of the conflict. 

On domestic matters, the platfoim lays 
down a broad program of aid to the cities, 
to the disadvantaged but with strong 
emphasis on the need for respect for the 
law and for greater inclusion of private 
business in the job of rebuilding the 

Representatives of former Vice Presi- 
dent Richard M. Nixon and Gov. Nelson 
A. Rockefeller of New York played a big 
part in working out the compromise 
language on the touchy Vietnam issue 
and both presidential contenders indi- 
cated they were reasonably happy with 
the document. 

Ronald Reagan and Nelson Rockefeller 
began to move in the hopes that they can 
deny Richard Nixon a first-ballot victory 
at the Republican National Convention. 

The two governors whose constituen- 
cies, like their politics, are continents 
apart, were launching separate maneuvers 
aimed at collecting just enough delegates 
to assure that Nixon will not reach the 
magic figure of 667 on the first roll call. 

The manager of Reagan's California 
delegation, political operative F. Clifton 
White of New York, held a news con- 
ference to admit for the first time that 
an organization has been set up to win 
the nomination for Reagan, and that the 
former movie star will be meeting with 
a dozen or, more delegations in the com- 
ing days. 

And Rockefellers aides, most of whom 
were just now arriving here, worked 
hard to capitalize on the latest develop- 
ment in the battle of the polls. 

Highlights of the GOP, middle of the 
road platform are as follows: 

Cities CrisLs — Pledges a vigorous effort 
to tremsform the cities by encouraging 
state and local efforts, a greater involve- 
ment of private enterprise and a complete 
overhaul of the "jumble" of Federal pro- 

Crime — Promises improved support of 
law enforcement and correction proce- 
dures, a vigorous drive against narcotics 
and drugs, "total commitment" to the 
fight on organized crime, including the 
use of court -supervised wiretaps and 
eavesdropping devices, and control of fire- 
arms provided legitimate acquisition and 
use is not impaired. 

Youth— Supports the vote for 18-year- 
olds but thi-ough state rather than 
Federal action; promises a shorter period 
of vulnerability to Selective Service and 


eventucil reliance on a voluntary force. 

Human Development^ — Pledges drastic 
revision of welfare and poverty programs 
to encourage self-reliance, endorses state 
and local development corporations, 
promises overhaul of job programs and 
tax credits to promote training. 

Economy — Promises "fiscal integrity," 
an attack on inflation, sound monetary 
policies to promote growth, an end of 
Government "over-involvement" in the 
economy and balanced use of savings 
from Vietnam for tax reduction and 
domestic needs. 

ForolR^n Policy— Offers foreign aid only 
to nations in urgent need when domestic 
needs pennit it; favors East-West trade 
only when Communist nations prove by 
"actual deeds" that they seek peace; pro- 
mises a fair hearing to business and labor 
threatened by foreign competitors; urges 
an end of the Middle East arms race but 
promises continued aid to Israel; opposes 
recognition of Communist China at 

Vietnam -Argues that only news 
leadership can overcome many failures; 
promises to strengthen South Vietnamese 
forces to permit "progressive de-Ameri- 
canization" of the war; supports negotia- 
tion for a settlement based on .self-deter- 

National Defense Promises to restore 

Pollsters Agree 

Pollsters George Gallup and Louis 
Harris issued a joint communique 
Thursday stating that New York Gov. 
Nelson A. Rockefeller moved to an 
"open lead" over both his possible 
Democratic opponents. Vice President 
Hubert H. Humphrey and Sen. Eugene 
J. McCarthy (D Minn.) 

A race between Richard M. Nixon 
and either of the two Democratic con- 
tenders would be "extremely close," 
the pollsters said. They predicted it 
would hover around the 50 50 mark 
with Gov. George C. Wallace of Ala- 
bama perhaps holding the balance of

The Wrong Questions 

The following i» a comment on the 
GOP Convention by James Reston of 
the N.Y. Times: 

The Republicans are here on the na- 
tion's business, and the nation has .some 
hard questions for them to an.swor. Who 
has the best chance to unite the Ameri- 
can people? Who can put together a 
coalition of forces in the nation and 
the Congress that can deal effectively 
with the convulsive problems of the 
age? And specifically, who has the best 
chance to make peace in Vietnam and 
reduce the burden of military expendi- 
tures so that the urgent internal pro- 
blems of the country can be adequately 

The striking thing among the Repub- 
lican delegates now is that most of them 
are asking party questions rather than 
national questions. Who has work-xi 
hardest for the Republican party?-^ 
Obviously Richard Nixon. Who is the 
most vivid new personality on televi- 
.sion? Obviously Ronald Reagan. What 
is the most popular issue of the cam- 
paign? Obviously "law and order" in 
the American cities. Who is ahead in 
the rxipularity polls? Who knows? 

Many delegates are thinking about 
the big nationals questions about the 
future, about who can get a maiority 
in the nation and the Congress, about 
arms control in relation to budgets for 
the cities— but many more are thinking 
about party and parochial questions; 
about the past, and personality, and 
ideology, and about the race problem 
rather than the causes of the race prob- 

At this point in the election, there- 
fore, the immediate thing is not the 
delegates' answers but their questions. 
The Republican party controlled the 
White House for 60 of its first 100 years 
because it asked the central national 
questions and was in tune with the 
spirit of the time. It has been out of 
IK>wer for 28 of the last 36 years because 
it gave the voters the impression that 
it was putting party questions ahead of 
national problems.

There will be no auditions anyone 
who wants to sing and who wants oth- 
ers to hear them will be welcome. 


Public Outcry 


Th* StateBmaii 

A group of delegates to the Democratic 
National Convention announced the form- 
ation of a Commission of Democratic 
Selection of Presidential Nominees. 

Gov. Harold E. Hughes of Iowa, the 
commission chairman, told a news con- 
ference that the commission would work 
to insure an "open" convention here 
Aug. 26 to 29. 

He said that what he termed a mount- 
ing public outcry against a "closed" 
convention, with the Presidential nomi- 
nee selected by politicians rather than 
the popular will, had contributed to for- 
mation of the commission. 

The outcry sprang first from the camp 
of Senator Eugene J. McCarthy when it 
appeared that his rival. Vice President 
Humphrey, had the inside track with 
delegations selected by politicians as 
contrasted with delegates selected in 

Governor Hughes told the news con- 
ference at the Conrad Hilton Hotel that 
the commission had been formed out of 
a "desire to have a free and open con- 
vention, to allow individual delegates as 
much latitude as possible in reflecting 
the gross-roots sentiment of the people 
they represent, and to be frank and com- 
pletely open with the American people." 

Soviet Reporter 
Colls The Shots 

A Soviet commentator said Sunday 
Richard M. Nixon's Vietnam policy "dif- 
fers little from the concept of (Presi- 
dent), Johnson." 

Writing in the Soviet government news- 
paper Izvestia, M. Sturua said "some 
'dove' notes" had been heard in a state- 
ment read on behalf of the former vice 
president in the Republican National 
Convention Platform Committee. 

But, Sturua added in a dispatch from 
Miami Beach, a loser look reveals that 
"the strategy, as we see, is old." 

He did not comment on the Vietnam 
policies of New York Gov. Nelson A. 
Rockefeller or California Gov. Ronald 
Reagan, but implied it did not matter 
much who won the presidential nomina- 

Sturua said the convention would pro- 
duce "much noise" but nothing else. 

Of Human Life 

American Catholics got different mes- 
sages in church Sunday atwut the 
Pope's ban on artificial birth control. 

In Washington's St. Matthew's Cath 
edral, Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle urged 
people to obey the Pope and not lis- 
ten to protestinig theologians. 

But in Alabany, NY., the Rev. Ber 
nard J. I^rnion told his congregation 

luly 7. 1968 

at Holy Spirit Church, "We must lis- 
ten to other voice.s in the church and, 
in the final analysis, it is a personal 

Later, the Association of Washington 
Priests reaffirmed its position favoring 
the right of Catholics "to responsibly 
practice birth control." 

Their declaration was signed by 52 
of the association's 100 members and 
asked for a dialogue on the Issue a- 
mong priests. Cardinal O'Boyle and 
the whole community of the archdi- 

At churches in Western Massachu- 
.setts, a letter from Christopher 
J. Weldon of Springfield was read ur- 
ging the people to read the encyclical 
itself "and not to be satisfied with 
quotes from the encyclical or comments 
and observations made by others." 

At a news conference during the 
week. Bishop Weldon had said he be- 
lieved the encyclical "carries the Pope's 
infallible authority," and that any 
Catholic who does not obey "faces great 
spiritual peril." 

Archbishop William E. Cousings of 
Milwaukee likened the papal edict to 
a Supreme Court decision and said 
"the action of the court is upheld un- 
til a new decision is made." 

In EVetroit, the Rev. John Finnegan, 
pastor of St. Patrick's said at Mass 
that the encyclical was not infallible. 

"The Holy Father simply reaffirmed 
his personal opinion", the Rev. Fin- 
negan said. "In a way. he is saying 
he is sort of old-fashioned, but he is 
standing by the attitude of the church 
of centuries . . . rwthing has changed. 
A lot still depends on the individual 

In Boston, the Rt. Rev. Christopher 
J. Griffin, chaplain of the Massachu- 
.setts State Senate, speaking at Our 
Lady of Railway chapel condemned 
"pseudo-intellectuals" who think they 
"know in 15 minutes what it took Pope 
Paul five years to study." 

On Sunday Pope Paul defended his 
encyclical banning artificial contracep- 
tion, but admitted for the first time 
that he understood the opposition which 
the ban touched off throughout the 

At the same time, the Pope showed 
no signs of relenting. He declared the 
decision in his contested encyclical 
"Humanae Vitae" Of human Life "is 
derived from the laws of God." 

Speaking to thousands assembled at 
his summer residence for his Sunday 
blessing, he said he had received mes- 
sages of gratitude and support from 
all classes of people in all parts of 
the world - more than he had ever 
received for a papal document. 

The speech added to an impression 
that the 70 year old Pontiff was increas 
ingly worried about the explosion of 

attack and criticism against the en- 

Criticism also came from the secular 
press. The N.Y. Times commented: 

"Pope Paul VI has been among the 
most passionate pleaders for peace and 
for human dignity in the modern world. 
It is tragically ironic, therefore, that 
this Pope may be most remembered 
for an encyclical that can only serve 
to strengthen the twin evils of war and 
poverty against which he has so cour- 
ageously spoken out ■ that is, the new 
encyclical letter, "Of Human Life," 
which a papal spokesman has correctly 
described as a rigoroas reaffirmation 
of the traditional .stand" of the Church 
against birth control. 

Local Poet Makes Good 

Two poems by Amhenst College soph- 
omore Danny Kaufman appear in 
this month's issue of Seventeen Mag- 
azine. They are: "Against Analysis," 
an example of Danny's "prose poetry" 
"atmospheric" poems. 

Danny, 19, who formerly wrote only 
prose, now claims "poetry lends itself 
more effectively to the things I want 
to say." Futhermore, he admits, "Any- 
time I write prose it turns into prose 

"I hate to write within boundaries 
. . .to be structured," Danny insists. 
In "against analysis which warns 
of "the danger of being too cerebral ' 
Danny abandons meter for meaning. 
"Isn't there something ugly in the pen- 
etration of beauty for meaning, in the 
searching out of perfectly formed leaves 
for, the meaning of perfection?" asks 
the teen poet, who admits he used to 
worry "how far my intellect would carry 

In "Remember" EXanny concentrates 
on creating a mood. "Do you remem- 
ber when we sat. together on the huge 
branch, of an oak. and, your hand 
in mine, we carved initials in the 
wrinkled bark, and wondered how long, 
they'd last?" introduces this reminiscent 
love poem to a fictional girl. "Most 
of my fKjetry Ls written to imaginary 
people," Danny remarks. 

The son of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew 
M. Kaufman, Danny is a 1967 grad- 
uate of the Great Neck North Senior 
High School, where he served as ed- 
itor-in-chief of the yearbook, literary 
editor of the newspaper and President 
of the Civil Rights Committee. At Am- 
herst, Danny writes for the college 
literary magazine and is a member 
of the photography club. A music en- 
thusiast, he is working toward a de- 
gree in Fine Arts with an emphasis 
on photography. After college he would 
like to work as both a photographer 
and writer "to achieve self-expres- 
sion l^ combining the two art forms."

Sunrise Magazine: Rise 
And Fall of Provincialism 

"All that Ruth, DiMaggio and Mantle 
were to the Yanks, Russell is to the 
Celtics. Perhaps more." Dartmouth half- 
back Gone Ryzewicz "runs like a wraith 
from White River." Frank Malzone's 
bowed legs were "the Arch of Triumph." 
Harvard's Jack Fadden was "America's 
greatet;t trainer." 

Joe Mullaney's success with Provi- 
dence basketball was aided by "an in- 
dispensable though invisible guiding 
hand — a rewarder of dedication and 
prayer, a Christmasy kind of unpaid 
mentor and friend, moderator and coach, 
recruiter and strategist." 

Such was the message of a medium 
called Sunrise magazine, a monthly cele- 
bration of New England's picturesque 
sports scene. The glossy, 50-cent maga- 
zine was the brainchild of a gentleman 
named Arthur G. Sampson, a Boston 
publisher who had spent over 40 years 
in sports as an athlete, coach, sports- 
writer and fan. He could see every 

Top-Flight Product 

He told the magazine's readers, "New 
England, where much of the sports 
activity in this country originated, pro- 
vides year round sports action that does 
not get the exposure it deserves . . . Our 
plan is to provide the best sports maga- 
zine ever published." Chauvinism crept 
into many of the stories, but the style of 
the magazine was as slick as the paper 
it was printed on. Strictly high-grade. 
The photography and art work were 
sensitive, the lay-out was painstaking. 

Sunrise gave its stable of sports- 
'• s the space to prove they were, 

Ijr.-M of all, writers and, second of all, 
sportsmen. They were given their free- 
dom, unencunit>ered by daily deadlines 
and unspoiled by the recurring typo- 
graphical errors of the newspapers most 
of them worked for. The magazine, I 
think, stood against a trend of news- 
paper ecnomics that now severely limits 
the personal touch of feature stories on 
the average sports {»ge. Sunrise was so 
personal, it was downright folksy at 
times. And of course it may have been 
America's first provincial all-sports ma- 

You may be wondering why you may 
never have even heard of it, so it must 
be said simply that Siuirise was bom 
in January 1966 and died in April 1967 
and has not risen from the dead since. 

"It was a little bit nuts," said Arthur 
Sampson during a recent trip to UMass. 
A bald, quiet fellow who seems to accept 
the good and the bad with equanimity, 
he declined to reveal how much his own

wallet withered with the demise of Sun- 
rise. He did say the magazine ended in a 
debt of $30,000, "It cost us $25,000 each 
issue with no money to promote it. To do 
it right it would have cost us $30,000 a 

Bird-Watching, Too 
The idea first occurred to him little 
more than a decade ago as he noted the 
dwindling press coverage of college 
sports. His regular trips to alK>ut 40 col- 
leges throughout New England con- 
vinced him that there was plenty of un- 
tampered material to be had. Sunrise, 
however, was not limited to the colle- 
giates. It covered everything from the 
Bruins, Celts and Sox to lobster-catch- 
ing in Maine or, believe it or not, a 
zebra hunt in Boston Public Gardens. 
Or the Harvai'd crew, a lacrosse player 
from Brown, a cross-country runner 
from UMass, a track star from Bowdoin, 
the Brodie Mountain ski trail, bobcat- 
hunting and even croquet. One story, 
explaining the wonders of bird-watch- 
ing, was adorned with a large photo of, 
get this, a Cape May Warbler. Depart- 
ment columns dwelled on, among other 
things, boating and yacht racing, camp- 
ing, hunting, fishing and nostalgia a 
feature called "Days Before Yester- 
days" that recalled New England sport's 
history with the flair of Ralph Edwards 
on "This Is Your Life." 

Sampson thought advertisers through- 
out the northeast would jump to the aid 
of a regional magazine rather than 
waste money on nation-wide circulation. 
Soon, however, he found he had to cut 
the advertising rate of $1000 a page in 
half. Then he had to give away 20.000 
copies of each of the first four issues to 
keep the advertisers satisfied with the 
circulation. Meanwhile, Sunrise was 
borrowing m >ney like a Latin American 
country, and later some of the sources 
of priomised funds hedged on supporting 
a magazine that, for one reason or an- 
other, was sold only by subscriptions 
until the sixth issue was put on the 
newsstands in June. In each, Samp- 
son depended upon the same old adver- 
tisers, including of course a clam chow- 
der company, to keep the operation up- 

Cents of Time 

"It needed about $1 million, or it need 
ed to be part of a successful organiza 

tion," he said. "No matter how good a 
magazine is, it takes three or four years 
to become establishcxl. It takes time to 
build up ads. You've got to plan to lose 
money for three years. I thought it would 
jell, but I couldn't put in something 
I didn't have. Take Siwrts Illustrated. 
They never would have succeeded with- 
out Time, Life and Fortune behind them." 

Thr magazine's troubles were explain 
ed to Sampson by concerned readers who 
said it was just too good for its own good. 
Almost all the letters were laden with 
praise for the magazine. Vince Lombar- 
di wrote that it was "the best sports 
magazine I have seen or read. . .There 
is only one criticism I can make. It is 
too got)d for just New England." So the 
Sunrise situation was compared to one of 
its ads picturing Wilt Chamberlain pois- 
ed to enter a Volkswagon, with the 
words: "They said it couldn't be done. It 
couldn't." The pen, then, is mightier 
than the sword but not than the penny. 
Sampson could tell you. He said he would 
not give the magazine another try unless 
he had a million dollars. 

In light of the 1967 Impossible Dream 
and the rejuvenation of the Bruins last 
season, it may be conjectured that Sun- 
rise began a year too early to cash in on 
the pennant crazy appetite of the Sox 
Sampson wrote, early in 1966, a nine 
page "capsule" history of the Red Sox. 
beginning at the time the manager of the 
1906 Boston team committed suicide by 
drinking carbolic acid after the team 
finished in place. "It could be that 
thj Rid Sox who drove Stahl to .self- 
destruction were in truth not .so dismal 
fans or the demands of new Bruins fans. 

Jersey St. Jokers 

Another article praised Dick Williams' 
predecessor, Billy Herman, to the hilt 
and said, that after the poor leadership 
of Johnny Pesky, "Never have I seen 
such a pampered, selfish, spiritless, stu 
pid, busher for a major league 
ball club as the Red Sox of 1965. . .mal 
contents and malingerers. . .the Jakers 
of .Jersey Street " Then it warned that if 
Herman's contract were not renewed af 
ter the 1966 sea.son, ::The Red Sox will 
continue to operate in half baked panic, 
subject to the winds and whimsies of 
daily public reaction, and thus go on 
floundering near the bottom of the 
league." But Herman was discarded and 
something else happened. 

The Stoiesman 



As for the Bruins. Sunrise wondered, 
in 1966, "Will the Bruins ever get bet- 
ttr? " After noting that Bobby Orr. then 
the 17-year-old star of the Oshawa farm, 
was the "No. 1 hope for the future," 
Sunrise concluded cryptically that des- 
pite continuing gate success, "Soon New 
England's most successful failure either 
will cease failing, or stop succeeding 
despite those failures." 

Encouraging letters poured into the 
Sunrise office in Boston. The letters in 
the regular reader column were so con 
sislently laudatory that, Uke those in the 
I'arade magazine supplement that cor- 
rodes the Sunday paper, they could have 
been written by Sampson himself if he 
had had the inclination or the ego. Many 
of them came from scattered college 
sports information directors, eager to 
embrace a new publicity vehicle. In fact, 
the Harvard publicist himself was on the 
staff and another contributor was an ex- 
publicist at Dartmouth 

Almost Verbatim 

Sometimes, it appeared. Sunrise was 
at a loss for words. In the first i.ssue, a 
lesume of the articles said an offering 
by Sampson "is one of the most mean- 
ingful, distinguished pieces he has ever 
turned out. This enlightening article 
epitomizes Sampson, the man as well as 
the writer. He writes always fi"om pro- 
found knowledge, keen analysis, unswer- 
mg responsibility and trenchant hon- 
esty." The entire introduction to the 
magazine was repeated almost verbatim 
in the second and third issues. Only the 
title of Sampson's articles changed, and 
each was called "one of the most mean- 
ingful, etc." 

Sampson's critical review of the Ivy 
League's spring football ban was printed 
iwice. a few months apart, with differ 
<'nt titles. The criticism of the Ivy 
League was well founded, except for 
Sampson's assertion that the Ivies need 
the extra 20 days of practice more than 
any other ollcge teams because of their 
High academic standards and an aid pro- 
ilrnm based on need and overall qualifi- 
cations. Throughout other articles on 
the Ivy League in Sunrise, the very real 
power of the Ivies to exert their opulent 
and prestigious recruiting muscles was 
never mentioned. 

Sunrise rebuked the NCAA for estab- 
lishing the 1.6 rule in 1966. Under the 
rule, schools cannot offer athletic schol- 
irships to students unless they are 
shown by lest scores to have a "pre- 
dicted minimum parade point average of 
1 liOO" and students are not eligible to 
< "inpete unless their average, either ac- 
iiimulative or for the previous academic 
.vear, is at least 1.600. According to Sun- 
'■is«'. the rule "infringed on institutional 
•lutonomy." It added, "Furthermore, as 
"ly educator worth his PhD kjiows, 1.6 
^ ly at Harvard, Williams or Colby, is 
not the same as 1.6 at Tulsa, Houston 
<"■ Arizona." 

No Gestapo 

liut as every sportswriter worth his 
"inplimentary tickets knows. Harvard, 

luly 7, 1968 

"The Red Sox will con^ 
tinue to operate in half' 
baked panic.** -Sunrise 

Williams or Colby is not bound by the 
NCAA to schedule Tulsa, Houston or 
Ai-iozna. Actually, all the NCAA was 
saying was that an athlete who enjoys 
tlie privilege of performing in NCAA 
competition and thereby attending, in 
most cases, the college of his choice 
gratis, should deserve to be in college 
under standards that almost every 
school considers lower than •below- 
normal. ' And it might be added that the 
NCAA does not enforce laws like the 
Gestapo. As a matter of fact, most 
schools consider an athlete to be on sure 
footing if he merely scored a 1.6 in his 
last semester, and he's in fine shape 
fiscally as well. Tell that to a student 
on an academic schoarship. The NCAA 
reguatoins for the cause of uniformity, 
I think, could avoid loop-holes by set- 
ting a minimum college board score for 
athletes, e.g. 1000 on math and verbal 
combined. Or can you fix those too? 

Such criticism, however, wjjs not Sun- 
rise's meat, or beat. The only "" 
was that Brockton's Rock Marciano 
wore a toupee. The magazine, neverthe- 
less, did delve into the curiosities of the 
Yankee Conference and the scholarship 
limit it began in 1964. "There's only one 
thing wrong with the 20 Formula," said 
Sunrise. "All the member colleges of the 
Yankee Conference weren't created 
equal, and they promise to become even 
less equal in the years ahead." The 
story said that by last year, the Confer- 
ence would have reached either stability 
or "an insoluble impasse." Although the 
league has indeed reached an impasse, 
there appears to be a solution from the 
UMass standpoint -either quit the Con- 
ference or stop dishing out the limited 
figure of $25,000 in free rides to 

Strong Comment 

Noting that UMass .schedules in foot- 
ball include Dartmouth, Boston College 
and Holy Cross, Sunrise asked, "Is it any 
wonder some people in Amherst are des 
perately unhappy with the 20 Formula?" 
The magazine also collected one of the 
most piercing quotes ever uttered on the 
subject by President Lederle: "I'm not 
prepared to say that this would be the 
end of the road for us in the Yankee Con 
ference. But over a period of time some 
changes might have to be made in the 
Conference." Sunrise understated that U- 
Mass athletic director Warren McGuirk 
"is not in favor of losing." Then it quot- 
ed former UConn president Homer Bab 
bidge: "I don't see how any university 
can maintain a responsible athletic pro- 
gram unless it is part of a conference— 
and. even more importantly, a confer- 
ence of institutions that have similar 
goals and values." Certainly, some con 
cerned parties at UMass would take is- 

sue with his remarks. 

Some of the magazine's other contribu- 
tions to the knowledge of the New Eng- 
land sports fan bear autlining: 

that the success of Providence Col- 
lege in basketball resulted from the ef- 
forts of Coach Mullaney and, yes. an act 
of Providence. One might ask, apart 
from the firmament, ju,st haw many clas- 
ses did Jimmy Walker and Dexter West- 
brook attend? Westbrook quit early in 
his college career and at last look was in 
the ABA. but Walker stuck around an- 
other two years and is now in the NBA. 
proving once and for all the value of a 
college education. 

The recruiting was not "high - pres- 
sure." Mullaney told Sunrise, but sud- 
denly here came Wilkens. Egan, Had 
not, Thompson, Ernst, Flynn. Blair. Ben- 
edict. Walker. Westbrook and Riordan. 
The coach recalled for the writer the day 
Bill Blair arrived at Providence and his 
mother asked. "Mr. Mullaney. do you 
know of James Walker?" And after Mul- 
laney contacted Walker at a North Caro- 
lina prep school, he also asked the head- 
ma.ster. as if ordering a regular coffee to 
go. "Do you have any size on the club?" 
The answer: "Oh. yes. we have a 6 8 
center from New York named West- 

Nabbed in the Act 

— that Middlebury ski coach Bobo Shee- 
han was a friend as well as mentor to 
his athletes. One winter, according to 
Sunrise, a group of his skiers were re- 
turning from a race on Wildcat Mountain 
and stopped their car to heist a case of 
beer they spotted cooling in the snow in 
front of a tavern. As one of them said, 
they were nabbed in the act by the tav- 
ern keeper, who pondered summoning 
the cops, but Coach Sheehan came to the 
rescue, drank beer with the owner until 
2 a.m. and "got us off the hook." 

— that in the 1962 NBA draft, the Celts 
debated on Havlicek or Chet Walker.. 
Auerbach. the coach, leaned toward Wal- 
ker but the late Walter Brown, the own- 
er, leaned toward Hondo. Sunrise added. 
"It is believed that Brown was interested 
in drafting a white player, since the Cel- 
tics already had .several Negro stars. 
When Havlicek goes in as sixth man he 
breaks up sport's first notable all Negro 
starting team . . ." 

— that "Rational people have long rec- 
ognized that All America teams have sig- 
nificance only as a star-spangled salute 
to all the hundreds of superior players by 
singling out 22 as symbols." Actually, 
very few football fans are rational." 

— that Greg Landry had leaned toward 
Holy Cross or Pitt until UMass .sent Ted 
Schmitt to visit the high school star in 
Nashua. N. H. 

The last issue included a brief inter- 
view of what would be contained in its 
"next issue." Leading the preview was 
the query, "Will Bo.ston ever get a new 
stadium?" Chances are. Sunrise could 
rise again in five years and still not ans- 
wer that. But surely many people would 
appreciate the effort. 


xLooking Askance ati 

The Week in Sports 

2.7 Million Putouts Ago 

If Ron Hansen looked surprised when 
he was told of the statistics of unas- 
sisted triple plays, he wasn't the only 
one. The Washington Senators are in 
last place, and Hansen's play was a wel- 
comed respite from the dreariness of 
the cellar. 

It had been 41 years, 50,000 games 
and 2.7 million putouts since an unas- 
sisted triple play had been made in the 
majors. But even Hansen's play couldn't 
help the hapless Senators as they were 
scalped by the Cleveland Indians, 10-1. 
Hansen became the eighth player to pK?r- 
form the feat and it came about after 
Dave Nelson singled and Russ Snyder 
walked. Both runners were going with 
Bruce Howard's 3-2 pitch when Joe 
Azcue hit a line drive to the left of Han- 
sen. He speared the ball for one out, 
stepped on second to retire Nelson and 
tagged Snyder coming down the base- 
line from first. 

The play had not occurred since 1927 
when it happened twice within 24 hours. 
Shortshap Jim Cooney of the Chicago 
Cubs made one against the Pittsburgh 
Pirates on Memorial Day, and first 
baseman Johnny Nuen of the I>etroit 
Tigers pulled one off against the Cleve- 
land Indians the next day. 

Hansen will remember that play for 
the rest of his life, but he is probably 
trying to blot out the memory of strik- 
ing out four times in that game. 

The Senator and Chicago White Sox 
managers also pulled off an odd play at 
the end of the week. Hansen was re- 
swapped for Tim Cullen a second base- 
in''" Hansen had worn a White Sox uni- 
for five seasons previous to his 
Senator stint. Hansen was sent to Wash- 
ington for Cullen last February. The 
same day the two players exchanged 
uniforms they met in a game Friday 
night which Washington won 11-6. 

Midsummer Night's Dream 

There might have been a few surprises 
in the baseball and political realm of 
events, but no one was very surprised 
when the world champion Green Bay 
Packers defeated the College All-Stars, 
34-17. It was just another ho-hum vic- 
tory for the invincible Packers. The col- 
legians only claim to fame rested in 
the fact that they had at least man- 
aged to score against the Packers, some- 
hing their predecessors hadn't done in 
three years. 

Both All-Star touchdowns came on 
fourth down plays in the second half. 


Gary Beban, the UCLA quarterback 
headed for the Washingtt)n Redskins, 
threw to Southern Cal's speedster Earl 
McCulloch for the first score. Greg 
Landry, UMass' own headed for the De- 
troit Lions den, threw a 24-yard scor- 
ing pass which hit McCulloch for a TD 
in the fourth quarter. 

Bart Starr's passing was too much 
as he completed three touchdown passes 
to Carroll, and in between he used Boyd 
Dowler and Elijah Pitts as receivers. 
The pros admitted that the All-Stars 
were tough; they scored both of their 
touchdowns on fourth dtnvn plays. 

Larry Csonka, the muscle bound ba<?k 
from Syracuse, received the MVP award 
for the All-Stars. Greg Landry had three 
votes and Beban had two in the ballot- 

How Sweet It Is 

Jack Nicklaus broke his no-win 
drought of eight months duration and 
won the Western Open with an 11 under 
par 273 for 72 holes on the tough 
Olympia Fields North Course. And no 
one even seriously challenged Arnie's 
Army as the General posted his 25th 
tournament win. 

Nicklaus went into the final round 
with a comfortable four stroke lead 
aided by 65's which tied the course re- 
cord in the first and third rounds. The 
victory was a long time in coming, and 
Arnie lingered over its sweetness like 
champagne. He had finished well in the 
National Open, the Masters and the 
British Open. 

Nicklaus finished three strokes ahead 
of Miller Barber, followed by Bob Stan- 
ton, and PGA champion Julius Boros. 

Much Ado About Nothing 

In spite of Ken Harrelson's grand 
slam homer, Jim Lonborg's 6-1 win over 
the California Angels, Jose Tartabull's 
fine stand-in performance for the in- 
jured Reggie Smith, the Red Sox lost 
more than they won last week. As each 
week goes by the Impossible Dream be- 
comes even more impossible. The pen- 
nant surge of the Sox last year was 
made pKJssible through the combined ef- 
forts of a healthy team and a sharp 
manager who was willing to yank a 
pitcher on the first hit he gve up. This 
season, the Sox don't have either one. 

A series of errors opened the flood- 
gates for the Yankees as they won 7-3. 
All the scoring came in the ninth after 
Bell had two out, but when Bell started 

to lose his stuff, Williams left him in 
too long. 

Joe Foy failed to snag a ground ball 
hit by Rocky Colavito. The ball hit Foy 
on the wrist. WiUiams forgave Foy, but 
who forgives the managers? 

Lonborg's return may be too late for 
the Red Sox, but his win was not of the 
class he had last year. The best pitching 
for the Sox came last week from two 
ex-National Leaguers, Ray Culp and 
Juan Pizarro. 

Harrelson who has been given super 
star status after his grand slam has hit 
more game winning home runs in two- 
thirds of a season than Ted Williams' 
homers ever won in a full season. Wil- 
liams' high was nine in 1956. Stonefin- 
gered former first baseman Dick StUcU-t 
is the only Red Sox player of late to 
match Harrelson's 10. But Stuart's were 
spread out over an entire season. 

It was a long home stand, 11 games 
in seven days, six games in three days. 
But it's over, and the Red Sox opened 
their road trip with a 2-1 tenth inning 
victory over the Chicago White Sox. 

Glancing Askance 

Bob Foster scored a TKO over Spring- 
field's Charlie Polite after only "^ sec- 
onds in the third round. The" bout was 
called after the referi^ee warned Foster 
of illegal holding and noticed a gash un- 
der Polite's eye which was spouting 
blood. The bout heralded Western Mas- 
sachusetts' attempted comeback for 
boxing in the Coliseum, and the gate 
put Caro Sports Enterprises just into 
the blfick. The next scheduled bout is 
between Eddie Owens and Holyoke's 
Jimmie McDermott for the light heavy- 
weight title of New England . . . Two 
of football's Elagles, Philadelphia, not 
Boston, flew the coop last week after 
failure to come to terms with the man- 
agement over a salary. Gary Ballman 
and Tom Woodeshiok left the camp to 
join the ranks of at least 49 other pro 
football players who are looking for 
jobs. Bart Starr's back up man, Don 
Horn, had to stash his Green Bay Pack- 
ers uniform in the locker room to don 
Uncle Sam's uniform for six months ac- 
tive duty at Fort Campbell, Ky . . 
George Culver of the Cincinnati Reds 
pitched the third no hitter of the sea- 
son and promptly celebrated by crying. 
Culver had been sick all day and went 
to the mound with a numb foot, the 
result of a shot of novocaine to ease 
the pain of an ingrown toenail. Victims 
of the no-hitter were the Philadelphia 
Phillies. They scored their one run on 
a double error, an infield out and a 
sacrifice fly . . . Ken Harreslon was 
swooning at the Fens over Tom Mur- 
phy's gold Nehru jacket before the ball- 
game. The Hawk solicited the name of

Double $ Urged 

Berkeley, CaUf. (GPS) - - Federal 
aid to higher education could be doub 
led- -from $4 billion to $8 billion an- 
nually- -to help the nation's college 
afford college and to train more doc- 
tors, teachers, and researchers, accord- 
ing to the Carnegie Commission on 
Higher Education. 

In its first major public statement 
Crancgie Foundation for the Advance- 
ment of Teaching, the Commission says 
expenditures is now between one fifth 
the fcdearal share of higher education 
and one-fourth, but, will have to move 
to about one third by 1975. The com- 
mission is headed by Clark Kerr, form- 
or president of the University of Cali- 

The best immediate means of federal 
support is the strengthening and aug- 
mentation of programs already under- 
way at the fedeal level, the commis- 
sion's statement says. These include 
grants and loans to individual students, 
support of institutions to expand and 
strengthen areas of particular national 
concern, and extension of support for 
specific research, construction, and spe- 
cial programs. 

The statement lists a number of ex- 
t^ansion needs for higher education and 
singles out three as "the most urgent 
national priorities" between now and 

-Provision for one million additional 
students who are now barred for fin- 
nacial reasons from attending college. 

-Training facilities for 60 per cent 
more medical students to serve the 
nation's health needs. 

Places for 60 per cent more 
Ph. D. candidates to provide the teach- 
ers and researchers required to keep 
pace with the explosion of knowledge. 
The commi.ssion announced it is pre- 
paring a detailed proposal on federal 
<:id to higher education which will be 
available prior to the next session of 
Congress, but decided to release the 
general statement now "because of the 
urgency of the subject and our wish 
to stimulate the widest possible con 
sideration and discussion." The state- 
ment is being given to delegates re- 
sponsible for drafting platforms at both 
major political conventions. 


Preservation Pact 

Czechoslovakia's Communist Party 
chief, Alexander Dubcek, told the na- 
tion Sunday night that its reform gov- 
ornment had been preserved at the 
Bratislava summit meeting. He assured 
<^ochoslovaks that there was no secret 

luly 7. 1968 

sell-out to the Soviet bloc's hard-lin^ers. 
"We are determined to continue on 
the road we have taken," he said. "For 
the nation of this republic there is no 
other way." 

Dubcek spoke on television to explain 
the joint declaration signed by the par- 
ties of the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, 
East Germany, Hungary, Bulgaria and 
Poland in Bratislava Saturday. 

"Fears in this direction are really 
without substance, " Dubcek said. 

"I am pleased to tell you that yes- 
terday's talks . . . were successful and 
fulfilled our expectations" he said. 

"We are returning with the convic- 
tion that we must continue consistently 
on the road on which we have embarked 
in January. . .for which our people have 
decided themselves, sovereignly and 

"We believe that an atmosphere of 
quiet and confidence has thus been cre- 
ated for our future successful work. 
Our delegation fulfilled its important 
international task," he said. 

The declaration, which followed a 
fortnight of intense pressure on the 
Czechoslovaks, did not mention the na- 
tion's liberalization policy. But it guar- 
anteed the right of every party to de- 
velop along its own lines, "taking into 
account the national characteristics ind 
oonditions" of each country. 


War Of Nerves 

The war of nerves between the admin- 
istration and the steel industry— the bit- 
terest since President Kennedy forced 
the last general increase to be rescinded 
in April. 1962— grew hotter as the day 
wore on. 

The 5 percent across-the-board in- 
crease launched by Bethlehem on Wed 
nesday less than 24 hours after agree- 
ment on a costly new labor contract for 
the industry was denounced by Cabinet 
members and senators. _^ 

President Johnson hastily summoned 
congressional leaders to the White House 
to confer on the issue. 

Chairman Arthur M. Okun of the Coun- 
cil of Economic Advisers fired off wires 
to a dozen major firms that have not 
increased prices requesting them not to 
do so without first conferring with the 

During the day Inland Steel, the na- 
tion's sixth largest producer, and Pitts- 
burgh Steel, ranked 14th. announced 
general increases roughly equivalent to 
the 5 percent formula established by 
Bethlehem, No. 2 in the industry. 

Eariier Republic Steel, the third larg- 
est had come out with a AV2 percent 
general boost and ARMCO. fifth largest, 
said it would announce an across-the- 
board rise Friday.

President Johnson branded the Beth- 
lehem action as "unreasonable" on Wed- 
nesday and said it would bring "dire 
economic consequences" to the nation if 
the rest of the industry followed suit. 

But the President indicated he had no 
quarrel with "selective" increases made 
by U.S. Steel, the biggest producer, on 
most tin mill products. 

Then U.S. Steel followed these up 
Thursday evening with other selective 
increases— 7 dollars a ton on structural 
shapes, H piles and plates. These pro- 
ducts plus tin mill items account for' 
roughly 25 percent of industry volume. 

Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. 
Fowler told newsmen Thursday the Beth- 
lehem formula, if adopted by the whole 
industry, would have a more serious 
effect than the 1962 increase because of 
Thursday's inflationary climate. 

"One of the vices of across-the-board 
increases is that it is a non-competitive 
action" which ignores market conditions 
for particular products, he said. 

In Washington, the UPI reported Sen. 
Wayne Morse (D-Ore.) said the steel 
industry "recognized only the sign of 
the ddllar." and accused it of "putting 
profits above patriotism." He called for 
a senate probe. 

Sen. Philip A. Hart (D-Mich.) ques- 
tioned how the industry could raise 
prices and still complain to Congress 
about foreign competition. 

House Speaker John McCormack (D- 
Mass.) said the consensus of the legisla- 
tors was "that this across-the-board in- 
crease is unjustified and unwarranted." 

Senate Majority Leader Mike Mans- 
field called on leaders of the steel in- 
dustry to "raise their eyes above the 
balance sheets of their corporations and 
look at the balance sheets of American 
public interest." 


Hershey Rides 

Like Shylock after his pound (rf flesh 
Draft Director Lewis B. Hershey has 
prodded local draft boards to get busy 
reclassifying college students who have 
graduated, the Selective Service System 
said last week. 

But at the same time, Hershey told 
the boards not to reconsider deferments 
before the student has actually gradu- 

Last February, under last year's new 
draft law and at the advice of the Na- 
tional Security Council, Hershey announc- 
ed there would be no more deferments 
for graduate study except in the fields 
prescribed by the law — ^medicine and the 

Local boards have had time for only 
one or two of their monthly meetings 
since the spring graduations, hardly 
time enough for large-scale reclassifica- 

On July 26, the national draft head 
quarters said Thursday, Hershey sent a 
memorandum to each of the state head- 
quarters and 4,087 local boards, spelling 
out the treatment of college graduates. 

After clarifying some technical inter- 
pretations of the law and regulations, 
the memorandum added: 

"It appears that some local boards 
are reopening student classifications a 
month or more prior to the date of grad- 
uation and that some boards are continu- 
ing the IIS (college student) classifica- 
tion for a 12-month period without re- 
gard to the date of graduation. 

"Student classifications should be re- 
opened when the student ceases to be 
in the status for which he was deferred." 

Even if the reminder speeds up re- 
classification, it may not lead to im 
mediate induction of the new graduates, 

Hershey announced earlier this month 
that preinduction physical examinations 
were being suspended during August and 
September as an economy measure. 


A Cose For Saucers 


Six scientists insisted before Congress 
that unidentified flying objects were fit- 
ting subjects for serious investigation, 
but complained that attempts at ra- 
tional study had been "laughed out of 

Several witnesses before the House 
Committee on Space and Astronautics 
urged Federal support for a huge pro- 
jjram to collect information aimed at 
finally settling the debate, which has 
gone on for decades. 

Testimony was serious and talk of lit- 
tle green men was taboo, while the 
term "flying saucer" was mentioned 
rarely, and then only in whispers. 

Yet some bizarre anecdotes were read 
into the record, including the attempt 
by a group of Australian kangaroo 
hunters using a spotlight to communi- 
cate with a hovering U. F. O. "even 
though the men didn't know Morse 

Witnesses also tended to shrug off 
such questions as to why, if there real- 
ly have been thousands of such objects 
sighted by humans, the supposed saucer 
crews had failed to make cxmtact with 
their observers, and why some physical 
evidence of these many flights has not 
been produced. 

Dr. James E. McDonald, a University 
of Arizona meteorologist, told the com- 
mittee that the world's scientific com- 
munity "tended to discount and regard 
as nonsense" reports of sauces sight- 
ing.s, adding that serious attempts at 
studios had been "laughed out of court." 

Dr. McDonald, who related the kan- 
garoo hunter anecdote as well as sev- 
eral other stories on sightings, insisted 
that U.F.O.'s "are entirely real."

Hamp Plans Drug Center 

Hampshire County High Sheriff John 
F. Boyle said last week that a federal 
grant will be sought for a halfway house 
and expanded rehabilitation program 
here for drug addicts. 

Key Found in Law 

The announcement followed a visit to 
the Hampshire County House of Correc- 
tion by Alan Simpson of the National 
Institute of Mental Health. New York 

Simpson told jail officials that the key 
to the rehabilitation of addicts lies in the 
Narcotic Addict Rehabilitation Act of 
1966, now being put into effect across the 

According to Sheriff Boyle. Simpson 
was here to acquaint local officials with 
the law and familiarize himself with 
problems and treatment methods in this 

Another meeting with Simpson is plan- 
ned to include clergymen, teachers, phy- 
sicians, school guidance counselors and 
private residents. 

Merton Burt, who with Boyle has play- 
ed an active role in initiating a program 
to help addicts here, said, "We hope to 
establish a halfway house. We'd like to 
get an old farmhouse up in the hills and 
use rehabilitated addicts in the program 
to help others. We have found that for- 
mer addicts communicate very well." 

Burt said that, over a three-year peri- 
od, officials estimate approximately 100 
addicts have come under the rehabilita- 
tion program. 

In recent months a center at North- 
ampton State Hospital for rehabilitation 
of narcotics addicts has been authorized. 
The national program, according to 
Simpson, will complement the state re- 
habilitation center.

Murphy's tailor in Los Angeles and 
plans to have one made the next time 
he's on the coast. Just think if the Red 
Sox were going to be in the World Series 
this year, Harrelson and Cards pitcher 
Bob Gibson, who sports a mufti when 
off the miound, could turn the series in- 
to a first class fashion show . . . Bruins 
goalie Eddie Johnston was stopping 
rumors last week like pucks in a hockey 
game. Johnston claims that he was not 
the Edward Johnston of Montreal who 
was fined $100 for assault in New Jer- 
sey, although the man involved had the 
same address and birthdate as the 
Bruins goalie. Johnston's alibi was that 
he was 3,000 miles away in Burbank at 
Red Kelly's liockey school . . . I^eter 
Fuller had a winner, and it wasn't a 
Cadillac. Fuller's horse Royal Harbor 
won the $4,000 Gilford Purse at Rock- 
ingham Park. Before the win was 
posted, Royal Harbor had to withstand 
a claim of foul by the rider of the sec- 
ond horse, Fernando Font. Font charged 
that Royal Harbor veered-in on his 
mount Hired Soldier in the run through 
the stretch, but the race fihns failed to 
support the claun . . . After pocketing 
$177,000 purse money for winning the 
Indianapolis 500, Bobby Unser was 
signed for a role in a Universal produc- 
tion. When it came to determining 
Unser's fee, he asked for his regular 
hourly rate, which does not seem un- 
just. But Unser averaged $59,000 an 
hour for his Indy-run last May. To 
break into the movie world, Unser had 
to settle for less . . . Charley Pasarell 
finally shook his reputation as he out- 
lasted Clark Graebner in a five set 
match. Pasarell has been notorious for 
running out of steam in a long match, 
and this was the first time in four years 
he had won a five set match. It was 
also the first time this year that he 
beat Madison Avenue executive Graeb- 
ner. Graebner has changed his tennis 
image to keep in line with his grey 
business suit image. He's not throwing 
his tennis racket anymore at the risk 
of losing a business deal ... In a poll 
of more than 1000 pro football players 
taken by the slick Sports magazine, the 

players picked the Ijos Angeles Rams 
to beat the Green Bay Packers for the 
title. The Oakland Raiders were picked 
to defeat the Jets for the AFL title. 
The NFL's Eastern Conference champs, 
according to the poll, will be the Cleve- 
land Browns in the Century Division 
and the Dallas Cowboys in the Capital 
Division, with the Cowboys picked to 
win the conference title over the 
Browns. In the West, the Rams are ex- 
pected to capture the Coastal Division 
title and go on to defeat the Packers, 
the Central Division champs, and then 
the Cowboys for the NFL title . . . The 
new Massachusetts gun control law will 
go into effect Jan. 1, 1969. The new law 
is designed to keep guns out of the hands 
of recently convicted felons, narcotics 
offenders, habitual alcoholics and ment- 
al patients. The best advice offered is 
to apply for your identification card 
well in advance of the New Year's Day 
deadline. Massachusetts officials hope to 
keep down the backlog of applications 
and avoid a situation similar to the one 
in New York as the result of the Sulli- 
van Law. An applicant in that state 
cannot hope to get his license in two 
weeks with the 10,000 applications al- 
ready waiting to be processed. The 
American public has been led to l^elieve 
by certain members of the communica- 
tions media that the nation is crying for 
gun control laws which are not forth- 
coming because the NRA is wining and 
dining the legislators. But can this real- 
ly be the case? The NRA does not have 
a membership of criminals, but of John 
Q. Public, the people who are supposedly 
flooding their Congrgessmen with an 
avalanche of mail requesting stricter 
laws . . . Denny McLain, the winningest 
pitcher in the American League, now 
has 22 victories under his money belt. 
He missed becoming the earliest 20- 
game winner in the major league by 
nine days. McLain could become the 
first 30-game winner in the majors 
since Dizzy Dean posted a 30-7 record 
with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1934. 
McLain has lost only three games and 
has beaten every team in the American 
League at least once for the fourth 
straight year. No other opponent in the 
league has done that. Rubber armed 
ironman Juan Marichal of the San 
Francisco Giants has a 20-4 reoopd. 
Marichal completed his 16th straight 
game and moved to within seven of the 
1904 record set by John W. Taylor, also 
of the, you guessed it, St. Louis Cards. 
The American League's leading batter 
is Rod Carew of the Twins who has an 
unbelievable average of .296. Yes, it is 
the Year of the Pitcher.

New Party Gains Momentum 

By Tonn Miller 

College Press Service foui- weeks ago in Chicago, the 

drive to form a new politic;il party for 

..f.isons disenchanted with E.stablish - 

i iK)litics already is becoming a 

i ,al)lp [Kjlitical force. 

The New Party, cis it will appear oi- 

fic.aMy on state ballots requiring a 

,ry j>arty name, is working in 29 

irui the District of Columbia to 

that the iK>!itical un- 

ii> the presKk-ntial campaign of 

i.;iiU' MiC'arlh\- will not die af- 

Domofiatic convention.

works with the Institute for Policy 
Sludies, a leftist think-tank here, wa.s 
iuxjuitted last month in the Spock-Col- 
I'ln draft resistance case. 

The most immediate goal of the New 
Party is to collect the required number 
of sii^natures to get a sjKit on the No- 
vember ballot in those states where the 
(leadline has not already passed. In some 
slates less than a thousand si^natui-es 
are retjuiretl, but the requirements g<m- 
erally are much more severe. 

In states where the filing dates are 
already past or where it is virtually im- 
|K)ssiblo for a new party to get on the 
ballot, the New Party is preparing le- 
Kiil action based on constitutional 
grounds. Attorneys will complete pre- 
liminary work on the challenges this 

So far, the New Party avoided 
.some states, j)ending the outcome of 
other movements which could develop to 
its advantage. For example, in states 
where the Ptvice and Freedom Party or 
similar groui« already are on the bal- 
lot, the New Party is trying to Wijrk 
out some typo of coof)erative arrange- 
ment. And the New Party is playing it 
<ozy with some Southern .states where 
les^al challenges to the validity of the 
ri-.'ular Democratic Party are still 

n a recent interview, Raskin said the 

^^ Parly w.xs formed because both 

{Hililical parties represent an es- 

laiihshed way of life which tends to re- 

•nerale il.self year after year, and 

ither party Ls dealing with the basic 

problems facing American .society. Riis- 

kin said Ixjth the Democratic and Re- 

ibiican parties tend to repress, rather 

than encourage, new ideas imd new 

«)lutions to problenxs. 

lijiskin also thinks most voters are 
ilisenchanted with the P'stablishment 
and are no longer stix>ngly tied to a 
major party. A strong new party is es- 
.sontial, he says, l)ecause "if we can- 
not force a realignment of political 
structures, there will be mass violence." 

The New Party does not have an of- 
ficial candidate yet, but most of its 
backers cansider this a minor point. 
Raskin and other leaders of the move- 
ment have initiated talks with aides to 
Sen. McCarthy, Niw V<nk Mayor John 
Lindsay, and Sen. Gcori.;e McGovern (D- 
S.D. ). Although none of them have ex- 
pressed an official intere>t, Maskiii is 
not worried about finding a eandi<lale 
after the Democratic and Republican 

During the interview, Raskin casual- 
ly mentioned Supreme Court Justice 
William Douglas ixs a lonsshot candi- 
date. Raskin calls Dr. Benjamin Spock 
"an authentic American folk hero," but 
says he probably can be ruled out as a 
candidate because his draft resistance 
case is still ponding in the api)eals 

"We are through with the politics of 

I>ersonality," emphasizes when 
the names of possible candidates are 
mentioned. "What we want to empha- 
size first is the issues." 

By stressing a ix)sition on the crucial 
problems facing s(x"iety, Raskin thinks 
the New Party has gained a consider- 
able amount of support. He admits that 
a lot of support, esjiecially from the lib- 
eral politicians who cannot afford to 
break with their party, Ls below the 

The New Party is depending on wide- 
spread support from the black commu- 
nity, and, ironically, from some sup- 
IK)rters of former Alabama Gov. George 
Wallace. Raskin says the New Party 
can "pull the rug out from under George 
Wallace with a direct api^eal to his 
supiK)rters." He explains that many 
Wallace backers are not racists, but 
simply are completely alienated and 
lurnwl off by the Federal government. 
New Party position paix>rs will empha- 
size that the party wants to put the 
p(x>ple more in control of their govern- 
ment, hence their personal destinies. 

If McCarthy should win the Demo- 
cratic nomination- although Raskin ap- 
parently c<>nsiders this prosi)ect highly 
unlikely- the strategy for the New Par- 
ty will be made on a state-by-state ba- 
sis. In some states, Raskin says, the 
New Pai'ty could remain on the ballot 
to give McCai'thy extra leverage, and 
possibly to bolster local candidates.

A New Cottfrontatm Seems Inevitable 

By Susie Schmidt 

College Press Service 

Columbia University, three months after 
its history-making student rebellion, is 
a quiet and calm looking campus again. 
It still squats like an intrxider in the 
busy streets and roaring subways of 
New York City; the two-block walk 
from Broadway to the grassy center 
of the campus is still like one be- 
tween two worlds. 

The radicals - the SDS. the Strike 
Coordinating Committee - who brought 
the university to a halt in May are 
still there, although they are not now 
engaged in active rebellion against the 
university. Most are sjiending the sum- 
mer in and out of the courtroom (the 
trials of the hundreds of students ar 
rested in May are just now beginning) 
and planning for the fall semester, 
when most involved students and fac- 
ulty members say another confrontation 
with the administration is inevitable. 

The center of activity this summer 
is the Phi Epsilon Pi fraternity house 
adjacent to the campus on 114th St., 
where a red flag (symbolic of an- 
archy) flies in place of the fraternity 
crest. SDS has sublet the building to 
ihouse its Liberaition School - an at- 
tempt to develop an alternative to pre- 
sent Columbia education. 

The school opened June 24 with 40 
curriculum "topics" in its "catalogue." 
It drew teaching resources from the 
University faculty and from New York 
CJity itself. But "teaching" is not really 
relevant to the Liberation School's way 
of doing things. Its philosophy is that 
learning, research, and action cannot 
be roparated as they are by the univer- 
sity's brand of "higher education. " Re- 
searcr must lead to, and is inseparable 
from, action - radical action in response 
to social problems. 

"Classes" at the Liberation School are 
of two kinds "raps" or Research 

Action Projects, and Strategy Seminars, 
topics are current, mosUy political, 
ranging from "Socio- Economic Functions 
of the University'" (how the needs of 
the system shape educational ias-titu- 
tions and individuals) to "The Draft " 
to "Guerrilla Film Making." A great 
number of the "raps " are "courses" 
in the skills needed for student re- 
volution newspaper production, organ- 
ization, and operation of a neighborhood 
radio station, alliance building between 
student radicals and labor. The semin- 
ars are largely a study of revolution 
itself the Russian Revolution, Revolu 
tion in Latin Omerica, the Black Liber- 
ation movement. 

At the Liberation School seminars are 

"coordinated,"" not taught; the object- 
action. Thus students studying "Tenant 
Organizing'" will not only talk about it 
they will go out into Momingside 
Heights and organize the tenants of 
slum buildings against landlords. Stu 
dents of "Street Theatre"' create plays 
to perform on comers. 

Opinions on the school's success vary. 
A few (rf the students are disappoint 
ed at its total rejection of scholarship. 
Many of the courses - notably thase 
which deal with more intellectual sub- 
jects like Marxist Economics - stop 
ped meeting regularly and fell apart 
after the first week. Action comes first 
in any case - on July 26 when Mark 
Rudd's and other leaders" trials began, 
the building was nearly deserted, and 
classes are more often than not diverted 
to mineographing leaflets for a new 
demoastration or collecting bail money. 

SDS staffers who man the poster- 
furni.sihed offices, like red-haired Will 
Stein, think the school is not going so 
well for quite another reason: not en- 
ough action-result. They started it out 
as a vehicle for getting things done, 
but most of the time seminars lead 
mostly to talk. "Research is all right," 
Stein says, "but not if it doesn't lead 
to something happening - then it's 

The School's seeming inability to serve 
as anything but a loose rallying point 
for Ojlumbia's radicals Ls indicative of 
their current state of nund. They are 
heavily factionalized -■ not so much by 
opposition groups fighting with one an- 
other AR by their divergence. Some want 
to organize in the black community; 
some want to concentrate on fighting 
and trying to remake the University 
itself: some, like Stein, want to work 
with labor groups to form student-work- 
er alliances like those in France. 

The results hoped for are the same: 
a major overhaul of .social systems 
that make the rich richer and the poor 
poorer; c\)mmunity (cultural as well as 
legal) control of community in-stitutions, 
destruction of a hypocritical and re- 
pressive sy.stem of law enforcement and 
justice. But agreement on the means of 
reaching those goals, and even their pri 
ority, is hard to get. And without that 
agreemont, that sense of '■solidarity" 
and common purpose, the Movement at 
Cx>Iumbia cannot hope to accomplish 

The student radicals know they want 
another confrontation with the Univer 
sity administration and Gray.son Kirk 
this fall, but they don't yet know what 
form It will take. Other observers a 
gree that the war at Columbia Ls by 

ive is turning research into concrete 
no means over. The administration has 
claimed to be dealing with the stu- 
dents* spring demands and h a .s 
been urged by the undergraduate f.ic 
ulty to make at least some needed re 
forms in the university's structure and 
its philosophy of dealing with students. 
Whether it has done so in fact can be 
(and often is) debated. Faculty commit 
tees are working this summer preparing 
proposals for reforming the university's 
deci.sion making procedures and discip- 
line structures, but whether or not they 
will be accepted by the administration 
and the trustees is in doubt. 

Many radical students assume, and 
many others are beginning to assert, 
that the admini.'-tration doi's not intend 
to modify the inflexible posture toward 
students who demonstrated in 
spring's massive transfusion of police 
force during the strike, and subsequent 
insistence on full prosecution of all 
student participants. 

Evidence supporting this assumjrtion 
has been accumulating; not the least 
of it is the resignation of two prom 
inent Columbia administrators in tho 
past .several weeks. Two weeks ago 
Associate Dean of the undergraduate 
men's division Alexander Piatt announc- 
ed his resignation, reportedly because 
of differences with the administration 
over its treatment of student demands. 
And last week Dean of the Graduate 
School of Journalism Edward Barrett 
said he would also leave Columbia. He 
would not comment on his rea.sons, but 
in May he had publicly criticized the 
the univei-sity's handling of the student 
strike and offered suggestions for future 

Regardless of factionalism among the 
students ar>d even fxjssible concessions 
from the administration, however, some 
futher uprising this fall seentis ineut 
able. Unrest at Columbia goes deeper 
than the constrution of a gym and the 
war in Vietnam, though issues 
play a symptomatic role. The masses 
of .students who revolted in the spring 
were not all SDS members; the num- 
bers who would sympathize with and 
participate in a new strike or .some 
other action this fall are even greater. 
They are angry about the university's 
refusal to allow students any pjirt in 
its decision making process; they are 
angry about their inability to change, 
or even effectively complain about, 
their university's role as slum land 
lord, [>olice power, and De- 
partment research branch. The faculty, 
for the mast part, agrees that they have 
been wronged; thase who did not or 
iginally changed their minds when they 
saw police beating students bloody la t 

Unless the administration makes ser 
ious and deep-seated changes, giving the 
students a power base within the un 
iversity, the students will attempt once 
again to take it.

The 'No Chance' Candidate 

It is thus that U.S. News & World 
Report refers to Eugene McCarthy, im- 
mediately adding a big BUT and going 
on to say that "regardless of what, 
comes of his White House bid, Eugene 
McCarthy has already changed the shai>e 
of American politics for this year." 
Anyone who has been able to do 
that deserves respect — and most of 
all, one would think, the respect of the 
former supporters of Robert Kennedy, 
who were wont to say that their man 
and McCarthy adliered to the same 
principles, on that basis urging McCar- 
thy to yield gracefully to Kennedy. 
Now that Kennedy is dead, one might 
have expected his followers to go over 
en masse to McCarthy, but politics is 
not that simple, nor usually that prin- 

Instead, a section of the Kennedy 
backers have implied that they are in- 
terested in someone like Sen. George 
McGovem. to displace McCarthy and 
Humphrey and so resolve the contest 
which has riven the Democratic Party 
and threatens to disrupt it futher. Now 
Senator McGovern is a good friend of 
The Nation. He was one of the prin- 
cipal speakers at our Los Angeles con- 
ference in February, 1967, along with 
Senator McCarthy. We have the highest 
regard for him. But McCarthy is the 
candidate, the fight has been waged 
for him, the investment in money and 
manpower and enthusiam is in him, and 
such efforts are diversionary. In the 
same category are attempts to fly a 
kite for someone like Tom Watson of 
IBM and even futher out, flirtations 
with Rockefeller. 

This brings us to the outlines of a 
major phenomenon: Why is a section - 
it Ls only a section — of the Robert 
Kennedy entourage so opposed to Mc- 
Carthy? Galbraith. Sutton. Goodwin. 
Nickerson. Bickel and others have sup- 
ported McCarthy with energy and enthu- 
sism. Another faction, however, appears 
to be obdurately opposed. 

The explanaitions offered by the pun- 
dits, columnists, inside-trackers, et al.. 
do not explain very much. What they 
come down to is personal animosities 
of one kind or another, which surely do 
little credit to those who harbor them 

in a situation as difficult and dangerous 
as that which now confronts the coun- 

One is told that the two Kennedys 
never liked McCarthy, that McCarthy 
was tactless in not visiting the hospit- 
al on the night or morining of the as- 
sassination (is it customary to obtrude 
oneself on the family and friends of a 
dying man?), that he did not send con- 
gratulatory messages after Nebraska 
and Indiana, that he campaigned too 
hard in Oregon and California, that he 
doesn't understand power, that he runs 
a limp organization, etc. None of these 
objections has enough substance to call 
for rebutal. 

It is perhaps significant, also, that 
such objections are voiced most strong- 
ly by those Kennedy backers who did 
their utmost to keep Robert Kennedy 
out of the race. Maybe this was good 
advice (events have proved it so. in a 
fortuitous sense), but Robert wanted to 
run and it was McCarthy's condidacy 
that enabled him to run. He never 
had any reason to suppose that Mc- 
Carthy would then step aside, so what, 
really, was McCiarthy's offense? And if 
it is, groundlessly, construed as an of- 
fense, what makes it so unforgivable? 

The Nation shares Alexander M. Bi- 
ckel's sentiments, expressed in an elo- 
quent commimication in The New Re- 
public (July 20. 1968). Robert Kennedy 
declared his candidacy because he saw 
what was at stake and could no long- 
er remain out of the action, once Mc- 
Carthy had set the example. The same 
reasons that impelled Robert Kennedy 
to make his bid should now impel his 
followers to rally around the McCarthy 
standard - not because of McCarthy 
personally but for the things he stands 

As for drafting EJdward Kennedy as 
Humphrey's rurming mate, the idea is 
inherently distateful, and probably will 
strike the Senator in that light. It would 
be a wretched memorial to Robert. 

One of the oddest features of the cam- 
paign is the failure of the media, by

It's How 
You Play 
The Game 

A Political Satire 

By Stan Levco 

The selection of Spiro Agnew as Rich- 
ard Niocon's nmning-mate is shrouded 
in mystery. How Nixon could byjxiss 
such steUar Vice-Presidential possibili- 
ties as Reagan, Volpe and Stassen has 
been plaguing political analysts for the 
last week. Now, for the first time, the 
real stoi-y of that fateful night in the 
smoke-filled room can be told. 

Advisor: Well Dick, who do you want 
for a running-mate? 

Nixon: How about John Lindsay? 

Advisor : Out of the question. Lindsay is 
one of the most popular men in poli- 
tics. He'll make you look bad. 

Nixon: Then how about Romney, Percy 
or Hatfield? 

Advisor: Aw, c'mon Dick. Those guys 
have been winning elections for years 
now. A Presidential candidate has to 
look better than his running - mate. 
Those guys will make you look sick. 
What you need is someone who will 
appeal to an ethnic minority and will 
make you look good by comparison. 

Nixon: I know. How about Ed Brooke? 

Advisor: I'ni afraid not, Dick. Brooke's 
too hot to handle. 

Nixon: John Volpe? 

Advisor : You're kidding. 

Nixon: I give up. Who do you think will 
be good? 

Advisor: Listen Dick. Spiro Agnew Ls 
perfect. He'U sew up the Greek votes 
for us. 

Nixon: How many Greeks are there in 
the United States? 

Advisor: Well, only about 80 of voting 
age, but Agnew's appeal to an ethnic 
minority is not his only attribute. He 
used to be for Rockefeller, so the lib- 
erals don't hate him. He takes a tough 
stand on riots, so he doesn't offend the 
the Conservatives. And, most impor- 
tant of all, he's the only Republican 
we can think of who's more mediocre 
than you. 

Nixon : Sounds great. Just one question. 

Advisor: Shoot. 

Nixon: Who's Spiro Agnew? 

Athletic Discrimination? 

Dear Sir: 

This past summer there appeared in 
Sports Dlustrated. (July 8. 1968) a five 
part article on the black athlete m 
American sports. The author, Jack 01 
son, devoted one article on college ath- 
letics and described the surprisingly 
large amount of subtle discrimination 
and exploitation of the black athlete 
on American campuses today. 

After finishing the article, I was forced 
to ask the inevitable questions. Is niy 
university also practicing invisible dis- 
crimination? Is the black athlete ex- 
ploited to the point where his academic 
role is definitely secondary to his per- 

formance on the field% Is the black 
athlete a virtual 'slave' to his coach? 
Is his social freedom suppressed on 
campus? What really is the situation 
on the UMass campus% Are we forced 
to answer affirmatively to these que.s 

As a member of a varsity athletic 
team I am familiar with the Athletic 
Department and our varsity teams. 
However, I have been unable to re- 
solve the question in my mind. Perhaps 
token representation on the major teams 
adequately camouflages the situation to 
most - or does it?

and large, to "dig" McCarthy. One 
suspects that they don't want to, that 
rationality and honesty somehow rub 
them the wrong way. But McCarthy 
ambles along in his quiet way, artful- 
ly and skillfully needling his opposition, 
making very few boners, showing a 
fine sense of timing and an instinct for 
the right word. 

All the while, the lovers of phony 

drama complain that McCarthy is noi 
emotional enough, that he doesn't tear 
a passion to tatters as a politician should 
Yet he keeps gaining in the polls His 
chances are. as Mary McGrory .says, 
"preposterous." yet "excellent." Maybe 
those who thought him too good for the 
American people will be proved wrong 
after all. But if so, he wall owe little 
to those followers of Robert Kennedy 
who kept their backs turned on him.

»5 "■'»«!«>» icSt 

by Ronald J. LaBrecque 

The image of a festival that used to 
be, drew 70,000 persons to Newport 
this year. In hopes of feeling the elec- 
tricity generated by the music of Dy- 
lan, Donovan, Guthrie, Baez and others 
in past years, the barefooted, bellbot- 
tomed, blue work shirted, army jacket- 
ed mass of youths with an equal num- 
ber of more conservatively dressed 
counterparts interspersed with a small 
number of deeply tanned Newport Res- 
idents fresh off the Yacht poured into 
Festival Field for each concert at a- 
bout $4 a head. 

I was only there Friday night but ac- 
cording to various reviews, the four 
evening concerts followed a general 
theme of non-excitement with Sunday 
night's tribute to Woody Guthrie the 
only exception. 

"The audiences . . . gave the distinct 
impression of suffering through the eth- 
nics in order to hear their favorite folk 
performers." Unfortunately this state- 
ment by Richard Anthony of the Col- 
lege Press Service has a certain amount 
of truth to it. The concert Friday night 
started with the Onward Brass Band 
direct from New Orleans. This is the 
kind of group that would escort the 
body to the grave and play some rous- 
ing spirit lifting tunes coming back 
from the cemetery. They were an iron- 
ically appropriate herald for what was 
to come. 

It was a good start, though. Things 
went downhill from there which might 
perhaps be a little unfair because Arlo 
Guthrie provided a couple of volts of 
what people had come for. Back to the 
beginning. The Onward Brass Band was 
followed by Bess Hawes who was the 
start of a boring show. Clad in Ging- 
ham, she treated the audience to such 
exciting moments as her introduction of 
the Pennywhistlers when she said "a lot 
of Americans haven't been melted in 
the molting pot, but have remained' as 
nourishing lumps in the cultural stew". 

Richard Goldstein of 'The Village 
Voice" calls the Pennywhistlers the 
Lennon Sisters of the Revolution. "They 
come on clean and suburban, like a 
crest commercial for Bulgarian peasant 

Two hours of the like was brightened 
only by Elizabeth Cotton's presentation 

"The audience gave the distinct impression of suffering through the ethnics to hear fheir favor- 
ite ^o"^ performers." 

of her own creation "Freight Train." be- 
fore the newest hero of the folk scene 
appeared, Arlo Guthrie. 

Now we all know that "you can get 
anything you want at Alice's Restau- 
rant" but the program directors weren't 
dishing out very much that night and 
his appearance was all too brief. 

Arlo had a new monologue-song com- 
bination called "The swim Song" which 
doesn't have the force of Alice's Res- 
taurant but it is still highly entertain- 
ing and there is something about his 
performance which grabs and holds. In 
other words, for the first time that eve- 
ning people were listening. He had a few 
things to say about the Administration 
and the war but the song was dedicated 
to the FBI. One policeman standing 
near me, who being in the law enforce- 
ment family, apparently felt personally 
offended at the manner of dedication. 
Arlo didn't make any friends with the J. 
Edgar Hooverites when he said "This 

Arlo Gutrie's dedication of his number to 
the FBI apparently ruffled a few law en- 
forcement feathers. 

is for all you bastards out there." 

Despite the protestations of the audi- 
ence Arlo gave up the stage after the 
monologue and one number from his 
new album which will be released this 

Joan Baez, legendary, the goddess of 
the folk cult, came on stage in a flour- 
ish of civil disobedience martyrdom. Her 
songs were "mellow and relaxed, with 
a rich passionate voice to complement 
her sweet one." "Gentle on My Mind," 
"Suzanne," and a freedom song which 
she combined with the "nah-nah-nah- 
nah-nah" refrain from "Land of a Thou- 
sand Dances" in an effectively powerful 
manner provided the Baez the crowd 
had come to see. 

However. I found myself cringing a 
bit when she began to talk about her 
anti-war and anti-draft protesting. She 
has to be admired for her conviction 
but it came off too much as a "look at 
me I'm a hero' speech. A little less ven-' 
om please. 

So, that was that. The Festival appar- 
rently isn't going to be held at Newport 
next year because a new highway is 
going straight through festival field. It's 
probably just as well because the make- 
up of the concerts forced the audience 
to look elsewhere than the stage for any 
sort of excitement or "electricity" and 
in my estimation that means failure. 

It was all a hope for something that 
had been there before, and nothing could 
produce that feeling this year. The ex 
citement had to be generated in the 
rumor that Dylan was coming. 

"He's already here man. I saw him 
in the hills. Just walking by himself . . . 
big shades and a beard. Short guy. No- 
body bothered him though, except some 
cat tried to offer him a guitar and he 
just waved him off— you dig— and walk- 
ed away then he climbed a tree and just 
sat there awhile, watching."

Project 10 Begins 

UMass will begin an entirely new 
type of student community this fall in 
two brand-new houses of the Southwest 
Residence Area. 

Called Project 10, it is a community 
planned and developed almost entire- 
ly by students at Southwest. It offers 
a group of 262 volunteer freshmen a 
chance for a shared intellectual and 
social experience. In other words of 
the planners. "This plan stems from 
the belief that the process of learning 
thrives best in a community of learn- 

All Project 10 freshmen will take 
two required fres,hman courses together 
anc^ may elect to take up to five other 
courses together. The required courses 
are English III and Western Civiliza- 
tion; the electives are Botany 101. Gov- 
ernment 101. Philosophy 105 and discus- 
sion sections of Psychology 101 and 
Sociology 101. 

A group of 144 Project 10 freshmen 
women will live in Pierpont House; 
118 Project 10 freshmen men will livo 
in nearby Moore House. The two houses 
will join in planning their own pro- 
gram of visiting speakers, films and 
other cultural and social events. They 
will poin similarly in a co-ed govern- 
ment for the two houses. 

Dr. Earl Seidman of the UM School 
of Education is Project lO's faculty 
director. An assistant director, UMass 
graduate student Peter Storandt. will 
live in an apartment at one of the 
residence^. Instead of the conventional 
resident counselors. Project 10 freshmen 
will be assigned undergraduate teaching 
residents, who will help them with both 
academic and personal adjustments to 
university life. 

The Project 10 students will occupy 
roughly half of each residence. The 
remainder of each will house upper- 
class honors program students.. The 
two houses are in a group of four 
new buildings whose opening this fall 
completes the 5500 student Southwest 
Residence Area, begun in 1964. The 
area now 19 buildings, in- 
cluding three dining commons, five 22- 
story towers and 11 lowrise residences. 

The overall Project 10 approach, ac 
cording to the planners, will be "more 
oriented toward study in depth than to 
the survey approach, toward problem 
solving rather than questions and an- 
swers, toward discovery of information 
rather than the conveyance of it." 

Project 10 is the newest program in 
the UMass residential college system, 
which began at Orchard Hill in 1964 
and has been continued in the South- 
west area. Dr. John A. Hunt, new 
Southwest Residential College master, 
assisted the .student planning group for 

Project 10. The UMass residential col- 
lege system, through faculty-student con- 
tact, cultural programs and classes 
where students live, seeks to extend the 
learning process into the residence 

The 262 Project 10 freshman represent 
approximately 8 per cent of the total 
freshman class of 3150. 

New Education Positions 

The School of Education has announc- 
ed the creation of two educational 
lectureships for government officials 
beginning this fall. 

The program is the School's response 
to the need for better understanding 
between government and the academic 
community. It will allow government 
officials who have demonstrated lead- 
ership potential an opportunity to in 
crease their competence in their fields 
while at the same time permitting ed- 
ucators to realize the needs of govern- 
ment service. 

The lectureships will be awarded 
for a one-year term in cooperation with 
the Government Employees Training 
Act of 1958. They are designed for 
individuals in government service who 
can combine advanced training with ser- 
vice to the University. 

The Horace Mann Lectureship in Pub- 
lic Education Policy will be filled by 

A summer institute for teachers of the deaf 
by the Northeast Regional Media Center for 
the Deaf at the UMass use* sign language 
interpreter Frank Buck, right, during class 
lecture. Buck, faculty member of the Califor- 
nia School for the Deaf in Berkeley, inter- 
prets the words of lectnror Edward Rubin of 
the New York School for the Deaf in White 
Plains for the benefit of class members who 
understand only sign language. The summer 
institute brought teachers of the deaf from 
all over the U.S. for a six-week session on 
newer audio-visual media and its use in edu- 
cation of the deaf. 

a person who holds a govemmenial 
policy level position relevant to public 
education. He will be concerned with 
developing better levels of communi 
cation between the government and pub- 
lic education systems in order to in 
crease coordination and efficiency of 
new policies. 

A "government employee who deal.s 
with the problems of int<?mational ed 
ucation will hold the John Quincy Ad 
ams Lectureship in International Ed- 
ucation. He will work on the organiz 
ation of a possible Center for Inter 
national Education at UMass. This 
center will be designed to provide use 
ful educational programs to interna tiona] 
specialists in government service. 

Under the program a lecturer will 
remain under salary from his agency 
and will also receive a $2,000 award 
from the University. Each lecturer will 
teach a seminar in addition to pur- 
suing his own studies in the field of 
pubUc education. 

Thanks From Malawi 

UMass has received a letter of ap 
pieciation from the University nf 
Malawi for the 3800 books and journ 
als donated to the African university 
library last year. 

"We are most grateful to you all 
for arranging to collect the books," 
the letter stated, "and for all the local 
support which was so readily forth 
coming. We are still not able to stwk 
the libraries satisfactorily out of our 
own resources," it continued, "and we 
are particulary grateful for such .'^ub 
stantial help at this early stage." 

The Malawi book drive was organi 
zed in April of 1967 when the UMass 
Malawi Students Association revealed 
a need for college level textbooks fm 
the Malawi University libraries. The 
Five College community responded i" 
the call with 2165 books and 1563 journ 
als which were packed and shipped to 
Boston through the generosity of Am 
herst mover George Westcott. 

Gilbert Mottla. associate director of 
the International Training Program and 
coordinator for the UMass-Malawi pro 
gram, was "impressed with the qua) 
ity of the b<x>ks. Not only were the 
Dooks in good condition." he said, "but 
most of them were recently published 
editions." He added that the demand 
still continues for college and secondary 
school level textbooks. UMass Malawi 
students have tentative plans for an 
other book drive in early 1969. 

Three hundred medical textbooks have 
recently been donated to the Malawi 
library by William Hubbard, a Sun 
derland auctioneer and antique dealer 
They will be shipped soon. 

UMass trains Malawi students md 
technicians at its Amherst campus and 
maintaias an agricultural development 
sUff in Malawi under a U. S. Agency 
for International Development contract 
that began in 1963.

Housing Needs Help 

The UMass Housing Office urgently 
needs rental listings for off-campus ac- 
commodations for married and graduate 
students this fall. 

The continued enrollment expansion 
has made the shortage of off-campus 
apartments critical this fall. Because 
the University is expected to continue 
to increase in enrollment, the need 
for additional off -campus apartment 
housing will continue through the next 
several years. 

The University is interested in re- 
ceiving new rental listings for moder- 
ately priced apartments. Most urgently 
needed are apartments for married 
couples that rent in the $100 per month 
range. Rentals in localities near the 
University, i.e., within 10 miles <rf the 
campus, are most required. 

Interested property owners who have 
available apartments or who are con- 
structing new facilites are being urged 
to contact the Housing Office, Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, Amherst, Mass- 
achusetts, or Telephone 545-2785. 

UMass Grad Assigned 

Lieutenant Alan R. Durfee, UMass 
'67, has been assigned to the Military 
Ocean Terminal, Bay Area (MOTBA) 
as a pier officer. 

MOTBA is a joint-service organization 
which trans-ships military cargo and 
passengers from the San Francisco Bay 
to overseas bases. 

Durfee entered the Army after grad- 
uation as an enlisted man and train- 
ed at Ft. Dix. N.J. He completed the 
Engineer Officer Candidate School at 
Ft. Belvoir, Va. but was commissioned 
in the Transportation Corps. He has 
also completed the Transportation Of 
ficer Basic Course at Ft. Eustis. Va. 

Pre-Law Student Runs 

John A. Fiske, a 26 year old prelaw 
.student at UMass.. has announced his 
candidacy for representative in the 
first district of Franklin County. 

Fiske, a Deerfield resident, is also 
associated with Pioneer Valley Painters, 
Inc. of Deerfield. He is a veteran, and 
a volunteer fireman in Deerfield, a mem- 
ber of the Greater Greenfield Jaycees 
the Polish American Club of Deerfield. 
and various civic and fraternal organi- 

He feels that more could be done 
for the area by stronger representation 
in ooir state government. 

"The state has been allowed simply 
to mark time in the past several years 
in the proposed model farm of the 
University of Massachusetts School of 
Agriculture in Deerfield," he said. 
"When this farm is in opeation it will 
be of both immediate and long range 
benefits not only to the farmers of

UM Labor Dispute 

Representatives of Local 1776, Amer 
ican Federation of State, County and 
Municipal Employees. AFLCIO. at the 
University of Massachusetts have ap- 
peared before the state Labor Relations 
Commission, continuing a two year cam-

rights among university employees. 

Delay charged 

"Once again, the company association 
- the university chapter of the Massa- 
chusetts State Employees Association, 
which has contested the right of Local 
1776 to represent the employees, has 
displayed a talent for causing confusion 
and delay which works to the harm of

favored by MSEA.

tained a majority of votes in the large

requested a runoff election there. 

Paris Break Seen 

Vice President Humphrey on Sunday 
hinted at a break in the Paris peace 
talks, saying that American envoys and 
their North Vietnamese counterparts had 
reached "a very important point in 
the negotiations." 

Interviewed on ABC's "Issues and An- 
swers." Humphrey said. "I think we 
are closer to that objective of getting 
the process <rf peace under way than 
we have ever been before." 

These cautious words erf optimism 
contrasted with those of Richard M. 
Nixon, the Republican presidential nom- 
inee, after his briefing by President 
Johnson and others at the L.B.J. Ranch 

Nixon told reporters after the brief- 
ing that Secretary of State Dean Rtrsk 
told him "negotiations are continuing, 
but there is no sign of progress." How- 
ever Nixon added that there was a 
feeling among administration officials 
that the Paris talks might ultimately 
bring progress. 

Humphrey saw President Johnson at 
the ranch on f'riday before he contin- 
ued on a campaign trip into Texas. 
He did not see the press after the 
meeting as Nixon did. 

Also, neither Rusk. C.I. A. director 
Richard Helms, nor Cyrus Vance, one 
of the negotiators at Paris, was at the 
ranch when Humphrey was. They did 
brief Nixon and his running mate, Mary 
land Gov. Spiro T. Agnew. 

However, while Humphrey was carn- 
paigning in San Antonio at the Hemis 
Fair on Saturday, he was called away 
from the crowds by a telephone call 
from the ranch. It is believed that at 
this time he talked to Vance. 

On Sunday, the Vice President seem 
ed to lower the price of an American 
halt of the bombing of North Vietnam, 
citing "wide latitude" of the definition 
of a needed response from Hanoi. 

Humphrey made his remarks while 
Senate Majority leader Mike Mansfield 
was meeting in Paris with chief U.S. 
negotiator W. Averell Harriman. Mans- 
field, a leading critic of President John- 
son's Vietnam policies, had earlier vis- 
ited Moscow and Prague on an undis 
closed mission. 

On Mar. 31. President Johnson ordered 
a stop to the bombing of North Viet- 
nam north of that country's 20th par- 
allel. Hanoi's envoys in Paris have de- 
manded a total halt to American bomb- 
ing missions over their territory. 

Open Season On Doves 

The South Vietnamese, our ix)lilical 
miUtary allies and the people we are 
are saving for democracy, have begun a

crackdown on pf)litical figures and stu- 
dents who have urged talks with the 
Viet Cong. 

With all the nicieties of democracy 
chucked to the wind, the South Vietnam 
government is rounding up dissent^-rs 
and doves in what is clearly a step 
backward from the progress toward sta- 
bility that the government had Ix'en 

The most publicized and most dra- 
matic - episode in the crackdown was 
the militarv trial of Truong Dinh Dzu. 
the "dove" politician who astomshed 
his supporters last year by placing 
second in the presidential elections. Dzu 
was charged with "actions which weak- 
ened the will of the people and army 
of South Vietnam to fight against the 
Communists." He was sentenced to five 
years at hard labor. 

Somehow the trial resembled a circus 
until the judge announced the sentence, 
until the defendant shouted "I am not 
guilty" as soldiers hauled hiirv into a 
van. until Dzu's wife and teen age son 
and daughter leaned against a wall as 
if trapped and wept. Suddenly the 
trial for Vietnamese and Americans - 
stirred shock and distaste. 

The Dzu trial, however, was hardly 
an isolated episode. Within recent days 
the 23-year old editor of an anti-Govern- 
ment and anti-American student mag 
azine was sentenced to five years of 
hard labor for "disseminating printed 
matter aimed at promoting neutralism, 
false peace and Communist propagan 

At the same time, the police have 
arrested 20 Buddhist novices in Cholon, 
the Chinese quarter, and Giadinh. out- 
side Saigon, for storing illegal political 
documents. There are rumors each day 
of possible new arrests and new trials. 

Amid the rumors and whispers, the 
embarrassed United States Embassy has 
quietly protested Dzu's stiff sentence 
and privately expressed annoyance, even 

"No, no, it wasn't the thing 
in the world." said one American of 
ficial. "It comes at the wrong limt 
and it hurts us. It hurts us very much,"

A Man 

Who Doesn't Need To Say 

What He Means 

By Bill Dickinson 

-■■■■■strumming their guitars. The hall is packed 
and the sweaty bodies squirm uncomfortably in 
wooden chairs. Pretty girls with sugar-coated 
Southern drawls hand out literature. Then the 
music stops and a big burly man who introduces 
himself as "Big George" comes out onto the stage. 
He starts pitching for donations. Next comes the 
main speaker — the star. 

From outward appearances it could be a 
traveling medicine show pushing snake oil and 
other panaceas. But in reality it is a rally for a 
serious candidate for the office of President of the 
United States, George C. Wallace. 

But perhaps the first description is accurate, 
for after listening to the fonner Alabama 
governor's speech, you realize that Wallace is 
trying to sell political snake oil, a panacea for 
the nation's ills. 

Traditionally, third party candidacies like that 
of Wallace and his American Independent Party 
have been doomed to failure, and there is no 

reason to believe that this one will be any 
different. He still disturbs a great many people, 
however, and not just overwrought social 
reformers, but the leaders of the Democratic 

August 14, 1968 



and Republican parties and other people who 
should be expected to view a third party with some 
amusement as a Don Quixote tilting at windmills. 

What these people fear most is fear — the fear 
of middle class America. What has come to be 
called "backlash." Wallace plays on this fear as 
deftly as his musicians play their guitars. 

His audience has been seeing over and over on 
their televisions the faces of Stokley Carmichael 
and Rap Brown calling on black people to bum 
down their ghettos. And they see Detroit and 
Cincinnati burning in vivid color if they can 
afford a color set. If not they must settle for the 
same black and white to which Wallace reduces 
the problem. 

JjESPITE HIS protestations to the contrary, 

what Wallace is preaching is racism, and the 
audience knows it. 

One Alabama politician commented in a 
national magazine: "He can use all the other 
issues — law and order, running your own schools, 
protecting property rights — and never mention 

race. But people will know what he's telling them, 
'A nigger's trying to get your job, trying to move 
into your neighborhood.' What Wallace is doing 
is talking to them in a kind of shorthand, a kind 
of code." 

He's right. 

In the speech, which rarely varies so much as a 
comma, he tells them, "You can bus your children 
from here to Canada and back if you want to," 
but "them pointy-headed guideline writers who 
can't park their bicycles straight" will have no 
say in the matter; The audience cheers and you 
know that they're on the same wavelength. 

Then he tells them about how they should be 
able to sell their houses to whomever they want 
and how he'll make the streets safe at night. In 
Washington, in which a majority of citizens are 
black, he promises to station troops with bayonets 
every few yards if necessary. 

They know what he means — All those 
respectable people who own a one or two family 
home, a car that isn't quite the latest style, whose 
jobs can be taken over by a black man. All the 
people who try so hard to be respectable know 
what George Wallace means. 

As one newsman said, "He puts everything very 
nicely so that all these nice respectable people 
don't feel like they're at a Klan rally." 


Bill Dickinson took these photos while keeping 
tabs on Wallace in cities such (W Boston, Spring- 
field, and Lynn. If you'd like to read about av/-

August 14, 1968 

Most people have to be satisfied with 
dreams of cloak-and-dag^ger adventure. 
But for William R. Dickinson, a UMass 
junior, life is made up of many such ad- 

A joumalism-govenunent major who 
makes his home in Boston, Dickinson 
&p)ent last summer as a member of the 
New England unit of the American Nazi 
Party. He was directed in his infiltra- 
tion activities by Gordon Hall, Boston 
author and lecturer on extremist groups. 

The groundwork was laid in 1966 when 
Dickinson began sending away for Nazi 
literature using an alias and a post of- 
fice box number for a return address. 
In March of 1967 he was informed that 
a New England unit was being organ- 

**I got a letter from a man who called 
himself 'Marion Rydzy' ", Dickinson 
said. "It said to meet him in Holyoke. I 
drove to the address indicated and 
asked for Rydzy. Somebody grunted 
that he wasn't there. 

"As I was heading back to my car a 
small, slight man, about 2{i with a Polish 
accent, stepped out of the shadows and 
startled me. He identified himself as 
Rydzy, and informed me of a secret 
Nazi organizational meeting the next 
weekend. I was to meet him on the steps 
of the Boston Library. 

"I went at the designated time and 
again he appeared from out of nowhere. 
We drove to a motel in Quincy." 

This first meeting was typical of the 
several others Dickinson was to attend 
during his May-through-August mem- 
bership. It began about 4 p.m. 

'*Guys kept drifting in. a couple at a 
time." said Dickinson. "They sat around 
the motel room puffing on cigars and 

"The theme of the discussion centered 
around Jews and 'niggers'— how Negroes 
are 'getting in everywhere and taking 
over our jobs': and how Jews are steal- 
ing mail at the post office and how 
they've 'got all the money'. By about 
six o'clock around 15 had arrived. 

"They came from Boston, the Lowell- 
Lawrence area, Nashua, New Hamp- 
sihtre, and various towns in Connecticut. 
Three claimed they were students at the 
University of Rhode Island." 

Dickinson described the group as being 
"a bunch of psychopaths," and referred 
to one fellow in his mid-twenties who 
wore a black fatigue hat and had a 
moustache. He kcfit saying "yeah, yeah" 
to every remark, and kept showing 
everyone a pictire of Hitler that he 
carried with liim in his wallet. 

I'd say the median age was 30," Dick 
inson continued. "They all appeared to 
be real drifters. Most were big, burly 

"Nobody had a sense of humor," he 
continued. "The only time anybody 
laughed was over the crudest racial

jokes. One fellow advanced a theory, 
with the utmost seriousness, that you 
could identify a Jew by whether his 
noseline started below his ears." 

These men never talked about girls 
during the meetings, he noted. There 
was "no talk about breaking up because 
one of the guys wanted to meet his girl, 
or because he had to get home to his 
wife." One of the older men was mar- 
ried, he added, but said that his wife 
wasn't happy about the Nazis, and that 
if she forced him to make a choice he 
would choose the Nazis. 

Dickinson characterized Rydzy as 
being "fairly articulate" and the others 
as being "mentally sluggish." 

"Most were low-grade laborers, and 
they were extremely security conscious," 
he said. "One fellow who played piano 
in a bar was suspect because he didn't 
quite fit in. 

"There was constant talk about guns 
and the military, and all the men bad 

guns of some sort. And all of them 
were itching to use them. A lot were 
collector's items from the Nazi era." 

Continuing his description of the meet 
ing, he said that "there was absolutely 
no organization. "They were going to 
play a record and tape recording, but 
somebody forgot the tape recorder and 
phonograph. Nobody ever called the 
meeting to order. Rydzy gave a ten 
minute speech on the need for organiza 
tion. We just sat around until 8:30 when 
some cupcakes were served and one of 
the men brought in some coffee. 

"They were like children. One of their 
big i>lans was to have radio motorcycles 
for each member of the group. They 
also dreamed about big Dodge campers 
with miniature cars in the back, and a 
radio command center. They were pen 
niless men who dreamed $100,000 plans. 

"They also believed fully in the myth 
of 'the hidden majority.' Once they got 
the secret out— about race mixing or 
the Jews, for example— they believed 
everyone would join them. They talked 
a lot about picketing but never got 
around to it." 

About a month later. Dickinson went 
to another meeting at Rydzy 's place in 
Holyoke. It was in the run-down end of 
town near the dam and several aban- 
doned factories. 

"Rydzy had a table covered with a 
Nazi flag, and another Nazi flag hung 
on the wall," he said. "A storm-trooper 
who had been trained in Chicago and 
who had served a 10 year stretch in 
Atlanta gave a half-hour talk on dedica- 
tion. But he didn't say what we should 

Dickinson also attended similar meet 
ings in Nashua and Cambridge. 

On August 25, 1967, the "Commander" 
of the American Nazi Party, George 
Lincoln Rockwell, was assassinated. One 
week later, Dickinson made public his 
infiltration because "this left the national 
organization without a replacement who 
was strong enough to hold it together." 

He believes that without the dynamic 
leadership of Rockwell, the fledgling 
New England unit will fall ajwrt, with 
some members joining organizations 
like the Ku Klux Klan. 

"It's easy to laugh at their feeble ef 
forts." Dickinson said. "They're a bunch 
of crude, bumJblir^ fools on the whole, 
but they're still dangerous. They're sick, 
and I think they have a potential for 
violence. I'm sure they would use their 
gims if they felt they could get away 
with it safely." 

At various other times, Dickinson has 
also infiltrated such groups as the White 
Citizen's Council, the Ku Klux Klan, the 
John Birch Society, and the Young So- 
cialist Alliance, a Trotskyist group.

August 14. 1968 

Reviewing a New Version 
Of Uncle Tom's Cabin 

A news flash the other day provided 
the startling information that Jackie 
Robinson had looked into his heart and 
announced that he could not support 
the RepubUcan party in the presidential 
campaign. He branded the Nixon-Agnew 
ticket as "racist" and continued the 
slander with a simple if - then propos- 
ition that a GOP victory will bring 
more mass race riots. 

Robinson's claim to political acumen 
rests on the facts that he was a pub- 
lic relations assistant for Rockefeller 
and that he was the instrument by 
which Branch Rickey broke the color 
line in major league baseball in the 
late '40s. But of course now his state- 
ments are front page material. 

More news flashes: The Green Bay 
Packers are rooming white and black 
players together. Several colleges are 
hiring Negro football coaches. The Har- 
vard crew supportss the principle of 
the proposed Olympic boycott by black 

Then of course, there is hirsute Harry 
Edwards, a former sociology professor at 
san Jose State and a 6'8 former de- 
cathlon man, who has conceived under 
neath his beret, shades and love beads 
the idea of the Olympic boycott under 
the auspices of the Olympic Committee 
to Promote Human Rights (or Harry's 
Revenge). The purpose of a boycott on 
an international level, if only in such 
imock warfare as the Olympics, was ap- 
parently to embarrass the U.S. before 
other nations, which of course are free 
of the racial atrocities of which Edwards 
accuses the U.S. 

That perhaps the world's greatest 
sporting event has been suggested as 
a backdrop in the increasingly diversi- 
fied civil rights movement bears some 
attention in that a boycott or demon- 
stration at Mexico City this fall will 
represent the first intrusion of a major 
sporting event by Negro militants. Rap 
Brown, I'm sure, will be there if s«nne- 
thing comes off and if he can get out 
of jail. 

Weren't the greatest athletic feats ever 
accomplished by a Negro the stunning 
victories of Jesse Owens in the 1936 
Olympics in Hitler's Berlin? While it 
may be true, as Edwards says, that 
Owens' four gold medals helped the 
rights movement not a whit, just how 
much will a boycott aid the movement 
in America if it offers several medals 
up as a sacrifice to the already favor- 
ed Russians? 




By Tom FifzGerald 

Now, EMwards, a self-styled Diogenes, 
considers George Wallace the best pres- 
idential prospect this year because "he's 
But then after Lee Evans, an ace run- 
ner from San Jose State and one of 
not afraid to say what he thinks." 
Edwards' original cohorts in the boycott 
proposal, announced that a group of 
Negro Olympians had met and vetoed 
the boycott, Edwards said Evans' state- 
ment was only to cause chaos. In other 
words, he called Evans a liar. 

So while Edwards is doing his thing 
for apartheid in America, he is win- 
ning large-scale publicity for his ef- 
forts. Never has the Negro athlete or 
former athlete been so dominant in 
civil rights, and never have his actions 
off the field been reported so excessive- 
ly as in today's mass media. 

A recent series in Sports Illustrated 
on "The Black Athlete," the jockey- 
strap version of Uncle Tom's Cabin, 
exemplified the saturation coverage of 
the newly vocal Negro athlete. Listen 
to the premise the series began with: 
"Every morning the world of sports 
wakes up and congratulates itself on its 
contributions to race relations .The lit- 
any has been repeated so many times 
that it is believed almost universally. 
It goes: 'Look what sports has done for 
the Negro.' " Just where on earth did 
the author. Jack Olsen, find the idea 
that sports activity is widely regarded 
as a panacea for all racial ills, on 
and off the playing field? 

The author took the popular view 
that, at least in collegiate circles, 
sports have been good to the Negro 
and turned it 180 degrees so that it 
read that the Negro has been good to 
sports and has received little for his 
efforts but agony and frustration. This 
reverse theory evidently was concocted 
first, the data and case studies were 
then assembled accordingly. The result 
was a polished, but heavily biased at- 
tempt to exorcize the "false gods" of 
the sports world. The article dashed 
a coat of black paint on college sports, 
smgling out the University of Texas 
at El Paso, U.C.L.A., Kansas. Iowa 
State and others, and on pro sports 
singling out the N.F.L.'s St. Louis Card- 


inals. The result was also a black day 
for straight forward sports reporting 
particulariy in light of the fact that,' 
except for the Sporting News, Sports 
Illustrated stands alone among weekly 
sports literature. 

"What is happening today." the art- 
icle said, "amounts to a revolt by the 
black athlete against the framework and 
attitudes of American sport, and that 
such a thing could occur in his pet 
province has astonished the white sports 
follower." Such a "framework and at- 
titudes" were apparent, the story ran. 
in cases in which Negro athletes were 
no longer tutored and were taken off 
relief when their eligibility ran out. 
The story gave the impression that 
only black athletes are exploited by 
colleges that sell themselves to the 
pubUc mainly by athletic achievements. 

It pointed out many black athletes 
were poorly equipped in education to 
begin with, such as Kansas football 
players Don Shanklin. who had never 
read a book before going to college, 
and Willie McDaniel, who only looked at 
pictures in comic botrfts, and Harry 
Gunner of Oregon State, who had read 
just The Willie Mays Story. Others like 
star basketball player Don Smith of 
Iowa State had a police record this long. 
Somehow Sports lUnstrated eluded the 
basic argument against the athletic 
burgeoned in this country: thousands of 
athletes being paid to attend college, 
both white and black, just shouldn't 
be there. 

But the crowning insult to the intel- 
ligence of the average reader who 
realizes that racism exists to one de- 
gree or another throughout America, 
was four or five pages devoted to in- 
stances in which black college athletes 
scholarship system that has steadily 
were discouraged by coaches, other 
players, etc.. from dating white girls. 
"The American sports establishment 
continues to hold its place as one of the 
bastions of deep, unsettled, sex-oriented 
prejudice." said Olsen. Were the details, 
and. in fact, most of the five^art ser- 
ies, really needed?

The Week in Sports 

By Jan Curley 

Tiger Weekend 

The Red Sox, or what is left of that 
demoralized dream team, returned to 
Boston in the wee hours of Monday 
morning, and this time they were not 
met by any adoring fans clamoring to 
get a glimpse of their heroes at Logan 
Airport. When the Red Sox moved into 
Detroit Friday night, everyone was talk- 
ing pennant again, after four victories 
over Chicago and the bubbles were float- 
ing. But it taoik only one claw, namely, 
that of Gates Brown, to break that bub- 
ble. The Tigers swept three straight 
games, coming from behind twice Sun- 
day on pinch hitters by Brown to sweep 
a double header. The Red Sox really left 
the pennant in Detroit this time, and to 
have to meet the Tigers again this week- 
end is just pouring salt on the wound . . . 
Carl Yastrzemski hit his 100th of the 
year in the second game against the 
Tigers. He has 94 walks on the season, 
three more than he had all last year. 

NFL Soccer Play 

As if the Green Packers didn't have 
enough talent already with Bart Starr, 
Boyd Dowler and Elijah Pitts, they're 
dipping into the soccer players now. 
Fernando •Sou2:a, a center-forward for 
the Astros of the American Soccer 
League, has been trying his foot at some 
Icicking for the Packers. Green Bay is 
hurting since Don Chandler retired. The 
Packers lost the NFL title only twice, 
once when Paul Hornung was suspended 
in 1963 and Kramer weis unable to re- 
peat his performance of the previous 
year in 1964 and again in 1965 when 
Hornung was unable to regain his form. 
Chandler was the answer to Vince Lom- 
bardi^s prayers, and they swept the last 
three titles. Now Souza, who kicked six 
field goals against the Packer defense 
in 10 tries, maybe the perfect gift for 
the team who has everything. WeU, al- 
most everything . 

Un-wise Call? 

Rick Wise may be the victim of an un- 
wise call. Wise, a right-ihanded pitcher 
for the Philadelphia Phillies, was 
charged with giving up a hit in a game the Los Angeles Dodgers. But 
the call was questionable. The Dodgers 
Bart Shirley hit a ibouncer to the left of 
second base. The ball t(x>k a high hop 
and glanced off the glove of Phillies 
shortstop Roberto Pena. Pena claimed it 
was an error on hLs part, but the umpire 
ruled it was a hit. At the time, no one 
really bothered to argue that call. But it 
turned out that this hit was the only 
thing that separated Wise from the re- 
August 14, 1968 

cord books and a no-hitter. Wise took 
the whole incident philosophically, pro- 
claiming that he was just "happy to win 
a ballgame", and when youn team is in 
seventh place, 20^: games out, that's not 
such a bad philosophy. But the memory 
will linger on that the hit was not a 
clean hit, and maylbe a different umpire 
would have made a different call. 

First Homer, First Brawl 

It was quite a week for Kevin Collins 
of Springfield, third baseman for the 
Mets. He slammed a three-run homer, 
his first in the majors, in the ninth in- 
ning of Tuesday's game to lift the Mets 
to a 4-1 victory over the Astros. And 
then there was a fight Wednesday night 
in the Astrodome between the Mets and 
the Astros, and talkative manager Harry 
Walker was in there from the start. Col- 
lins was knocked flat when the Astros' 
Doug Rader came up fast from a slide 
into third and caught Cbllins squarely on 
the chin. Both teams surged out off the 
dugout, converged around the stretcher, 
and a lulu of a fi^ht erupted. Walker 
proclaimed it was sn accident and the 
fists started swinging. Collins was unin- 
jured, the Astros won 4^ and the brawl 
ended in a draw . 

Glancing Askance 

Mickey Mantle, rapidly deteriorating 
Yankees' wonder, hit his 530th and 531st 
homers of his career bringing him to 
within tl ree of Jimmy Foxx's record of 
534 .. . The other half of Murder's Row 
has made it official. At the end of this 
seeison Roger Maris will retire to become 
a- little old beermaker in Gainesville, Fla. 
. . . Denny McLain, the ace Detroit 
pitcher, picked up one more victory to 
need only seven to be come a 30-game 
winner, the first in 34 years .Red Sox 
fans should get to see him in action Fri- 
day night at Fenway Park . 

Burley Crowe, defensive cooixiinator 
for the Redman football team, was 
named football coaoh at Northampton 
High to succeed veteran coach Gene De- 
Filippo who has become the vice prin- 
cipal. Crowe joined the UMass staff last 
fall after serving as backfield ooach at 
Villanova and defensive coach at Vir- 
ginia Military Institute where he also 
worked with the linebackers and ends. 
The Keydets were the Southern Confer- 
ence Champions during three years of 
his tenure there. Crowe was also defen- 
sive coach at Vanderbilt and in his last 
season the Commodores were top defen- 
sive teams in the Southern Conference. 
Former Redman football palyers in the 
news were Bob Ellis and Greg Landry. 
Ellis was dropped by the Patriots last 
week as they cut their squad to 56 play- 
ers . . . Landry got his chance to call 

the signals for the Detroit Lions in the 
second half of an exihibition game 
against the Philadelphia Eagles. Landry 
kept the Eagles defense soaring as he 
mixed long ibomib passes with sUck run- 
ning plays. Landiy marched the Lions 
down to the two-yard line in the final 
quarter by hurling a 50-yard bomib to 
Earl McCullough. Detroit was unable to 
score, and the field goal attempt was 
blocked, but the (Lions won 20-3. The 
game was originally scheduled to be 
played in Mexico City, but was switched 
to Franklin Field in Philadelphia at the 
last minute by the Mexican government 
which has been plagued by student dem- 
onstrations. Only 12,176 fans showed up 
at the stadium which has a capacity nf 
60,000 ... In other exhibition football 
action, the Boston Patriots got their 
season off to their usual start by being 
blanked by New Orleans 19-0. One of 
these years the Patriots wiiU have a win- 
ning exhibition season, but when? . . . 
The surprise of the weekend came from 
the New York Giants. The Giants 
haven't been serious contenders for the 
NFL championship since they won the 
Eastern Division in 1963. But Saturday 
night they upset the invincible Green 
Bay Packers, 15-14. A four-yard touch- 
down pass from Fran Tarkenton to Joe 
Morrison with 14 seconds remaining in 
the game gave the Giants their surprise 
victory. It was the first Giant victory 
over Green Bay in 13 games since 1960 
and ended a nine-game exhibition win- 
ing streak for the Packers. Maybe 
things will be different in the NFL this 
year. It's a ilittle disheartening to think 
that the pigskin title race will be as dull 
as the race for the American and Na- 
tional League pennants . . . Also, Wash- 
ington defeated Atlanta, 16-14, on a 45- 
yard field goal by Charlie Gogolak with 
16 seconds left; Baltimore defeated Chi- 
cago 10-0; Kansas City downed Minne- 
sota 13^0; Denver nipped Cincinnati 
15-13 and Oakland trounced San I>iego 
31-7 . 

How about Denny McLain and Bob 
Gibson for the Most Valuable Player of 
the Year awards? 'MdLain is pacing De- 
troit to the American League pennant, 
and Gibson is making his contribution to 
the Cardinal effort. If these two should 
win, it wiU be the first time since the 
awards were initiated in 1931 that two 
pitchers have won. Baltimore's Boog 
Powell and Boston's Ken Harrelson will 
gamer a few votes themselves, but if 
McLain wins 30-games. he should be the 
favored contender. McLain would be a 
cinch for the Cy Young Award, and Man- 
ichal and Gibson will be strong competi- 
tors for the award in the National 
League . . . Remember Dick Stuart? He 
sort of played first base for the Red 
Sox, but he managed to ibobhle a few be- 
cause of stiff fingers. WeU, he moved to 
Japan, where the climdte is warmer, 
and last week slammed his fourth homer 
in as many games for the Taiyo Whales, 
but his team still lost to the Yomiuri 
Giants, 7-4. 


Inside The News 

(Continued from page 6) 


In what appeared to be a related de- 
velopment, it was reliably reported from 
Prague tonight by two sources that 
Walter Ulbricht, East Germany's leader, 
would travel to Karlovy Vary, Czecho- 
slovakia, Monday for conciliatory talks 
with Alexander Dubcek, that country's 
Communist party chief. 

The significance of this development 
is illustrated by the fact that only nine 
days ago Mr. Ulbricht's party press was 
reviling the Dubcek leadership for har- 
boring "counterr^evolutionary and anti- 
socialist" elements. 

The strongest of the indications of a 
major Soviet shift on West Germany was 
the soberly phrased offer of Mr. Ulbricht 
yesterday to normalize relations with 
that country on the basis of several pro- 
posals originally presented by the Bonn 
Government itself. 

This offer, to exchange renunciation- 
of-force agreements to be negotiated by 
special representatives, was made with- 
out reservations. It represented a rever- 
sal from Mr. Ulbricht's previous demand 
that formal recognition of his German 
Democratic Republic had to precede all 
steps toward rapprochment : 

Just a week ago today crowds of 
Slovaks and East German tourists booed 
and hissed Mr. Ulbricht from the streets 
of Bratislava as he drove up to the Town 
Hsdl to sign the compromise declaration 
agreed on by the Soviet Union and five 
other Europeian Communist governments 
after the crises over Czechoslovak 

Yesterday crowds outride the Hrad- 
cany Palace in Prague carried signs hail- 
ing the arrival of President Tito of 
Yugoslavia and assailing Mr. Ulbricht. 

It is believed that these anti^Jlbricht 
manifestations in Czechoslovakia may 
have prompted him and Mr. Dubcek to 
arrange the hurried meeting Monday to 
make a public show of solidarity. 

It is also likely that the two leaders 
will try to hammer out a common line 
toward Bonn, which the Prague Govern- 
ment would like to recognize as soon as 

By making his extraordinary bid to 
Bonn yesterday, Mr. Ulbricht has al- 
ready moved a step closer to the con- 
ciliatory stance of the Dubcek leadership 
toward West Germany.

The Republican platform was, as the 
young man who seconded Harold' Stas- 
sen put it, broad enough so that even 
Ho Chi Minh could have run on it. And 
that's the way it was in Miami. A clear 
case for compromise and middle-of-the- 

It is significant that the GOP, at- 
tempting to capitalize in 1968 on the 
Democratic Party's credibility gap, 
Sihould choose as their candidate Richard 
M. Nixon, for it was Nixon who in the 
late 40's and early 50's helped develop 
the techniques of double-talk that have 
become the trademark of contemporary 
American "gaps". 

The Nixon style first became appar- 
ent i nhis Congressional campaigns in 
1946 and 1948 on the West Coast. Cap- 
italizing on strong anti-communist sen- 
timent, Nixon's technique was character 
assassination, intimations and innuen- 
dos presented to an already hypersensi 
tive public. Some observers at the time 
were horrified. Others, aware of the im- 
plications of the method commented 
that Nixon was an astute politician — 
he knew the methods of getting elected. 

It was in 1952 with the famous Chec- 
kers speech that Nixon gave the Ameri- 
can public a real taste of the political 
double talk that was to infuse later A- 
merican foreign and domestic poli- 

In the speech, Nixon revealed what 
had already been made public, the fact 
that he had accepted contributions of 
some $18,000 from California busines- 
ses in return for supporting their in- 
terests in Congress. At this time Nixon 
was running as vice-president on the 
GOP ticket with Eisenhower. 

Again, Nixon outfoxed political ob- 
servors who speculated that this was 
the end of the road. On national tele- 
vision he equated the campaign contri- 
butions with a spaniel named "Chec- 
kers" that a friend had given his daugh- 
ters and which Nixon simply could not 
return. Without denying acceptance of 
the money, Nixon made a plea to sen- 
timent and the result was overwhelm- 
ingly in support of the candidate. Ike 
called Nixon a warrior and the political 
lie or whitewash began to gain accep- 

The same tactic is used when the ad- 
ministration uses the terms defoliation 
or limited bombing. Land is being 
scorched', villages burned but fancy 
terms whitewash the subject and keep 
the public soothed by failing to inform 

NLxon acquired the nickname of Tric- 
ky Dicky, an image be tried to shake 
in the 1960 presidential campaign a- 

August 14, 1968 

gainst John F. Kennedy. 

Now it was a "new Nixon" who re- 
gretted the treacheries of the past, the 
support of Joe McCarthyism, inability 
to understand Soviet Russia, the do-no- 
thing years in the Eisenhower admin- 

But there were enough who remem- 
bered the old Nixon to defeat him in 
1960 and again in the California guber- 
natorial race in 1962 against Pat Brown. 
After the second defeat Nixon gave way 
to a burst of hysterical self^ity at a 
news conference in which he blamed a 
bad press for all his problems. 

Nixon then beccmie a background fig- 
ure in politics. He traveled widely and 
worked his private law practice but all 
the while planning a renewed attack. 
Now, from Miami Beach, the newer 
than new Dick Nixon. And those who 
were too young to remember Alger 
Hiss, Joe McCarthy, the "Checkers" 
speech or even the vice-presidency un- 
der Ike, are being asked to vote for 

The question now is how much of this 
professed change has really taken place 
in the old "warrior". Nixon was a hawk. 
Now it is politically expedient to advo- 
cate some sort of p)eaceful, face-saving, 
settlement. How much is a whitewash 
ar>d' how much is sincere? 

Nixon never really understood Com- 
munism and held a devil-theory load- 
ed with stereotypes about the Soviets^ 
Now, Nixon says we should talk peace 
with the Russians, but in the next 
breath resorts to the old-worldisms a- 
bout containment and the Red Threat. 


His choice of Agnew, a critic of the 
Kemer Report and an ulti^ conserva-- 
tive on the cities who carries a big stick 
on the urban problem and believes in 
using it, reflects the type of approach 
Nixon is making on the domestic issue. 
Law and order and protection of the 
women and children, white middle class, 
that is. 

This choice of vice-president was in 
fact a condescendence to the South and 
particularly the far-right, ultra conser- 
vative Strom Thurmond of South Caro- 
lina. For Nixon the entire campaign was 
a game of numbers and maneuvering, 
the tactics of political engineering. 

Nevertheless, Dick Nixon is back, 
chasing again after that elusive maiden, 
Power. He's fallen flat before, some say 
because he ran too hard. 

His victory so far has simply meant 
a triumph for the old politics of parti- 
san politics, double-talk and broad base 
of apijeal within the party. It is a de- 
feat for politics of ideology and so far a 
defeat for the politics of change.

setts Medical School in Worcester and 
will drastically affect research projects 
in both Amherst and Boston, President 
John W. Lederle told UMass trustees 

In presenting the "bleak financial pic 
ture." Lederle said university officials 
will make every effort to expedite the 
granting of $18 million in promised fed- 
eral funds for the medical school re- 
search facilities but held out little hope 
for averting cutbacks in basic research 
grants totaling $7 million already grant- 
ed for the total university complex. 

Congress this year sliced $6 billion 
from the U. S. Dept. of Health. Educa- 
tion and Welfare budget, resulting in a 
10 to 20 per cent cutback in federal 
funding of higher education research and 
development projects. Lederle said. Most 
UMass research projects will be affected 
immediatel y. 

"To have a quality medical school, 
the university needs these research 
funds, "President Lederle continued. "If 
we are successful in obtaining retroac- 
tive funding of the basic science building 
in Worcester, we will request the state 
to put up the entire funds, with the 
understanding that the federal funds 
would become available at a later date. 
"The medical school research facilities 
are expected to cost $45 million. 

Porvost Oswald Tippo said the 10 to 
20 per cent reduction in basic research 
funds will affect the entire university 
within two weeks. University officials 
must decide where to apply the cuts in 
projects already approved and funded 
by the federal government. Affected will 
be research salaries, equipment pur- 
chases, and administrative and summer 
research help.

After rejecting Park Square, the trus- 
tees have turned their attention to an 
18 acre tract at North Station as a pos- 
siible site for a permanent UMass-Bos- 

"The site has many possibilities, al- 
though the necessity for relocation of the 
highway, rapid transit tracks and rail- 
road facilities presents some difficul 
ties." said Fred Emerson, vice-chairman 
of the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds. A final decision on a perma- 
nent site for the UMass-Boston complex 
is expected at a meeting in Boston next 

Emerson confirmed reports that the 
Park Square site, under consideration 
for the past two years, has been rejected 
by his committee. He reported that only 
seven acres of land had been made avail- 
able for the university in downtown Bos- 

ton, which he noted is inadequate for 
proposed UMass-Boston facilities. 
• • • 

UMass' health facilities will be expand- 
ed. Trustees authorized preliminary 
plans for an addition to the Health Serv- 
ices complex. 

The proposed addition is part of a 
long-range plan to provide adequate 
health services for the burgeoning stu- 
dent population on the Amherst campus. 
No cost estimates were submitted. 

In recommending the health services 
expansion, Emerson said present facili- 
ties had been designed for a peak camp- 
us population of 10.000 students and not- 
ed UMass Amherst now has an enroll- 
ment of 15.000. He said the proposed 
expansion would provide for an eventual 
population of 28,000 to 30,000 students. 
"We must add on to keep up with the 
student traffic utilizing on-campus health 
services," Emerson said. 

In other action, on recommendation of 
the Buildings and Grounds Committee, 
trustees voted to explore the possibility 
of constructing a new athletic center and 
a convention center on the UMass camp- 
us. In addition, trustees expressed 
"favorable interest" in constructing a 
new fire station and dormitory for the 
town of Amherst on university property 
at the Tillson farm in East Pleasant 

Proposing the construction <rf an ath- 
letic center and a convention center, 
Emerson said the action has been re- 
commended by Dean Warren W. Mc- 
Guirk of the School of Physical Educa- 
tion. He said he forsees two separate 
facilities built near Boyden Gymnasium 
on the southwest comer of the campus 
for hockey and basketball and for con-

and seek permission from the town to

Townspeople have constantly rejected 
similar overtures for the closing of the 
road in the past. 

At the request of the town of Amherst,

what part does Vietnam play n 
in selecting our next President i 

By Pat Petow 

Apparently for the hawks, moderates 
and the people who are comforted' by 
any kind of peace talks, Vietnam is 
just one of several sensitive issues. 

Rockefeller, before the Republican 
convention, offered a four-stage plan 
to remove all American troops from 
Vietnam. Nixon, on the other hand, 
stressed the need for "new leadership" 
to end the war. 

And the political analyzers will tell 
you that Nixon was nominated be- 
cause he declared his candidacy early, 
because he was collecting lOU's for 
many years of faithful part.' work, 
and because he made a deal with the 
Southern delegates. 

Mr. Nixon's to the South- 
erners indicates that he considers the 
votes of that section of the nation, and 
its opposition to full civil riRhts for the 
Blacks, to be more important than the 
vote of the doves. Likewise, his choice 
of Spiro Agnew implies that "law and 
order" is a more important theme 
than conciliating even the moderates 
on Vietnam with a choice such as for- 
mer critic Mark Hatfield of Oregon. 

All of which leads one to the con- 
clusion that George Wallace has been 
calling the shots in this campaign and 
not Gene McCarthy. 

Up to this point, nearly two weeks 
before the Democratic convention, 
when everyone is predicting defeat for 
the Senator from Mirmesota, Vietnam 
is not the issue on which the next 
President will be elected. This is not 
to say that Vietnam could not be 
the issue. 

On the surface it would seem that 
Vietnam as an issue has not been 
written off by the Democrats. Sen. 
George S. McGovem entered the race 
Saturday as a peace candidate. But 
despite his agreement with Sen. Mt 
Carthy, McGovem would not support 
him as a candidate. Besides the bitter- 
ness and the institutionalizing of the 
Kennedy supporters — so that very few 
will support the man they agree with 
— it is said the Kennedy people fear 
that McCarthy as President would be 
passive, would assume an "attitude of 

But while the is.suc remains, it is 
difficuit, osf)eciaUy in view of the Re- 
publican performance, to say this issue 
will dominate the convention. Even as 
McGovem made his announcement, the 
word was out that Gov. Lester Mad- 
dox would be announcing his candid- 
acy, presumably on the platform of 
"law and order." 

We seem to have reached the point 
where the relative importance of the 
issues for the campaign ahead will be 
decided by one man— Hubert Horatio 
Humphrey. How HHH chooses his run- 
ning mate may indicate the stress that 
will be given to Vietnam. 

There may be one other way, how- 
ever, in which Vietnam will remain an 
issue for the voters.: if a Fourth Par- 
ty such as Mark Raskin's New Party, 
gets off the ground. 

Why isn't Vietnam the issue? Why 
should it be? Perhaps, the people have 
gotten tired of Vietnam and have be- 
come more afraid of violence in their 
cities and suburb.s. Perhaps the peo- 
ple have not tried hard enough to re- 
solve the Vietnam war. Perhaps the 
mass of the people cannot succeed on 
this kind of issue. 

Perhaps it's just that parties have 
traditionally offered an across - the - 
bofird appeal and feel they don't need 
or want a loaded issue such as a war 
on which to base a Ccunpaign. 

Or perhaps there's something wrong 
with the election (and nominating) 

It may be that the views of the re- 
maining candidates are not really at 
great variance with one another or 
else are too dep)endent on contingen- 
cies to be considered final. Another 
possibility is that the people have had 
analysis after analysis thrust upon 
them without sufficient regard for the 
actual views of the men in question. 

Not much about Vietnam is certain. 
It seems the role it will play will 
largely be decided by the candidates. 
So far. it is not really clear what that 
role will be. But the contrasting and' 
the not -so-contrasting opinions of the 
conutenders are known: 

NIXON : F:mphasizes the use of more 
air and sea power, a "phasing out" of 
American troops and greater reliance 
on South Vietnamese forces. 

He has opposed all bombing pauses. 
He said thus weekend that he would 
start criticizing the conduct of the war 
if the administration were to call a 
complete and unilateral halt to the 

He v/ould increase economic and 
nonmilitary aid to South Vietnam be- he says the war cannot be 
fought by military means alone. 

He opixxses any attempt "to impose" 
a coalition government on Saigon. But 
hints that if the South Vietnamese ac- 
cepted a coalition, he would not object. 

He calls for a negotiated' settlement 
and suggests an "economic detente" 

in Europe in exchange for Soviet help 
to end the war. He has not detailed 
what he would do, on the grounds that 
it would undercut the Paris talks and 
would weaken his position were he 

HUMPHREY: Opposes a unilateral 
withdrawal of troops but favors turn- 
ing more of the fighting over to the 
South Vietnamese. 

He believes the bombing should end 
as the other side offers reciprocal ac- 
tions, and that no action should be 
taken that would jeopardize a political 

He advocates free elections with 
binding results. The United States, he 
says, should foster a representative 
government. He does not specifically 
advocate the inclusion of the Commu- 
nists in the elections or government. 

He calls for an immediate cease-fire 
to speed up talks. He refrains from 
further comment on the negotiations. 

McCarthy : opposes increajiing the 
number of troops. He advocates an 
end to search-and-destroy missions, a 
pullback to key areas arid' setting up 
defense jjerimeters. 

He favors an end to bombing because 
the North Vietnamese have made thLs 
a condition. 

He calls for a greater responsibility 
for South Vietneim, and he apparently 
has little confidence in a pacification 

He advocates accepting a coalition 
government. If the South Vietnamese 
refuse to accept one, he urges a pull- 
back and eventual withdrawal of A- 
mericam troops. 

He sees the coalition government as 
the key to ending the war. He urges 
international supervision for a settle- 

McGOVERN : Calls for an immediate 
bombing halt, and urges an end to 
search-and-destroy missions. 

He terms the war "the most disas- 
trous political, moral, and' diplomatic 
blunder in our national exp)erience." 

WALLACE : Says our 500,000 troops 
must be supported. 

He has expressed approval of en- 
couraging South Vietnam to do more 
for itself. He favors asking our allies 
to join in the fight 

He says if the Paris talks fail, as 
President he would rely heavily on the 
advice of the joint chiefs of staff. If 
they had a plan for military victory 
with conventional weapons, he would 
adopt it. 

Your life/ my fellow men. is axx island 
separated from all other islands and re- 
gions. No matter how many are the ships 
that leave your shores for other climeS/ ^o 
matter how many are the fleets that touch

The ACLU and Campus Demonstrations 

NEW YORK (CPS) The American 
Civil Liberties Union has issued a strong 
statement on campus demonstrations 
which criticizes students, faculties, and 
administrations alike. 

The statement calls for a "review of 
the structure and internal relations of 
the university on every campus," and 
says universities should involve all con- 
cerned groups in the development and 
execution of academic policy at every 
level. The statement is the result of a 
survey of recent campus disruptions by 
the ACLU's Academic Freedom Com- 

In its sweeping indictment, the state- 
ment says, "On many campuses there 
have been grave violations of the prin- 
ciples of sound academic governance by 
administrations which have denied stu- 
dents reasonable participation in mat- 
ters of university policy in which their 
interests have been clearlv involved by 
faculties which have been indifferent to 
the needs and aspirations of students 
and by students who by various actions 
have interfered with the processes of 
teaching, learning, and the right tf) 
free speech." 

The civil liberties group, however ad- 
mitted that "an examination of the con- 
ditions which have triggered demonstra- 
tions shows that in a ma.iority of cases 
students have had a prima facie justifi- 
cation for their concern, if not for their 
manner of expre.ssing it. As examples 

the statement points out that students 
have i)rotested against compulsory 
ROTC, the susi)ension of politically ac- 
tive students, the neglect of black stu- 
dents, and the mistreatment of contro- 
versial faculty members. 

The ACLU charges that passive facul- 
ties have allowed most of the power in 
the university to pass into the hands of 
the administration, and "the administra- 
tion hiis been only too ready to accept 
this power and to exercise it in an es- 
sentially managerial way. with little re- 
gard for the characteristic intellectual 
and social realities of academic life. It 
is a significant fact that many univer- 
sity administrators are as much at home 
on the boards of large corporations and 
in the upper echelons of the bureaucracy 
as they are on their own campuses." 

The statement levels a bitter attack 
against administrations which have call- 
ed police onto their campuses to break 
up student protests. "The invitation of 
civil authorities onto the campus en- 
dangers the autonomy of the institution 
and should be resorted to only when all 
other avenues have failed and then pre- 
ferably under strict procedural rules laid 
down and agreed to by administration 
faculty, and students." the statement 

It adds, "In view of the brutality of 

some police actions, the formulation of 

such rules appears to be a matter of 
urgent priority." 

The civil liberties group, however con- 
demns the tactics of student protesters 
which result in the ixilice being called 
in. "The manner in which demonstra- 
tions have been conducted, at least in 
some notorious cases, must be condemn- 
ed as disproportionate to the grievances 
of the students and as categorically in 
I violation of the basic principles of aca- 
demic freedom. The fact that significant 
reforms may be won by violent action 
does not justify the resort to violence, 
even if such action seems plausible to 
some in a society marked by violence 
both internally and in its external ac- 
tions, and even if an apparent justifica- 
tion after the fact seems to be provided 
by a violent response, for example a 
police action." 

The ACLU issued the statement on 
campus demonstrations from its New 
York office while its National Conven- 
tion was meeting in Ann Arbor, Michi- 
gan in June. Delegates at the conven- 
tion called upon the ACLU's Board of 
Directors to adopt a policy which would 
condone "violation of an admittedly val- 
id law" as a method of expressing poll- 
tical or social opinion. 

Presently, the ACLU policy makes a 
distinction between protest against laws 
which are considered valid and those 
which are considered invalid or uncon- 
stitutional by the ACLU. The Board of 
Directors holds its next meeting in

When you saw it, you probably thought we 
were reading your minJd. 

NO MATTER HOW you look at it, 
the decision of Arthur Goldberg 
to handle the appeals case of Yale 
Chaplain William Sloan Coffin, 
Jr. is a good move. 

Goldberg brings to the case a most im- 
pressive background as a lawyer Su- 
preme Court justice and U.S. ambassa- 
dor to the United NaUons. What is most 
mteresting, however, is that Goldberg, 
who has defended the war policies of 
Johnson in the U.N., will be taking the 
case of a man who has been in the fore- 
front of the movement to discredit and 
nullify those same policies. 

Thus will commence a new and star- 
tlingly different chapter in the career of 
the man who may be the most effective 

public conciliator of his time. 
In retaining Goldberg to handle the 

appeal from his recent conviction for 

conspiring with Dr. Benjamin Spock and 

others to violate the draft law. Rev. 

Coffin has added new drama to a case 

which has already divided the country 

perhaps as much as any since 

the Supreme Court ruled 111 

years ago in the I>red Scott 

case that Cbngress had no 

power to exclude slavery 

from the territories. 
The case could culminate 

in Goldberg's appearance be- 
fore his former colleagues of 

the Supreme Court and in a 

landmark decision on the 

rights of conscience and the 

limits to which citizens may 

lawfully on in their protest 

activities against the government. 

There is a significant parallel between 
the issues in the Spock-Coffin case and 
the Dred Scott case. The defendants in 
the more recent trial assert that the war 
is so morally outrageous and illegal that 
their draft card turn-ins and other ac- 
tions In opposing it were legitimate. 
Similarly the abolitionists proclaimed a 
right of conscientious resistance to the 
spread of slavery. 

There is some reason to suspect that 
. Mr. Justice Goldberg, as he prefers to be 
called, welcomes the opportunity pre- 
sented to him by Rev. Coffin. It is an 
open secret that he had strong personal 
reservations about administration poli- 
cies in Vietnam. As long ago as June, 
1966, one respected U.N. correspondent 
depicted him as a man increasingly dis- 
consolate over Vietnam, "forced by cir- 
cumstances to defend policies which he 
knows tx) be illegal, immoral and down- 
right foolish." 

Coffin views his retention of Goldberg 
as potentially effective in reducing disaf- 
fection and cynicism among opponents of 
the war. 

"We have a widening chasm between 
the administration and many people in 
this country," Coffin told The Globe the 
other day, "and it seemed t» me that 
there were only a few men of intellectual 

and moral stature left who could bridge 
this chasm. Arthur Goldberg is one of 

As a practical matter it is not ex- 
pected that Coffin's defense will rely 
very heavily on the issue of the legality 
of the war. Only two of the nine justices 
currently serving on the court have 
evinced any sympathy for the proposi- 
tion that the court should even consider 
this issue, much less decide such a "poli- 
tical" matter unfavorably toward the ad- 

Prof. Paul Freund of the HarvaM Law 
School is among a number of legal ex- 
perts who believe that Coffin and his fel- 
low defendants — Dr. Spock, author 
Mitchell Goodman and Harvard graduate 
student Michael Ferber — have good 
prospects of being vindicated. 

"Appeals to conscience and expres- 
sions of respect and support by the de- 
fendants for those who conscientiously 
had made up their minds to resist the 
draft," he says, "may be speech, which 

IS protected by the First Amendment " 

Another possible defense lies in the 
refusal of the trial judge, Francis J W 
Ford, to admit evidence of the defen- 
dants' reasons for believing that the war 
and the draft law which supports it were 
both unconstitutional. 

THE DEFENSE relies pi-imarUy here 
on a World War II draft con- 
spiracy case called Keegan vs. 
United States, in which the Su- 
preme Court said: "One with innocent 
motives, who honesUy believes a law is 
unconstitutional and, therefore, not obli- 
gatory, may well counsel that the law 
shall not be obeyed; that its command 
shall be resisted until a court shall have 
held it valM . . ." 

Another possible defense is that the 
draft card turn-ins in which defendants 
engaged were not in violation of the 
draft law, which has no specific prohibi- 
tion against turning in cards, but were 
rather, "symboUc speech" — a form of 
speaking out on public issues by means 
of nonviolent unprovocative conduct. 

The defense may also allege prejudi- 
cial handling of the trial by the judge; 
that his final charge was in error in a 
number of respects; and that there just 
plain wasn't any evidence to support the 
government's change that the defendants 
entered into a criminal agreement with 
each other to violate the draft law. 

Tea For Two 
Suits Thieu To T 

402 Electorol Votes 

By Stan Levco 

The public announcements on the re- 
sults of the Paris peace talks from Xuan 
Van Thuy. spokesman for Hanoi, and 
Averill Harriman. spokesman for Wash- 
ington, have differed sharply. And as 
long as these talks drag on. Premier 
Thieu. spokesman for South Vietnam, is 
satisfied, because the U.S. is retaining 
its fighting troops in Vietnam. 

Few know that the key to the lack of 
progress of the talks, and of Thieu 's 
satisfaction, is an unpublicized meeting 
between Harriman and Thuy last April 
The two diplomats held the first of their 
now famous tea talks in Alabama, a 
place considered neutral to the interests 
of both Hanoi and Washington. What 
transpired there has shaped the current 
progress of the peace talks. 

The meeting began with the usual dip- 
lomatic irrelevances. After about five 
hours. Harriman broke down. "Listen 
Thuy. My government and my people 
are sick and tired of this war. And we 
want peace at any price." 

Thuy smiled a cunning North Vietna- 
mese smile and said. "My people, too 
are tired of the war. And were prepared 
to surrender within a month." 

Both were anxious to stop the war. but 
diplomatic theory required a bitter 
struggle before any agreement could be 
reached. Harriman was stymied. Thuy 
sat silent. It was obvious the two leaders 
were at an impasse. 

Thuy, being a novice in such matters 
had Harriman explain to him the ramifi- 
cations of a quick settlement "If we 
agree too quickly both my government 
and your government will suspect we 
were too soft on each other. We've got 
to sweat, accuse, ignore, look tired and 
make the negotiations last a while so 
both sides will be satisfied that they" got 
the best deal they could." said Harri-

The article, which appears in the cur- 
rent August 10 edition, says New Party 
workers are hopeful of getting a place 
on the ballot in 39 States having a com- 
bined total of 402 electoral votes. It says 
that this Fourth Party movement's lead- 
ers "avoid talk of candidates" but "it 
IS no secret that Senator McCarthv Sen 
George McGovern. Mayor John Lindsay.' 
Sen. Mark Hatfield and. possibly. Gov 
Nelson Rockefeller would have some 
I ol lowing." 

Author Paul Wieck predicts. "The big 
push will come after Chicago if the out 
come of the Democratic and Republican 
conventions (platform, credentials fights 
and nominee) is completely unaccept- 
able. It explains, "If the outcome of 
either convention is such that the people 
would be attracted to the New Party 

iZ%.% "If' J" November, the effort 
will fade out" but New Party strategists 
are betting it will be a HumphreJ-S 

race this year. 

The article says New Party spokesmen 
report it will be "easy" to qual^y inT 

following 12 States having 'lis 'Jector'l 
V otcs . 

Arizona. Colorado. Delaware, Hawaii 
Indiana Iowa. Minnesota, Nebreska, New 
York. North Dakota. Rhode Island and

filed with 330.000 signatures up to Sept

electoral college total." Wieck writes 

Wieck points out that the Peace and 
Freedom Party, whose aims are akin to 
those of The New Party, is alreadv on 
the bal ot in three key states-Michigan 
Pennsylvania and New Jersey-and mav

he says, the New Party could" find its

Agreeing. Thuy shrewdly offered a few 
suggestions: Disagree on a meeting 
place. Make unrealistic requirements for 
meanmgful talks. Drop hints that the 
talks are going well. Deny them. Spread 
rumors of a major offensive. Drop more 
hints about how well the talks are going 
Deny them. And for good measure deny 
some hints that weren't even dropped. 

Harriman approved of Thuy's sugges 
tions and added a few of his own So the 
two men spent days secretly adopting 
plans for improving the peace talks. 

Rather than reveal the rest of their 
plot and spoil the story. I suggest you 
check your local newspaper for the next

Granf For Hampshire College 

Franklin Patterson, President of Hamp- 
shire College, has announced a $4,500 
Library planning grant from the Edu- 
cational Facilities Laboratories. The 
grant will be used to develop methods of 
predicting changes in technology and 
assessing its effect on library building, 
functions, and organization. Robert Tay- 
lor, Director of the Library, wiU sup- 
ervise the inquiry. 

Hampshire will break ground for the 
Library in October so that the building 
may be ready for the first group of stu- 
dents in 1970. But if this building is to 
incorporate advantageously the techno- 
logical innovations which are numerous 
and rapidly changing, library planners 
must find ways of evaluating these in- 
novations according to Hampshire's 

The Hampshire Library will be both a 
repository of information and an ex- 
perimenting communications center. In- 
formation in various forms — (books, 
records, films, lectures, computer pro^ 
grams)— will be stored there. But in- 
formation will also be transmitted from 
the Library to the user by means such 
as television, computer terminals, tele- 
type, and telephone. 

Hampshire planners are, therefore, 
concerned with three general problems: 
First, how will communications techno- 
logy influence routine library process- 
ing and information storage, retrieval 
and display. An interesting example of 
possible obsolescense lies in the recent 
development of new vehicles, such as 
gas, flame, lasers and fluids, for the 
movement of messages. These may de- 
mand conduits of a radically different 
nature than those presently used. Fur- 
thermore, Hampshire wants to know 
what possibilities there are for cooper- 
ative activity among the college and 
public libraries and what effect these 
activities will have on library organiza- 
tion and administration. 

Secondly, Hampshire's planners are 
concerned with how quickly library us- 
ers can accept change and whether a 
library building can be designed to ser- 
vice users and experiment with techno- 
logical innovations at the same time. 

From this information about the im- 
pact of technology on library design 
and on user attitudes, Hampshire's plan- 
ners will then be able to predict the 
general design pattern for future col- 
lege libraries and what problems they 
must solve, if they are to take advan- 
tage of technological innovation.

LNS Moves To Montague 

The Liberation News Service, official 
voice of the youthful, left-wing politicos, 
has moved its operation, presses, wire 
service equipment and staff from New 
York City to Montague. Not without 
some problems, however. 

The home base of the news service, 
the farm owned by Amherst College 
graduate Marshall Bloom, was under at- 
tack last Monday by what appeared to 
be a rival group from New York. 

Kidnapping, larceny and assault com- 
plaints against 13 from New York were 
issued Tuesday by the Franklin County 
District Court following the alleged in- 
vasion of the home. 

Police Chief Edward Hughes said a 
group mvaded the home of Bloom, about 
midnight Monday and held Bloom and 
eight or nine guests captives for more 
than six hours. 

Hughes said Kathy Hutchinson, 26 of 
New York, one of the guests was forced 
to sign a $6000 check. 

"The problem seems to be an internal 
dispute between two groups of hippies - 
Hughes said. 

The publishing firm of LNS is now 
known as the New Media Project. Part- 
ner with Bloom is Ray Mungo. former 
editor of the BU News. 

The business is described as a publish- 
ing firm for books and magazines to 
give the hippie point of view. Mungo 

founded Liberation News Service to pro 
vide news to the underground press. 

As the week went on, however, the 
question of who was to blame for what 
was fogged as both sides in the hippie 
dispute issued charges. It was rumored 
at the beginning of the week that Mungo 
and Bloom would eventually drop the 
charges against the 13 from New York. 

McCarthy Takes A Stand 

Senator Eugene McCarthy was the 
first presidential candidate to come out 
with a strong plan for attacking the 
problems of unemployment in the slums. 
While other candidates floundered with 
phrases about law and order, McCarthy 
issued a position paper which made gov- 
ernment the "employer of last re.sort.'" 

F(Jlowing are excerpLs from his state- 

Since 1946, the United States has been 
committed to assuring employment for 
all Americans. But the promise of the 
1946 Employment Act has not been hon 
ored. Instead, there has grown up in our 
cities a colony of the unemployed— living 
with an unemployment rate greater than 
that which the entire nation experienced 
during the depression. 

Some evidence . suggests that the 
employment condition in the ghetto is 
getting worse as industry continues to 
flee the central city. 

The crisis of our cities is a direct re 
suit of our failure to produce jobs. A 

man without a job is a man with no 
future and no hope. 
Government must help 

If the private sector cannot produce 
the jobs necessary, the government must 
be the employer of the last resort The 
President's Commission on Automation 
and Technology reported a potential of 
5..3 million jobs in the public service 

We must (also) stimulate the private 
sector to create new jobs on an unpre 
cedented .scale. 

We call then for a new employment 
policy for the ghetto^to create new 
jobs, and new kinds of jobs for the poor 
of our inner cities. Such a new policy 
must summon the resources and com'- 
mitment of the public and private st?c- 
tors alike. And it may move immodi- 
ately to guarantee full access for the 
unemployed in four critical fields.

Next Week... 

Matt Zunic was fired as UMass 
basketball coach in 1963. The rea- 
son given : too much lip for the re- 
ferees. There was, in particular, a 
two-point loss to Canisius that year 
and a stormy debate between Zunic 
and a ref. 

The students who were shocked 
at the dismissal of the popular 
coach and who banded in protest 
have since departed from the U- 
Mass scene. But Zunic, like the 
ghost of Christmas-past, remains 
to haunt the athletic department, 
eager to call out each violation of 
athletic rules in and around the 
Boyden Building. And he remains 
firm in his belief that his demise 
involved far more than a spat with 
an official during the heat of a

The Week in Sports 

By Jan CuHey 

Westchester Riches 

Middle-aged golfers with expanding 
waistlines took heart Sunday as they 
nervously watched one of their own 
make a spectacular comeback on the 
links. Julius Boros. the old man in golf 
at 48. exploded out of a trap and sank 
a 12 foot putt on the final green to win 
the Westchester Golf Classic by one shot. 

His 272 hole total was just one above 
those carded by defending champion 
Jack Nicklaus. rookie Bob Murphy and 
Don Sikes. Nicklaus had been under the 
weather all week with a virus and play- 
ed most of the course doped up with 
pills. • 

The Westchester is the richest of all 
golf tournaments with Boros taking home 
$50,000 and the three second place win- 
ners each taking $20,416 in prize money. 
For Big Jules it was his second major 
tournament victory in a month— he won 
the PGA in July, the oldest ever to win 
that title— and it was just another one 
of his golfing miracles. 

Immortal Babe 

It was 20 years ago last Friday that 
headlines in every paper in the nation 
proclaimed: "Babe Ruth Is Dead at 53." 
The Babe's untimely death brought to a 
close one of the most glorious careers 
in baseball, and one that has not been 
equalled since, nor is it likely that it 
ever will. 

George Herman Ruth set many rec 
ords in his time, most of them at the 
plate, and the two generations of base- 
ball players since then have left most 
of them intact. 

The Mantle Maris assault on his home- 
run record total for one season may have 
been legitimate. But the point in dispute 
is that the Babe hit his home runs in a 
shorter season than the one in which 
Mantle and Maris accomplished their 

The Bambino's record of 714 home 
runs in his career may never fall. No 
one has seriously challenged that record, 
and Willie Mays and Hank Aaron, the 
only active players in the majors who 
have a shot at it. say they will gladly 
finish a distant second to Ruth. Mays 
has 579 so far. but he is 37 and retire- 
ment looms in his not too distant future. 
Aaron has 502 at the age of 34, and most 
give him the best chance of equalling or 
surpassing Ruth. Aaron says he will be 
glad to settle for 650. which he figures 
to be his maximum in the time he has 
left to play. 

Major league players and sports- 
writers remain in awe of Babe Ruth, 
and he is revered like a god. The play- 
ers seem reluctant to even think of 

breaking any of his records. Sportsmen 
like him are far and few between, per 
haps only a once in a lifetime phenome- 
non, and any tribute payed to him seems 
madequate in light of what he did for 

Cub Courting 

When a pitcher is warned about throw- 
mg illegal pitches in a game bv the 
umpire, shouldn't the umpire remove 
him from the game? Such was not the 
case m the Sunday contest between the 
Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago Cubs 
and now manager Leo Durocher is 
threatening to take umpire Chris Pele 
koudas to court. 

Pelekoudas alleged that Cub reliefer 
Phil Regan was throwing an illegal vase- 
line ball. The incident started a series 
of heated discussions with Pelekoudas 
and Durocher and three other Cubs 
were ejected from the game, but Regan 
stayed in. 

The first argument came when the 
plate umpire called a ball on Regan for 
throwing the illegal pitch to Mack Jones. 
Pelekoudas relented and reversed his 
call, but when Jones filed out on a 2-2 
pitch. Pelekoudas ruled it an illegal pitch 
and allowed Jones to hit again. Durocher 
came out of the dugout to protest. 

After Pelekoudas inspected the sweat- 
band inside Regan's hat. he informed 
the manager that he had found traces 
of "a substance." The Cub manager 
lost his temper and was tossed out of 
the game by first base umpire Mel Stei- 
ner. Cub outfielder Al Spangler was also 
bounced when he charged umpire Shag 

Durocher charged that Pelekoudas 
was ruining Regan's career, and pointed 
out that the rule book states that if the 
ball was a spitball, the pitcher is sup- 
posed to be removed from the game 
after being warned by the ump. Regan 
at no time went to his mouth. 

Regan denied that he had vaseline on 
his cap and called Pelekoudas a liar for 
accusing him of such action. Durocher 
has threatened to take the umpire to 
court and has demanded an investigation 
by the baseball commissioner's office. 

Durocher has become the hope of all 
Chicago Cubs fans these days. When 
Durocher was managing the New York 
Giants back in 1951, he led them in a 
miracle charge to overcome the Brook- 
lyn Dodgers with a 13»^ game deficit. 
The Giants and the Dodgers went into a 
three game playoff. Many are the fans 
who would like to see him do it again, 
and ironically enough the situation is 
about the same. The Cards are leading 
the Cubs by 15% games as they are tied 
with Atlanta for fourth. 

Next Year? 

The Monday morning blahs weren't 
half so crippling this week after the Red 
Sox had ended their weekend stint 
against the Detroit Tigers. The Sox lost 
Friday. 4 0,, against Dennis McLain who 
notched his 25th victory and still re- 
mains unbeaten on the road. 

Tiger catcher Bill Freehan's home 
run belt in the top of the eleventh spoiled 
Saturday afternoon. The Red Sox were 
playing like it was last season and they 
were still in contention for the pennant 
as Ken Harrelson drove his 32nd homer 
to tie the game up at 9 9 in the bottom 
of the ninth. The Martin-Parnell-Cole- 
man team enlivened the game with their 
between the pitch and hit account of the 
sky, clouds and sun in Boston. The Fen 
way Bards far outdid themselves this 

Pizarro limited the Bengals to four 
hits on the way to his 4-1 win Sunday. 
Mike Andrews, who has been on a hitting 
rampage, had his nine game streak 
broken, although he had only one chance, 
striking out in the first and laying down 
a sacrifice bunt and walking twice. 

When the Tigers left town, no one was 
talking about the Red Sox bringing the 
flag back to Fenway Park again this 
year. It was the last chance for the Sox 
to put a dent in the Tiger lead, but the 
Fates were against them. For the Red 
Sox to even tie the Tigers, they have to 
win 31 of their last 38 games. The Tigers 
need only to win 20 of their remaining 
40 to take it. But the Sox still have a 
crack at second place, and compared 
to their usual second division finishes, 
the fans who will grumble will be few 
and far between. Maybe next year, when 
the Sox have their team intact again, 
they could win the AL race. 

Rip Van Winkle 

When Satchel Paige dons No. 65 for 
the Atlanta Braves Friday night, he will 
become the oldest major league pitcher 
in history, and he will set out to win a 
pension plan. 

The legendary hurier will make his 
first start on Hank Aaron Night, and the 
No. 65 represents more than just a num- 
ber on the roster. Satch needs only 158 
more days to become eligible for the 
five year pension plan which pays $250 
at the age of 65. Braves President 
William C. Bartholomay has said he will 
keep Paige on until 1969 when he will 
become eligible for the pension. Paige 
will act as an advisor and part time 
pitcher. In his last start in a Kansas 
City uniform. Paige pitched three score 
less innings of ball against the Red Sox 
in 1965. After that he stayed on in Kan 
sas as a deputy sheriff. 

The lithe. 6' 4" pitcher was scouted by 
Atlanta when he was pitching for an All- 
Star team around Seattle. Paige quipped 
that it must have been a scout with an 
eye for young talent who signed him. 
He sounded a little like Rip Van Winkle 
as he asked how the pitchers were pitch 
ing to the hitters these days.

Champion Chompion 

Forward Pass, the lodestar of three- 
year-olds, was beaten by Whitney's 
Chompion in the Travers Stakes at 
Saratoga, which is regarded as one of 
the most desirable prizes in the realm 
of thoroughbred racing for three-year- 

Chompion was merely repeating his- 
tory as his sire, Tompion, had won the 
Travers Stakes in I960 on the same 
kind of rainy day and muddy course. 
Chompion scored the upset by pacing a 
2:044/5 in the mile and a quarter test. 
Calumet Farm's Forward Pass was the 
4-5 favorite and was previously regard- 
ed as the outstanding colt for hi.s age in 

The betting had been in favor of For- 
ward Pass, and those who put $2 on 
Chompion collected only $31.20. Chom- 
[)ion was the field's lightweight, packing 
only 114 pounds against the top burden 
of 126 carried by Forward Pass. 

PGA Split 

There were rumblings in the golf 
world last week as the professional 
golfers split from the parent PGA or- 
ganization. The multi-million dollar 
structure shook under the withdrawal, 
and shaking the most was the American 
Broadcasting Company which had 
signed a contract to broadcast virtually 
every big tournament except the Mas- 

The whole situation is somewhat rem- 
iniscent of the recent football hassle, 
but money is not the dominant issue. 
The management of the PGA maintain 
that they are still open to negotiations 
with the players, but the players are 
intent upon conducting their own tour. 
The players promised that they would' 
not boycott the present tour and will 
finish out the year and play in at least 
the Bob Hope Classic at Palm Desert, 
Calif., and the Doral at Miami. 

The executives of the PGA said in 
Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., that their 
tournament committee, which included 
Jack Nicklaus, Frank Beard, Gardner 
Dickinson and Doug Ford, had been 
abolished. None of them said that they 
would cancel their membership as the 
result of their action. 

Bud Wilkinson, formerly the Okla- 
homa football coach and formerly a 
candidate for the U.S. Senate is ex- 
pected to be tapped for the job of man- 
aging the pro tournament golfers or- 
ganization. Wilkinson, who is now a 
sFx>rtscaster, was unavailable for com- 
ment, but the pros felt he was "recep- 
tive " to the idea. His new position would 
'X? that of commissioner of big time 
golf tournaments. 

Long Battle 

Maurice Stokes was once the bright- 
est prospect of the Cincinnati Royals in 
the National Basketball Association, but 
;m injury in a 1958 playoff game 
changed all of that. 

August 21. 1968 

Today Stokes is an invalid confined 
to a wheelchair or to a bed. Occasionally 
he leaves the Good Samaritan Hospital 
m Cincinnati. He is making progress 
after suffering post-traumatic encepha- 
lopathy, which is encephalitis brought 
on by a blow to the head. For weeks he 
was like a vegetable ai>d near death. 
But now he can speak, although halt- 
mgly, and does handicraft. 

Each year a benefit game is held at 
Kutsher's Country Cluh, with the pro- 
ceeds gong to a fund to pay Stokes' 
medical bills. Jack Twyman, a former 
teammate of Stokes, has been his legal 
guardian since the accident. He has de- 
voted an endless number of hours to 
Stokes, and receives far more than he 
gives as he watches Stokes' slow pro- 

Winston Brown also spends hours with 
Stokes, shaving him, dressing him. He 
brings him home at Christmas-time to 
be with Brown's family. 

Glancing Askance 

UMass' John Canty signed a contract 
with the Houston Astros last weekend 
The southpaw hurier. who was an All- 
Yankee Conference in 1967 after an 8-2 
season during which he fanned 145 will 
report to the Astros training camp next 
spring. Canty was sidelined this year in 
mid-season with an arm injury. Hous- 
ton signed Canty on the recommendation 
of scout Stan Benjamin of Greenfield 
. . . Boston College's Brendan McCarthy, 
who once did Greg Landry in on the 
football field, was signed by the Detroit 
Lions. McCarthy was obtained from the 
Green Bay Packers, and nou- Landry and 
McCarthy are teammates. The Lions 
gave an undisclt^sed future draft pick in 
the exchange. A Lions spokesman said 
McCarthy would be used to fill in for 
Nick Eddie, who underwent knee sur- 
gery and will be sidelined for at least 
six to eight weeks . . . Heavyweight box- 
ing champion Joe Frazier was slightly 
injured in a motorcycle accident. Frazier 
suffered a sprained foot and bruises, and 
he was commended by his doctor for 
wearing boots and a helmet . . . Balti- 
more Orioles' catcher Andy Etchebarren 
will be out perhaps for the remainder of 
the season with a broken bone in his 
little right finger when struck by a foul 
tip in a game with the Athletics . . . 
UMass football players will return to 
campus for drills Aug. 28. They will be 
housed in John F. Kennedy Upper House 
. . . The Detroit Tigers still have a solid 
lead in the American League pennant 
race. The team has a batting average of 
.227, fifth pice in the AL team batting 
averages. There is only one of the mound 
staff with an ERA under 3.19. McLain 
is leading the Tiger pack with a healthy 
1.87. None of the Detroit batters are in 
the Top Ten . . . 

Montreal has secured its National 
Baseball League franchise. The team 
sponsors beat the deadline by 24 hours 
with a check for $1,120,000, a down pay- 
ment on the $10 million needed, pres- 

ented to NL President Warren Giles. 
John McHale was named president and 
chief executive of the still nameless team 
and Jim Fanning was named general 
manager. Lester B. Pearson was named 
honorary president of the outfit 
Hank Bauer, fired by the Orioles a 
month ago, was named to manage Kan- 
sas City's American League expansion 
team, the Royals, next year. Bauer will 
take coaches Billy Hunter, as well as 
Orioles' Whitey Herzog, now the farm 
director for the New York Mets . . 
Patriots are good for another year in 
Boston, so says F>resident Billy Sullivan. 
Rumors have been afloat all summer 
that the Pats would be leaving Bean- 
town for another city if plans for a 
stadium wtre not forthcoming from the 
state legislature or some private con- 
cern . . The Celtics were sold to P. 
Ballantine and Sons of Newark, N.J., for 
a reported $3.5 million, but the sale will 
not affect the home of the Celtics. Jack 
Waldron, senior vice president of the 
beer company and former Celtics presi- 
dent, will be resuming his chores once 
again. Red Auerbach was taken com- 
pletely by surprise and learned of the 
trade in a telephone call ... Joe Namath 
and his golden knee are giving the New 
York Jets some headaches again. Na- 
math had to leave the camp and miss 
the game with the Pats. Babe Parilli 
stepped in to start against his former 
teammates . . . Doug Rader, the hard 
hitting Astros player in more ways than 
one, has received more than 40 threaten- 
ing letters since the melee involving 
Kevin Collins. Rader has had a special 
detail assigned to his room by the New 
York police. Teammate Rusty Staub, 
who also has red hair, pasted his name 
on his uniform, just to be sure they 
didn't get the wrong guy. 

There is a bronze statue outside of 
Busch Stadium these days and if it 
weren't for the letters on the side, no 
one would know that it was Stan 
Musial. The Musial marble is as bad as 
the Hurd painting of LBJ, but Musial 
didn't even have the chance to reject it. 
Stan the Man looks like he is wearing a 
money belt, baggy pants and a West 
Virginia coal miner's hat. One cannot be 
sure whether the tears wept at the de- 
dication were for the emotionalism in- 
volved or for that atrocious likeness

maybe disruptive, nnaybe not, but trou-

USSPA Director 
Refuses Induction 

Johnston, the executive director of 
the U.S. Student Press Association, 
has refused to be inducted into the 
armed services. 

Johnston, a former editor of The 
Michian Dally at the University of 
Michigan, said his decision to resist 
the draft "is a personal decision, and 
does not constitute in any way an en- 
dorsement explicit or implied by the 
U.S. Student Press Association of my 
action, or of any such actions by any- 
one at any time or place." 

In explaining his decision, he said, 
"I have made every possible and rea- 
sonable effort to cooperate with my 
draft board in Atlanta, Ga. In res- 
ponse they have harassed me at every 
opportunity. For almost two years 
they have dealt with my case arbi- 
trarily and capriciously at every hand, 
failing even to maintain a Board - 
appointed appeal agent to assist me 
as required by law." 

He added, "All this has been in 
spite of every reasonable representa- 
tion on my part to them, and on the 
part of many friends and colleagues, 
of my situation. Under the circum- 
stances, Ujey leave me no recourse 
other than to refuse to be inducted 
through such arrogant, medieval pro- 
cedures, and to seek a full and hope- 
fully fair hearing in the courts.." 

mented than before. 

Now isolated into a movement at- 
tempting to "radicalize society," mem- 
bers from Students for a Democratic 
Society (SDS) and the original Strike 
Committee operate from the loose-knit 
Liberation School in the shadow of 
Butler Library. 

Another offshoot group, the Moder- 
ate Students for a Reconstructed Uni- 
versity (SRU), are concerned" solely 
with changing the university. They re- 
cently received a $10,000 grant from 
the Ford Foundation to study restruc- 
turing of the university. 

Prof. Herbert A. Deane, assistant pro- 
vost for academic planning, recently 
made public a draft memorandum — sup- 
ported by David B. Truman, vice-presi- 
dent of the university — which would 
give students a voice in formulating 
new rules of discipline. Professor Deane 
said "enormous chemges" would' be re- 
quired in university statutes. 

Under the plcin new disciplinary rules 
would be formulated by a committee of 
eight students, eight faculty members, 
four deans, and a director of student 
affairs. Students would also have a role 
in disciplinary procedures through all- 
student tribunals from each school in 
the university. They would hear cases 
involving violations of rules of conduct, 
including demonstrations. 

Resignation noted 

Dr. Kirk has read the memorandum 
but made no public statement in regard 
to it. All aiithority for rules rests in the 
office of the president. 

But the recent resignation of Edward 
W. Barrett, dean of the Columbia Grad- 
uate School of Journalism, illustrates 
the over-riding concern of students and 
many faculty members with the need 
for broad changes in university policy, 
not just discipline alone. 

In resigning, Mr. Barrett said, "I sim- 
ply find myself in disagreement with the 
basic outlook of a majority of those 
who make university policy. I should 
add that, while I have real sympathy 
for many who seek constructive change, 
I have no sympathy whatever for the 
young SDS group who seek destruc- 

But the Alumni Federation of Colum- 
bia, pushing off on a quite different 
tack, has just rejected the idea of any 
fundamental change in the university 
structure, including any student role in 
disciplinary proceedings or curriculum 

The federation's newly issued pro- 
posals for Columbia's future call for 
firm disciplinary action against the pro- 
testors of last spring and a clear set of 
limits for student protests and punish- 
ments for violators.

Fellowship For Wrisley 

Albert L. Wrisley, assistant professor 
of Food Science and Technology at 
UMass. has been awarded the 1968-1969 
Graduate Fellowship from the Heinz 
National Restaurant Foundation. 

The $2000 fellowship is part of a 
program to improve teacher qualifica- 
tions for hospitality industry education. 
It is offered on a competitive basis to a 
person who is enrolled in a graduate 
degree program to improve his skills as 
a teacher or administrator of occupa- 
tional food service programs. Wrisley 
is a candidate for a Ph.D. degree in 
business administration at UMass. 

An independent scholarship commit- 
tee composed of educators and admin- 
istrators in the food service field se- 
lected Prof. Wrisley over 19 other can- 
didates throughout the country. 

A graduate of Cornell University in 
1950, he received his M.A. from Michi- 
gan State in 1963. Before coming to 
UMass he managed restaurants and 
hotels in the eastern and southern Uni- 
ted States. 

Since joining the UMass hotel and 
restaurant management faculty in 1961 
Prof. Wrisley has been involved in ex- 
panding the department's program. He 
is the author of a series of manuals 
dealing with food service management 

Brounthol Applauded 

An article written by Dr. Gerard 
Braunthal, professor of government, has 
been selected by a council of librarians 
as one of the 10 outstanding magazine 
articles published in the month of May, 
it was announced recently by the Frank- 
lin Square-Mayfair Agency. 

In "Death of the German Economic 
Miracle." written for Current History 
Magazine. Dr. Braunthal analyzed the 
recent recession in the German econo- 
my in terms of governmental attempts 
to ease the slump and the long range 
succe.«s of these attempts. 

The coalition government formed in 
Germany in 1966 when the recession con- 
tributed to the defeat of the previous 
government has successfully averted the 
economic crisis, according to Dr. Braun- 
thal. Forthcoming national elections, 
however, may split the coalition and 
force the government to make impor- 
tant changes in relief measures. 

Cabinet members Karl Schiller and 
Franz- Josef Strauss, through a series 
of compromises, were able to achieve a in the economy, said Braunthal. 
They represent opposing political par- 
ties, however, and the compromises may 
break down when their parties compete 
against each other in the 1969 elec- 
tions. Dr. Braunthal also noted the op- 
po.sition of the German labor unions 
whose views on the economic situation 
must be listened to in an election year. 


Other outstanding magazine articles 
noted by the librarians included "The 
Reverend Mr. Coffin, Dr. Spock, and 
the ACLU," by Joseph W. Bishop, Jr., 
which appeared in Harper's and David 
Riesman's "An Exchange with Brazil- 
ian Students," published in American 

Born in Gera, Germany, Dr. Braun- 
thal has been a UMass faculty member 
since 1954. A noted expert on German 
affairs, his other publications include a 
book, "The Federation of German In- 
dustry in Politics" and many articles 
for scholarly journals. 

$30,000 Research Awarded 

..UMass department of environmental 
sciences at the Waltham Field Station 
has been awarded a $30,000 research 
contract by the U.S. Public Health Ser- 
vice to study long term, low level ef 
fects of air pollutants on the product- 
ivity of greenhouse vegetable and flor- 
icultural crops.

NSA Congress 

Big Decisions This Week 

By Phil Semas 

College Press Service 

While thousamls of student.s troojx'd 
across the country campaigninR against 
the American political establishment 
this winter and spring, the National 
Student Association was forced to sit 
on the sidelines.. 

NSA is a non-profit, tax exempt cor- 
[x)ration which accepts government and 
foundation grants. As such, it is pro- 
hibited from legislative lobbying and 
other political activities. Thus, its in- 
volvement in this year's ix>litical cam- 
paigns was confined to asking the can- 
didates for their views on Vietnam, the 
draft, the 18-year-old vote, higher edu- 
cation, and other issues of interest to 

Not only is NSA prevented from get- 
ting directly involved in political cam- 
paigns, but its tax status also prevents 
it from working on other political goals 
.set up by the organization, according 
to its president, Ed Schwartz. For ex- 
ample, when Congress held hearings on 
lowering the voting age to 18, a move 
long favored by NSA's membership, 
Schwartz was able to testify only be- 
cause he was invited. NSA's tax status 
prohibits it from volunteering such tes- 
timony, which the law says is lobbying. 

Schwartz says that during the past 
year many student body presidents 
have criticized NSA for its inability to 
work for legislative and ixilitical goals 
on the national level and to help in lo- 
cal and state fights over such issues as 
tuition increases, state aid' for higher 
education, and the 18-year-old vote. 

The NSA officers, working with sev- 
eral of the student body presidents, 
have come up with a 7jro{)osal aimed 
at solving this problem. The prop.>sal, 
which will be considered at NSA's Na- 
tional Congress now underu'ay at Kan- 
sas State Univei"sity, would divide NSA 
into two organizations. 

The first, which will retain the name 
National Student Asscx-iation, would be 
lax exempt but would not accept gov- 
ernments of foundation grants. As such, 
it would l)e allowed to lobby on the 
national, state, and local levels and en- 
gage in all other political activities ex- 
cept endorsing and working for specific 
candidates for public office. (To en- 
dor.«e candidates, it would have to give 
up its tax exempt status completely, a 
move which may be proposed by some 
delegates to the Congn\ss.) 

NSA would be supjK>rted completely 
by dues, publication sales, private con- 
tributions, and its service division, which 
is developing such programs as a na- 

tional student record club in order to 
bring in funds. 

The second organization, to be called 
the National Student Institute, would 
operate all NSA programs funded by 
foundation and government grants. This 
organization would' have no members 
but would offer its services only to 
NSA members -and its officers and 
board of directors would Iw? the same a?. 

Among the programs which such an 
organization would run would be NSA's 
Educational Reform Center, which just 
received a three-year $315,000 grant 
from the Ford Foundation; its Tutorial 
Assistance Center, which works with 
student tutorial programs and is funded' 
by the Office of Economic Opportunity; 
and a series of conferences on American 
foreign policy planned for next year 
under a grant from the Stern Family 

At a recent meeting of the Coalition 
for an Open Convention in Chicago, 
there was talk of trying to ad.ioum the 
NSA Congress early so the students 
could go to Chicago to participate in 

the various marches and other actions 
being planned l}eft)re and during the 
Democratic Convention. But after a re- 
cent meeting of student body presidents 
in Washington, an early ad.ioumment is 
now less likely, according to Schawartz. 
One or more of the Presidential can- 
didates may also address the Congress. 

-At last year's Congress, Students 
fora Democratic Society ran a counter- 
convention. That seems unlikely this 
year. SDS leaders from Chicago and 
New York met recently and decided it 
"wasn't worth it," according to one of 
their members. But Schwartz says there 
probably will Ik* a number of SDS mem- 
bers at the Congress, most of whom 
will try to advance their views at work- 
shops and other sessions. 

-Each afternoon the delegates will 
meet in workshops dealing with five 
areas — student power, education re- 
form, drugs, community action pro- 
grams, and international affairs. The 
NSA staff hopes these workshops will 
lx)th generate ideas for activities on 
local campuses and create links be- 
tween campuses on major activities. 

NSA will release a survey of the 
delegates on gains made by the students 
during the year. Preliminary results 
from about 100 schools indicate that 
more than 40 instituted pass-fail grad- 
ing systems, 53 started student course 
and teacher evaluations, 26 set up ex- 
[)erimental colleges, 49 liberalized cur- 
fews, and 23 adopted Joint Statement 
on Rights and Freedoms of Students.

This week's paper bag cover should keep 
everyone happy — whether you'd rather 
wrap it or bag it. 

This summer's Statesman was jobs, school, or post-graduate 

an experiment. It had its bad 
points as well as its good, but we'd 
like to think that the latter out- 
weighed the foiTTier. Fi-om all the 
kind comments we've had, it seems 
that our magazine format is more 
suited to the quiet UMass summer 
life than that of a newspaper. 

Our main purpose was 
to stimulate thought, and ~ 
this column in particular 
attempted to present 
thought-provoking com- 
mentaiy from a variety 
of sources. Again, from 
the comments we've re- 
ceived it appears that we 
succeeded . . . 

To all of you who will 
be returning to other col- 
leges this fall, we wish 
you the best and hope 
we've made your stay a 
little more interesting. As 
for all you UMies who'll 
be returning to campus in 
a fev/ weeks, the Daily 
Collegian will resume 
publication on Registra- 
tion Day. Don't forget to 
pick up a copy . . . 

Special thanks go to all 
those students who con- 
tributed to The States- 
man. Most hold, or have 
held, editorial positions 
on the Daily Collegian, 
and many took time out 
from summer newspaper 

activities to write for us . . . 

As Summer 1968 gallops toward 
the pumpkin patch, and the rag- 
weed sUrts to pollinate, the edi- 
tors of The Statesman are looking 
forward to an exciting fall under 
our more widely-known brand 
name. See you in a few weeks. 

This issue of The Statesman also marks 
the end of sports editor Tom FitzGeralds col- 
umn "On the Off -Season" (.«ee page 10). Dur- 
ing the "off-season" Tom has also been sports 
editor of the Daily Collegia),, and everyone 
agrees that the FitzGerald regime produced' 
sports pages second to no other college paper in 
the country. When he leaves early this fall a 
journalistic void will be created. 

To say merely "thanks for a job well done" 
IS to understate both our feelings and his jour- 
nalistic performance. His lively, flowing style 
has made sports reading interesting even for 
those who are not sports enthusiasts. His satiri- 
cal remarks have been caustic at times, parti- 
cularly when taking the Athletic Department 
to task on such perennials as the Twenty For- 
mula. And his well-aimed barbs are always 
based on fact. 

Those of us who have worked for him have 
profited from his knowledge and experience. He 
has been a strict task-master, and we have often 
felt inadequate before the standards which he 
set. And those of us who have worked with him 
for three years now know the meaning of the 
word "perfection". 

The sports staff and the Daily Collegian are 
losing an editor, but on a personal level each of 
us is losing a friend. Perhaps the greatest tri- 
bute we can offer is to try to adhere to the 
standards which he set. 

Good luck, Tom.

The Death of a Program 

This is the story of how a small 
group of students opposed to the war 
in Vietnam tmintenitionally caused the 
death of the college intern program on 
Capitol Hill. 

It started last summer when college 
students working in Congressional of- 
fices began circulating petitions against 
the war. One of the students said the 
petitions were designed to "convince 
the policy-makers that some of the most 
respected elements of our young society 
are concerned with our actions in Viet- 

The student interns thought they had 
the right to express their opinions about 
the war. Several Congressmen appar- 
ently disagreed, and told their interns 
not to sign the petition. Many members 
of the Congressional Establishment were 
furious; the interns were to be seen 
and not heard. 

Another group of interns started a 
counter-petition in favor of the war. 
This group, however, raised few eye- 

For the first time last summer, the 
President did not meet with the interns. 
The summer ended, and most people 
forgot about the controversy caused by 
the anti-war petitions. 

But Congress did not forget, and when 
the final supplemental appropriation bill 
passed last December no funds were 
made available for the student intern 
program. At the time, few people even 
realized the program had been drop- 
ped, and the action was not reported 
in the press. But an irritant had been 
erased, and peace would return to Cap- 
itol Hill. 

Not all Congressmen were in favor 
of scrapping the program, however, and 
a handful of House members made a

last-ditch attempt to revive it last week. 
They failed. 

The last effort came during the House 
debate on Congress' own budget for the 
new fiscal year. The House bill under 
consideration had an amendment attach- 
ed which specifically denied funds to the 
intern program. Rep. Thomas Rees CD- 
Calif.) offered an amendment to strike 
out the restrictive language, so that 
extra funds would be aviilable for Con- 
gressmen who want summer intenv. 

The amount at stake was only about 
$327, 000, a pittance by the common 
standards of Congressional spending. 
But Rep. George W. Andrews (D Ala.) 
and other conservatives argued that the 
funds should be denied in the name of 

Rep. Basil L. Whitener (D-N.C.) said, 
"In my 12 years in this body, I be- 
lieve that if I were asked to cast a 
vote on the biggest waste of money ever 
engaged in by this body, it would be 
the expenditure of money in this so- 
called college intern program." Oppon- 
ents of the program offered only sub 
tie hints as to their real reasons for 
opposing it. Rep. L. Mendel Rivers (D- 
S.C.) said, "I think it is a good thing 
to eliminate this program, because these 
boys are so smart and know so much 
that if we had not terminated this pro- 
gram the Speaker's job v^rould have 
been in jeopardy." 

The few members w4io ^x>ke in favor 
of the program tried to shed light on 
why it was being dropped. Rep. John 
Moss (D-Calif.) argued, "The plea here 
that we are doing this cutting to save 
money is specious. It is being done to 
punish a group of people because their 
conduct did not accord with the views 
of some members of this body who 
just are not in touch with reality ..." 

Rep. Silvio Con! ^ (R-Mass.) pointed 
out that the same appropriations bill 
which denies funds for the intern pro- 
gram provides money for 78 additional 
policemen to the Capitol Police force. 
"It has become a hazard to come to 
work here at the Capit<ri every day 
because there are so many policemen 
around that you trip all over them." 

Rep. William Ryan (D-N.Y.) said the 
program "was eliminated in a fit of 
petulance on the part of the House 
in reaction to the fact that so many 
interns, like young people all over the 
country, and like 80 per cent of the 
voters in the recent Democratic primar- 
ies, expressed doubts about the Viet- 
nam policy." 

Rep. Hervey Machen (D-Md.) inter- 
preted the House action as a way of 
"serving notice to the young people 
of this country that we cannot afford 
dissent and we want complete control 
over the people we bring in to see the 
government in operation." 

When the vote was taken, few mem- 
bers of the House were on the floor. 
Funds for the intern program were de- 
nied, 66 to 14. 

Despite the efforts of a majority of 
Congressmen, there still are some in- 
terns working on the Hill this summer. 
Nobody knows just how many, but the 
number is definitely far less than the 
1,300 students on the payroll last sum- 

Some of the interns working this sum- 
mer are not getting paid at all. Others 
are getting paid out of their Congress- 
man's personal funds, and a few Con- 
gressmen have been able to squeeze 
enough money out d their existing of- 
fice appropriation to hire an interti. 

Officially, however, the program is 
dead, and peace has returned to Cap- 
itol Hill in the summertime.

Swingshifters: Observations and Opinions 

By Joyce Van Hall 

Everyone has heand of 'swinging 
freshmen' before, but not everyone 
realizes that there are currently 350 
'swing-shifters' on the UMass campus. 
Chosen by the Admissions staff, these 
freshmen are participating in a pro- 
gram des,igned to create more class 
oixjnings for qualified students who, 
under normal circumstances, would 
have to be turned away due to lack 
of space. 

Under the swing-shift pmgram, stu- 
dents begin their college work imme- 
diately upon graduating from high 
school. The equivalent of a Fall se- 
mester's work is completed over the 
summer, and the students return home 
for the normal first semester. They 
come back to the campus to complete 
their freshman year during the Spring 
semester. By then there is sufficient 
space to accommodate them. 

Students are chosen on the basis of 
many factors, and the high school aca- 
demic records of this group are very 
similar to those of freshmen admitted 
for the regular Fall semester. Com- 
paring the college averages of the 
swing-shifters to those admitted on a 
regular basis, the results are relative- 
ly the same. 

The ratio of returning students is 


Humphrey States 
The Obvious 

Hubert Humphrey last week announced 
officially what most people believed he 
felt all the time— complete acceptance 
of President Johnson's war policies and 
pledged to carry them through. 

Humphrey made his declaration on 
VietJiam during a television interview 
in Washington, several hours before his 
arrival Sunday afternoon to take com- 
mand of his campaign for the Demo- 
cratic presidential nomination in Chi- 

It was Humphrey's most forthright 
statement of support for Johnson's poli- 
cies since he became a presidential can- 

Declaring the policies of President 
Johnson "basically sound." the Vice 
President said, "I do not believe the 
American people want the next Presi- 
dent of the United States to either uni- 
laterally withdraw or to leave our forces 
-subject to unlimited punishment from 
the North or in any way to make ad- 
justment or political concessions that 
would make the sacrifices that we have 
made in the past seem meaningless." 
Flys With Hawks 

August 28, 1968 

very different, however: the swing- 
shifters boast better than a 909J re- 
turn. Perhaps one reason for this is 
that they must wait out a semester in 
the Fall anyway, thus automatically 
meeting the University's "semester 
off" rule if they don't meet the aca- 
demic requirements. 

There are, of course, certain advan- 
tages and disadvantages to the pro- 
gram. One advantage cited by Mr. 
Ernest Beals, assistant director of ad- 
missions, is the fact that in coming 
directly from high school, there is no 
•academic gap' for the students, and 
that while they are sitting out the 
Fall semester they have the oppor- 
tunity to take courses at another in- 
stitution to pick up extra credits. 

Several swing - shifters interviewed 
disagreed with the worth of that point, 
however. They felt that it was "too 
much to go to school for twelve 
months straight" and that the five- 
month waiting period will allow time 
to "forget what we learned here over 
the semester, especially material from 
so-called continuous courses". 

Ofie good aspect of the waiting per- 
iod is that students will have the op- 
portunity to work for five months, as

penses in the summer are considerably 

He appeared on the NBC interview 
program. "Meet the Press." 

The Vice President had been under 
mounting pressure from hawk forces, 
led by Texas Gov. John Connally, and 
braced by backing from the Southern 

Mr. Humphrey, faced with choosing 
between the doves and the hawks, mov- 
ed to the camp of the hawk and made 
his peace on that issue with the pro- 
Johnson forces. 
Rejects Peace Plank 

Asked about a four-point plank on 
Vietnam offered Friday by a coalition 
of dove factions on the platform com- 
mittee, Mr. Humphrey said flatly: 

"That will not be the platform of 
this convention." 

His statement apE)eared to wipe out 
any hope by the doves that> they might 
pressure the Vice President to find a 
position to the left of Mr. Johnson. 

The dove plank called for: 

— A halt in the bombing. 

—Encouragement to South Vietnam 
to negotiate a political settlement with 
the National Liberation Front on behedf 
of the Viet Cong. 

—Reduction of U.S. offensive action 
and an early withdrawal of American 

—Mutual withdrawal of both U. S. 
and North Vietnam military forces from 
South Vietnam. 

Mr. Humphrey's statement made it 

lower than during the regular semes- 
ter. This will aid some of the students 
who are concerned about financing 
their education. 

The fact that the courses given in 
the summer are condensed and con- 
centrated represents a distinct disad- 
vantage, however. Academically there 
is much more pressure on the swing- 
shifters. One girl echoed this by say- 
ing "This is very true. The courses 
are too scrunched up. The only way 
you can study for an exam is to cram. 
They give assignments right up until 
the last minute." Also, a few felt that 
the summer climate itself was not 
good for studying: "It's very hot and 
hard to concentrate." 

According to Mr. Beals, swing- 
shiftei-s in the past have done very 
well on the whole. They became or- 
iented quickly, perhaps because when 
they come here there are less people 
and less confusion, and they are ac- 
cepted readily by their classmates 
when returning in the spring. Mr. 
Beals also believes that the students 
profit from their experience, enjoy 
themselves, and do well. 

When asked if they would come if 
they had it to do all over again, al- 
most all said "definitely, yes." It 
seems the swing-shifters are here to 

apparent that he had no intention of 
supporting a bombing halt without some 
-sort of reciprocal military action by 
North Vietnam. 

He did not back a plank that would 
encourage an eventual coalition in Viet- 
nam but he made it clear that he would 
not tolerate any plank that would impose 
a coalition government on South Vietnam. 

Humphrey campaign officials have 
said privately tha. while there might 
be a reference to a bombing halt in the 
Vietnam plank, it would spell out in 
general terms under what conditions a 
halt would be approved. 
No Criticism 

The bombing halt appears to be the 
key issue of the difference between Mr. 
Humphrey and the Doves, although the 
Dove faction in the preamble to its four- 
point plank implies criticism of Mr. 
Johnson's past policies in Vietnam. 

Humphrey aides say they will be ada- 
mant in their position that there be no 
criticism of Mr. Johnson in the plat- 

Mr. Humphrey brushed off sugges- 
tions that the difference on Vitanam 
would seriously splinter the party. 

He said it was "as traditional in the 
Democratic Party as the Fourth of July 
is for the nation" to have divisions at 
a convention and said he was confident 
of unity of a November election fight. 

But Humphrey's strategists do not 

privately reflect Mr. Humphrey's public 
display of confidence and unity. 

They fear supporters of Sen. Eugene 
McCarthy will not take an active part 
in the Democratic campaign if they do 
not get their ways on Vietnam. 

Mr. Humphrey said he does not have 
hope for early end to the war. 

But he said "I do not want word of 
mine or any platform of the Democratic 
Party giving the hope to Hanoi that if 
they just hold out and continue the 
fighting, continue the killing, continue 
the attacking, continue the shelling of 
the cities, that somewhere down the 
line they are going to get a better deal." 

Mr. Humphrey said the Republican 
and Democratic presidential nominees 
should make it clear to Hanoi that it 
cannot expect to find salvation in the 
election of a new pre.sident. Humphrey 
said he would appear prepared to work 
for peace and "walk an extra mile in 
honor and decency." 

He said, also, that hLs quest for a 
vice presidential running mate had not 
been restricted to any particular region 
of the country. 

He said he had not made any "pledges 
or deals." 

The Windy City 
Holds Ifs Breath 

Chicago is armed to the teeth. The 
event is the Democratic Party's selec- 
tion of a presidential candidate. The 
confrontation is between protesters of 
various sorts and the Chicago establish 
ment. a microcosm of the split between 
national leaders and people. 

Don Janson of the New York Times 
filed the following information about 
the build up of troops in the Windy 

This city became an armed camp over 
the weekend as more than 5,000 Na- 
tional Guardsmen arrived to protect 
Chicago from possible rioting during the 
Democratic National Convention this 

No Pretense 

In calling for the Guard, Mayor Ri- 
chard J. Daley dropped all pretense that 
Chicago was a calm and peaceful place 
to hold a convention of the country's 
ruling political party. The Mayor ex- 
pressed fear of possible "tumult, riot or 
mob disorder." 

Antiwar and anti-Administration 
forces plan massive demonstrations to 
protest "war and racist" policies of 
President Johnson and the expected 
nomination of Vice President Hum- 

In addition, authorities fear an explo 
sion in Negro ghettos, where living con- 
ditions are wretched and joblessness is 

The principal announced demonstra- 
tion will be oonducted by the National 
Mobilization Committee to End the War 
in Vietnam and the Youth International 

The major scheduled protest will come 

Wednesday, when demonstrators expect 
Vice President Hubert Humphrey to be 
nominated. Following an afternoon mass 
rally in Grant Park near the downtown 
Loop, thousands of marchers are ex- 
pected to move five miles to the vicinity 
of the International Amphitheatre in 
the stockyards for a "confrontation." 

Barbed Wire et al 

The presence of the Guard is only one 
evidence of the most elaborate set of 
precautions in memory to head off trou 
ble at a political convention. 

A seven -foot -high fence, topped by 
barbed wire, nearly surrounds the con- 
vention hall in the stockyards. 

Bullet-proof metal panels fill in the 
gaps between the pillars of the hall's 
entrance portico. 

About 1,500 uniformed policemen will 
patrol the area around the amphithea- 
tre, directed from a command post just 
outside the hall. 

Some will be on the roof with rifles. 
Police helicopters will fly sui-veillance 
overhead, e<iuip{>ed with high-intensity 
lights to scan the roofs and dark corners 
of the neighborhood 

Safety In Numbers 

Policemen outside will communicate 
by walkie-talkie with detectives inside. 

Delegates may not be able to spot 
them, but the area will be swarming 
with Federal marshals. Secret Service 
men and Federal Bureau of Inve.stiga- 
tion agents as well. 

The visitors will find downtown 
streets saturated with policemen same 
at each corner and at mid block. All 
have been ordered to begin wearing riot 
helmets this weekend. The entire 11,900- 
man force has gone on 12-hour shifts 
until the convention ends. 

Jittery authorities have overlooked 
few details. Policemen began manning 
every city pumping station this week- 
end against threats to disrupt Chicago's 
water supply. Every manhole in the vi- 
cinity ol the Amphitheatre has been 
sealed with tar against the possibility of 
giving a sniper or saboteur a hiding 

As an added precaution. 6.000 troops 
received riot training at Fort Hood. 
Tex., last week in case they are needed 
to put down cjnvention-week disorders. 

Groups planning demonstrations this 
week arc largely white. Many support- 
ers of Senator Eugene J. McCarthy for 
President are expected to join antiwar 
and anti-Johnson picketing and rallies 
and marches, even though they have 
been warned by the candidate to stay 
out of Chicago for self-protection. 

Among Negro groups, only the Poor 
Peoples Campaign has announced dem- 
onstrations, but riots by the unorganized 
have never been announced, and au- 
thorities fear a convention in which 
President Johnson and Mayor Daley 
could play prominent roles might pro- 
v\fie a focus for the discontented 

In any case, each time a delegate has 
to show his credentials at one of the 
security checkpoints set up fw the con- 

vention, he will be reminded that battles 
on the floor over platform or credentials 
or candidates do not represent the total 
picture of dissent in Chicago for the 
1968 Democratic Convention. 

Pre-convention Paranoia 

The attitude of the people of the citv 
in the face of the Democratic Conven- 
tion has been something less than 
friendly. Dick Goldstein of the \illajre 
Voice noted this as well a.s the faction- 
alism developing among the protesters 
Dusk is kind to the International 
Amphitheatre. Random floodlights illu- 
mine empty space, and the low mist 
throws a lavender haze over everything 
There is an eerie beauty to this sec- 
tion of stockyards and slaughter houses 
four miles from the city's downtown 
Loop. An odor of animal dung hangs in 
the air. Vans arrive and depart, filled 
with accusing animal eyes. The long 
buildings exude a shrill metallic sound: 
the shrieking of slaughtered pigs. 
No wonder local kids call this place 
the Pigsty. With its whitewashed isola- 
tion, the old amphitheatre is a perfect 
setting for the Democratic convention. 

No orange-blossom euphoria in Chi- 
cago this year, and none of that formica 
finesse. We meet to choose our next 
President like cattle barons, amid dust 
and livestock. 

To date, the pigsty is anything but 
secured trom the prying eyes of insur- 
gents. The fence which will surround the 
arena is only half-complete, and its 
barbed wire icing has yet to be added. 
Surrounding streets are still open to 
traffic and no plainclothesmen can be 
seen on the root tops. In fact, the police 
are nowhere in sight, although tourists 
who wander too near the delegate's en- 
trance (where they are constructing a 
pasteboard white house portico) may be 
contronled by the searchlight from a 
hidden patrol car or two. 

In short, none of that legendary pre- 
convention paranoia is actually visiule 
yet. It's all underground, in those cor- 
ners of the mind where rumors chng like 

The blacks are silent and sullen, 'there 
are reports of heavy arms caches in 
housing projects. The Blackstone Rang- 
ers (Chicago's street iniantryj are 
pissed over recent congressional investi- 
gations of their anti-poverty allocations. 
And some ghetto residents are already 
stockpiling food and water. 
Direct Frustration 
The left is splintered into doctrinal 
and generational factions. The National 
Mobilization Committee (hereafter re- 
ferred to as the Mobe) has the allegi- 
ance of nearly 1(X) groups. 

But there are also the McCarthy peo- 
people, who will arrive in Chicago at 
the losing end of their crusade; some 
radical organizers consider this group 
the most potentially militant, because 
they will probably be the most directly 
frustrated as well. 
Finally, there are the freaks (Yippies. 

Th* StoteBmcm 



hoppers, and unaffiliated flower chil- 
dren). No one— not even the organizers 
—know what form their groovy agita- 
tion will take. The Festival of Life pro- 
gram now being prepared for Lincoln 
Park will provide local color for the 
press, and a flaking-off station for fati- 
gued demonstrators. 
But not even smoke - ins, grope - ins, 
and a Miss Yippie beauty contest can 
divert attention from the amphitheatre, 
vyhere on Wednesday night, August 28, 
upwards of 100,000 people are expected 
to march four miles through ghetto 
streets to make their presence felt. With 
Chicago's indigenous right wing as up- 
tight as the left, parade marshals are 
at least as apprehensive about the spec- 
tators along that arduous route as they 
are about the police. 

March Protection 

Of coi )cal papers have been filled 

with _.cco of the elaborate secui-ity 

arrangemenl:^ for their convention 
( right down to picture tours of the Cook 
County Prison yard, where officials are 
now prepared to house 10,(XX) suspects), 
but there has been no mention of police 
protection for the marchers themselves. 

The great unwritten story of this pre- 
convention season, according to some 
veteran protest— watchers, is the con- 
flict between federal authorities and lo- 
cal ofticials over control of security ar- 

Ihe outcome of this battle is of vital 
importance lor radicals, since they con- 
sider the Juscice Department elticient, 
if not sympathetic. Local law enforce- 
ment in Chicago has been a matter of 
concern (to use a 'I'lmesman's euphem- 
ism) to the lelt, and the announced pian 
to form a posse ol thousands of civilians 
to "protect " Cnicago during its long 
humid summer did little to soothe any- 
one's nerves. 

The fact that this scheme was vetoed 
by Mayor Richard Daley (as was a 
councilman's plan to iiouse prisoners un- 
derground in unujsed sewage pipesj was 
small consolation, because it is indicativa 
of a vast maiaise now sweeping this city 
— 'from the lugnt in Cicero to the plastic 
left in Oldtown. The greatest danger as 
convention lime nears is not the plots 
and counterplots one hears about daily, 
but the lack of communication between 
opposing factions. Nobody knows where 
anyoody else is at. 

rhis information gap is apparent in 
city officials whenever they negotiate 
with demonstrators. Deputy Mayor 
David Stahl, wiiose summer job this 
year is acting as liaison between the city 
and its hippies, has given VIP leaders 
no indication ol how the Chicago police 
plan to handle the protests. Most peace- 
ful demonstrations proceed with some 
concrete idea of which actions will bring 
what response. One result of the lack 
of such information was the recent me- 
lee at Grand Central Station. At worst. 
Chicago could experience that kind of 
scene on a vaster, bloodier scale.

McCarthy's Gift To America 

Win or lose. Senator Eugene McCarthy 
has changed American politics. This was 
the opinion last week of political ob- 
servors as McCarthy's chances for a 
win at the convention tonight took on 
a dimmer note. One observer. E. W. 
Kenworthy of the Times had this to 
say about the Senator's candidacy: 

It is hard to think of any man in 
recent history who has made such an 
impact on politics and policy in so short 
a time under such inauspicious circum- 
stances. Beginning with little money, no 
encouragement even from colleag- 
ues who agreed with him. no organiza- 
tion except a gaggle of old boys from 
the American Students Association and 
a bunch of college kids. McCarthy with- 
in four months had encouraged Sen- 
ator Robert F. Kennedy to put his fu- 
ture where his heart was. had discourag- 
ed an incumbent President from seeking 
another term, and had helped force the 
Administration to moderate its bombing 
of North Vietnam and modify its terms 
for initial negotiations. 

Reforms Likely 

Since then, McCarthy has made such 
an issue of the haphazard, antiquated, 
nonrepresentative manner of selecting 
national convention delegates in many 
states that the Democratic party will 
almost certainly have to reform its 
procedure for nominating a President. 

With an assist from Senator Edward 
Kennedy and Senator George McGov- 
ern, he has thrown the Administration 
into turmoil over the Vietnam plank, 
And. by running ahead of the Vice 
President in most polls, he has raised 
the specter of defeat for the President's 
candidate unless the President makes 
sufficient concessions on the Vietnam 
plank to satisfy large numbers of Mc- 
Govern supporters. 

After Wisconsin and Oregon and the 
assassination of Robert Kennedy. Mc 
Carthy was the only one left with the 
remotest chance of heading off the Vice 
President. And so those gnawing ques- 
tions of the independent voters had 
some relevance-has he got the stuff to 
be President? Would he be a good Pres- 

McCarthy's Conc^tion 

The questions still have some rel- 
evance even if Hubert Humphrey has 
the 1600 delegates he says he has, be 
cause McCarthy has said a good deal 
about his concept of the Presidential 
office, and those ideas may get some 
attention in the future. 

Obviously the answers to the questioas 
would depend on whether one agreed 
with McCarthy's conception and whet- 
her McCarthy met his own prescrip- 

He does not conceive of the Pres- 
idency as primarily an administrative 
office, and he regards executive talent 

Hampshire College Looks To future 

Private higher education in the 
United States is doomed unless major 
efforts are undertaken to provide co 
operative educational facilities and 
tuition financing, according to Dr. 
Franklin Patterson. Hampshire Col- 
lege president. 

"Private colleges must collaborate 
with our growing public institutions 
to avoid duplication of facilities, and 
we must find a way for families to 
finance private education for their 
children." Dr. Patterson says, point 
ing to the increasingly prohibitive 
costs of higher education." Unless 
these steps are taken, private higher 
education is doomed." 

Hampshire College, cited as "a col- 
lege for the 21st Century." 's begin- 
ning construction of its first three 
educational buildings on a 500 acre 
tract of rolling meadow off West 
Street this summer, and will admit 
its first group of 251 students in Sept- 
ember. 1970. 

Formed according to Dr. Patterson, 
to maintain the balance between 
private and public higher education 
in the four college area in the face 
of mammouth growth by UMass, 
Hampshire College will experiment 
with ways of obtaining greater under- 
graduate educational productivity at 
tuition rates comparable with sur- 
rounding private colleges. 

"We will demonstrate the educa- 
tional and financial advantages of 
cooperative activity among four 
closely situated private colleges and 
a large public university." Dr. Pat 
terson says. 

Turning to soaring tuition costs in 
private colleges, which he said in 
most cases do not reflect the much 
higher actual costs of education per 
student. Dr. Patterson suggests an 
educational opportunity bank, where- 
by .students would borrow theii- full 
tuition with loans to be repaid over 
a 30 or 40 year period, at a rate of 
1 per cent of gross income for each 
S3000 of the loan, 

"Private undergraduate colleges 
face great social, curricular and 
financial pressures," says Dr. Pat- 
terson. "Except for a few institu 
tions whose endowments and achieve 
ments still insulate them, the inde 
pendent colleges and many of the 
university undergraduate colleges suf- 
fer from chronic financial disorders, 
archaic curriculums and .social isola 
lion. For precisely these rea.sons. Mount Holyoke and Smith 
colleges and UMass have become 
partners in the creation of Hampshire 

"We have set out to create an un- 
dergraduate program that reconciles 
human meaning to the technological 
drives of modern society. We will 
apply to liberal education new knowl- 

edge about the nature of human com 
munication and new advances in the 
technology of information transfer. 
The Hampshire program will be inde- 
pendent, but our students will have 
access to academic facilities at the 
neighboring colleges," .states Patter 

Dr. Paterson says the new college 
will have no sororities or fraternities 
and no varsity athletics, but will have 
students who are intellectually as 
able as surrounding colleges, and who 
will be willing to take the responsi- 
bility of their own education. 

"We will place a greater emphasis 
on the .students' education on self. 
We will not view education as proven 
by the number of hours spent in a 
classroom, but will judge our stu 
dents by series of examinations rath 
er than a sequence of course comple 
tions." He adds that the familiar 
freshman to .senior designations will 
be dropped. 

Hampshire College, in the midst 
of its primary fund raising drive, has 
raised nearly half of its first financial 
goal of $24,500,000. "While our total 
need for construction, curriculum 
planning and adniinistrati\e support 
in the next decade is $45 million, we an additional $12 million 
by 1970 to re.-ich our $24,500,000 goal." 
Dr. Patterson says. "We expect to $10 million from individual 
donors. $6.7 million from private 
foundations, $.300,000 from corpora- 
tions, $2.5 million from federal grants 
and $5 million from federal mortgage 

Outlining the new college's strong 
financial beginnings. Dr. Patterson 
.says a $6 million donation from Har 
old F. Johnson, a retired New York 
attorney and a 1918 Amherst College 
alumnus, a ,$3 million challenge grant 
from the Ford Foundation, two 
$7.50,000 federal grants and major 
gifts and grants from national founda- 
tions and private citizens have al 
ready been received. In addition, ap^ 
proval for a $1.2 million housing and 
urban development grant is expected 

Also, the Avalon Found;>tion of New 
York has awarded Hampshire College 
a $2.50,000 grant for use in construction 
of the proposed Hampshire College 
library, and an anonymous $192,000 
gift has been received for develop- 
ment of a mathematics science cur- 
riculum and construction of an elec- 
tronic music laboratory. 

The initial construction phase will $8 million, with the library, the

as no particular qualification for it. 
Administration is the responsbility of

In short, the general welfare-or, as 
McCarthy puts it, "the establishment of 
an order of justice" is the President's 
peculiar responsibility. 

The office not be "personalized," 
as he believes Lyndon Johnson has per 
sonalized it, "because it belongs not 
to the man who holds it but to the 
people of this nation," 

He believes a strong President is not 
one who uses power arbitrarily but one 
who uses forcefully the powers assigned 
to him by the Constitution, and this 
means respect for the powers assigned 
to the Congress. 

Finally, he thinks Cabinet members 
should have a con.stituency of their own,

and forcefully in the councils of Gov 

'Done His Thing* 

In sum. then, McCarthy envisions the 
ideal President as a kind of combin 
ation of philosopher . .statesman, and 
moral leader. 

Whether he could have realized thi^ 
conception, made it workable and ac 
ceptable to a pragmatic America of 
scrambling interests, may never be 

But at least, since last Nov. 30 he has 

as his youthful supporters would say— 
"done his thing. And he has promi.sed 
to continue doing "up to Novemlx'r 5 
and beyond that." 


Kirk Concedes 

"Kirk Must Go ' had become one of 
the slogans of the student uprising at 
Columbia University. Last Friday, Dr. 
Grayson Kirk said he would go. 

Kirk, 64. and the trustees agreed to 
his retirement, to be effective at some 
as yet unspecified time, when Dr. An 
drew W. Cordier, 67, dean of the School 
of International Affairs and former dip 
lomat who was United Nations Under 
secretary until 1962. would temporarily 
take over as acting president. 

Kirk's impending departure had been 
rumored for some time, amid specula 
tion whether a delay in a change of the 
top leadership might not threaten to 
interfere with the university's re opening 
next month. 

Still, the trustees hesitated, in large 
part undoubtedly because they disliked 
creating the impression that students had 
dismissed the president. 
Prospect of Normalcy 

Last week.. Kirk said he would retire 
"to insure the prospect <rf more normal

He will become president emeritus and 
will continue to press the $200-million 
fund drive that he launched late in 1967. 
In his 15 year tenure. Kirk has raised 
Columbia's endowment from .slightly 
more than $100-million to $400.6 million. 

Observers of Columbia's travail gen- 
erally agreed that Kirk was a victim of 
historic circumstances. He was a tradi- 
tionalist when universities require rapid 
change in their governing structure. 
Hemmed in by a charter that provides 
for a self perpetuating Board of Trus- 
tees and gives little university- wide 
power to the faculty and less to students, 
he was ill-suited to act as spur for re- 

He inherited a university that, in re- 
action to almost half a century of strong 
personal government under Nicholas 
Murray Butler, had turned itself into a 
confederation of semi autonomous schools 
and departments. From 1948 to 1953, 
Dwight Eisenhower, who had no philoso- 
phy of academic politics, continued this 
course, and Kirk only began efforts tow- 
ard a new cohesion when the pressures 
mounted two years ago. 

August 28. 1968 

The hostilities fanned by the war in 
Vietnam, the university's relations to 
defense, and the growing racial strife, 
particularly at an institution that had 
become vulnerable in its relationship 
with neighboring Harlem, eroded the ad- 
ministration's support. Kirk was hamper- 
ed by the lack of an adaptable govern 
mental machinery and by a personal 
style— shy to some, aloof to others— that 
cut him off from the campus community. 

The question now is what will be re- 
quired, first, to pacify the campus suf- 
ficiently to prevent a new strike next 
month and, second, how to bring about 
la.sting reforms.. 

Cordier Appointment 

The answer to the first part of that 
question is closely linked to the appoint- 
ment of Cordier. 

Even if the irreconcilably anti-authori- 
tarian opposition by New Left extremists 
is disregarded, student reaction was not 
promising. Regular student council 
spokesmen called the lack of consulta- 
tion with students in the selection of 
Cordier "an affront" and proof of trus 
tee "incompetence." 

Those who agreed with the trustees' 
choice stress Cordier's experience in the 

United Nations, in the hope that this will 
qualify him to reunite the warring par- 

Others who are more skeptical regard 
the appointment as proof of an unbridge 
able gap between trustees and the mod- 
ern campus mood. 
Career a Handicap? 

They question whether or not a young- 
er man would be more likely to rebuild 
the communication lines with youth; 
whether or not a career in the govern- 
mental establishment is, at this point, 
an insuperable handicap. 

Some of these observers inevitably 
thought of Berkeley's choice of Dr. Mar- 
tin Meyerson as the acting president— 
a young, unorthodox academician, who 
picked up the pieces after the 1964 re- 
volt, before he moved on to the presi- 
dency of the State University of New 
York at Buffalo. 

Ironically, the view of the radicals 
who say that the acting president is of 
no importance one way or the other- 
only the system matters— may be closer 
to the heart of the crisis.. 

This does not mean that the radicals' 
demands can or should be met. But Cor- 
dier's success depends on whether the 
faculty committee can produce a pros- 
pectus for a university-wide way of life 
which the majority of students and all 
the trustees can and will accept 

Since such a proposal may have to 
limit the powers of the trustees, increase 
and define the role of the students and 
substantially boost the responsibilities of 
the faculty, this is not an easy task, and 
hardly one in which the acting president 
can, if he is to succeed, be cast in the 
role of the trustees' obedient sen/ant.

Leverett Democrats have unanimous- 
ly endorsed Dwight Scandrctt of Pel- 
ham for the office of state senator from 
the Franklin-Hampshirt District. 

The endorsement followed a discus- 
sion of Scandrett's views on taxation, 
small farms and local control of bill- 
boards. A committee has been organized 
to campaign for Scandnett before the 
September 17 primary and the Novem- 
ber election. 

The group also endorsed Sen. Eugene 
McCarthy for the presidency and voted 
to send telegrams supporting his can- 
didacy to members of the Massachusetts

Matt Zunic Revisited: 

Who's to Blame for What? 

There must have been tears in the 
eyes of the Boston Globe reporter who 
wrote, 'Matt Zunic has been the lone- 
liest man on the UMass Ccimpus for five 
years. The big guy who once made bas- 
ketball a major sport at Boston Univer- 
sity and at UMass today walks the Am- 
herst streets alone. 

"He tries to plead his case with the 
University trustees or the faculty senate 
but he is tilting at windmills. Zunic, the 
lowest paid full professor at UMass, is 
hidden in a closet like a naughty child." 

The continuation of the Zunic affair, 
now five years after the fact, represents 
an old wound to the justly sensitive 
athletic department, and the bandages 
have recently been ripped. For Zunic 
has not been content to send verbose 
appeals for aid to the governor, attor- 
ney general, legislators and seemingly 
everybody else except Ann Landers, or 
appear before the trustees, faculty senate 
and athletic council. 

Success in Boston 

Now he has solicited the powerful 
support of his old chums in the sports 
press. Although apparently unsuccess- 
ful with some of the big city papers in 
the state, he won ample space in the 
Globe, which depicted him as the martyr 
of university bureaucracy. The reader 
was led to believe that Zunic is the rein- 
carnation of the western hero who 
moaned, "What do you do when you're 
branded?" He is the new Odysseus, 
seeking to regain his rightful throne de- 
spite the fickle gods. 

The nervy implication of the Globe 
article that Zunic single-handedly made 
basketball a major sport at UMass is 
akin to a declaration by John Lennon that 
he made the Beatles great, without the 
help of Brian Epstein, the manager who 
lit the fire. What was Warren McGuirk, 
the redoubtable UMass athletic director, 
doing after he hired Zunic? Sitting in 
the Cage and rapping a line-up card on 
his knuckles? The point is that, particu- 
larly in the major collegiate sports, 
there is more to a sport than drills, 
games and recruiting. Scheduling for one 
thing, and politicking within leagues, for 
another. Dividing up scholarships, for 

Treating the circumstances surround- 
ing the rise and demise of Matt Zunic 
as UMass basketball coach is compli- 
cated by the harshly one-sided argu- 
ments given on either side of his battle 
to "vindicate my name." Some back- 
ground is urgently needed at this point, 
however, in the wake of articles in the 
Globe and other papers, since few of the 
present students were around in Zunic's 
heyday and few of the administrators, 
for that matter. 



By Tom FitzGerald 

Mikan, Then West 

An outstanding football-basketball- 
baseball man at George Washington 
University in the '40's, he played and 
coached basketball in the old National 
League with the Dow Chemical Com- 
pany team, a fact that should endear 
him to the UMass radical element. After 
a Navy hitch, he joined the Washington 
Caps of the NBA and in a championship 
series against the old Minneapolis 
Lakers, he had to battle George Mikan 
in the pivot. 

He was assistant football and bas- 
ketball coach at George Washington for 
two years, then began in 1952 his seven 
profitable years as head hoop coach at 
Boston University. In 1959, his last year, 
he brought B.U. to the NCAA eastern 
finals against Jerry West and West Vir- 
ginia. His captain that year was one 
Jackie Leaman. 

The Terriers lost the finals by four 
points, but Zunic was scoijped up by Mc- 
Guirk, eager to find a winning formula 
within the unsavory architecture of 
Curry Hicks Cage. Zunic was called a 
full professor of physical education 
(with only his bachelor's degree, mind 
you) because until the University was 
granted fiscal autonomy by the state in 
1962, such was the only method of at- 
tracting top flight talent— you know, 
with money. His hiring, he says, was 
accompanied by a gentlemen's agree- 
ment, whatever that is in college sports, 
that he would have tenure as basketball 
coach after three years. 

Satisfied With What? 

Four years later, those years steeped 
in Yankee Conference prestige and high- 
lighted by the Redmen's first trip to the 
NCAA regional, Zunic was reassigned 
(i.e. fired) within the athletic depart- 
ment. Johnny Orr was hired from 
scores of applicants for the head posi- 
tion, while Zunic's assistant, Leaman, 
was kept, obviously being groomed for 
greater things. After the decision to 
change coaches had been reached, Zunic 
and his attorney confronted President 
Lederle, the trustees and the athletic 
council in an apparently germ-free at- 
mosphere. According to records Zunic 
said he "would be satisfied to remain at 
the University . . . knowing that he 
could remain and could teach and would 
not be assigned to such work which 
not be familiar to him." That was 
March, 1963. 

But Zunic has not been satisfied, and 
today he hovers through the corridors 
of the Boyden Building like the ghost of 
Hamlet's father. If he is the lowest paid 
full professor at UMass, it should be 
pointed out, he is one of the highest 
paid non-coaching teachers in Boyden. 
He receives $13,300 for ten months of 
teaching first-aid and safety courses and 
guiding general physical education 
classes in basketball, badminton and 
volleyball, plus $1,220 for similar work 
in the summer. Mad magazine might ask 
here, "How much does your dad make?" 

Or Vice Versa 

I find Zunic's insistence that his rea- 
son for remaining at UMass these many 
years has been to purify his reputation, 
interesting. There are three main points 
of view on his dismissal and consequent 
fall from grace, or vice versa: 

1) The traditional theory- — Zunic was 
reassigned because of his violent re- 
monstrances against officials during 
games. His rantings and ravings were 
frequently spiced with language unfit 
for the President's Council on Youth 
Fitness. In this respect, he outshone 
even Mother of Voices. There was the 
legendary Canisius affair, a game that 
was literally all over but the shouting, 
between Zunic and an official. To be 
sure, the officiating in that game, played 
in Buffalo in 1963, was said by less pre- 
judiced observers to have contributed 
substantially to a 54-52 UMass loss. In 
such cases, however, it was the Univer- 
sity's reputation at stake. 

2) The Zunic theory— Zunic was fired 
because the athletic department harbor 
ed a grudge against him for unearthing 
(so the story goes) two rule violations 
by the football staff. First, in 1959 the 
son of a UMass official was allowed to 
participate, in violation, he says, of 
NCAA rules on transfer students. The 
boy had attended Tufts (and a junior 
college) the year before he donned Red- 
man garb, Zunic insists. Second, UMass 
jumped the gun, he says, in preseason 
practice in 1960. Zunic maintains that he 
brought the light of truth to the athletic 
council on the early practice, but had 
not done so. out of sheer ignorance, on 
the football-playing son. At any rate, he 
says, his heretofore respected name was 
thereafter taken in vain. 

3) The revisionist theory Zunic was 
dismissed because his conduct was un 
becoming a coach and a full profes.sor 

Th« Stotesmcm 



and his language was unfit for anything 
but barroom consumption, but, most 
important, several schools had dropped 
UMass from their basketball schedules 
strictly because of Zunic's courtside 
manner. The theory thus overlaps the 
traditional theory. Although some stock 
may be taken in the Zunic theory, it is 
after all based only on Zunic's assump- 
tions. And, really now, if the grudge 
was so deep as to cause his dismissal 
in 1963, why not in 1960, or 1961, when 
there would have been no arguments 
about his three year tenure? True, the 
'62 '63 team had fallen to a 12-12 record, 
but UMass could hardly have called the 
dismissal a move for better future per- 
formances. Zunic had coached winning 

Increasingly Offensive 

What put the administration in a diffi- 
cult position was that Zunic was known 
as an excellent coach, a master game 
.strategist who had recruited .some of 
the greatest names in UMass basketball 
—Rodger Twitchell. Pete Bernard, Char- 
lie O'Rourke, Tim Edwards, Clarence 

The revisionist theory, then, is the 
most plausible of the three, particularly 
in light of the fact that Zunic became 
most offensive during his fourth year. 
Insiders say Warren McGuirk had hoped 
Zunic would master his emotions through 
the years but the reverse happened and 
the school was being disgraced. The 
Canisius game really did it. McGuirk. 
with a notably sensitive ear for bad 
publicity, has not himself revealed that 
UMass was being shunned by other 
schools: his reluctance, and that of other 
officials, to speak out. however, has 
protected Zunic from extra embarrass- 
ment and inadvertently has kept the 
controversy raging. 

Zunic charges that his dismissal vi- 
olated the Veteran's Tenure Act, the 
Bill of Rights, a Supreme Court rul- 
ing that a teacher may not be dis- 
missed for criticizing his school sys- 
tem, and University policy. The charge 
loses impact in light of the fact that 
Zunic, in the company of his lawyer. 
President Lederle, the trustees and the 
athletic council said he would be satis- 
fied to remain in a teaching capacity. 

He insists that his presence at« 
is to vindicate his name (by which 
statement I gather that he would like 
Dean McGuirk to proclaim his vindi- 
cation and the apologies of UMass in 
a public gathering on the Amherst town 
green). At the same time, however, he 
begins and ends all his pleas to state 
and school officials by saying he de- 
serves at least another $4,000 a year. 
Whether or not he actually should be 
receiving the average full professor's 
pay, which Zunic says is $17,500, he is 
trying to make the most of a technical- 
ity (being hired as a professor) that 
cannot occur again because the fiscally 
autonomous University no longer has to 
re.sort to passing out academic badges 
to recruit coaches. 

"During the past five years- -during 

August 28, 1968 

which I earned my master's degree- - 
I've fallen to the bottom of the grade." 
Zunic says. That is, his salary has 
grown several thousand dollars but the 
professor's pay range has jumped in 
greater proportion. He actually makes 
$300 over the minimum. "They threw 
me that bone when I got my master's 
degree," he says. 

Crying Foul 

While this weighty philosophical dis- 
cussion has been going on, he has seen 
fit to appoint himself Marshal Matt 
(Dillon) Zunic, champion of oppressed 
teachers. "Someone has to speak out 
for people in education who are being 
discriminated against," he told the Globe. 
"I hope my case will help others." 

He has evidently left a few Dale 
Carnegie books unfinished by searching 
for every rules violation committed by 
his colleagues in the Boyden Building. 
One administrator likens Zunic, in this 
regard, to a man who would cry foul 
every time a co-worker drives his car 
into the wrong space in a parking lot. 
An athletic department spokesman takes 
another step, saying Zunic was no Gil 
Thorp himself where eligibility rules 
were concerned. It's as if Nancy Sinatra 
told Herb Alpert he had a lousy voice. 
Zunic admits he stretched the rules on 
one occasion when he took two players 
on a trip just before they registered 
at UMass, but otherwise, he says, his 
record was immaculate. 

He alludes suspiciously to the amount 
of unrecorded, outside money used to 
subsidize UMass athletes, but the fact 
is that, with the Yankee Conference 
scholarship limit, UMass has enough 
laundry money without having to enlist 
the Mafia. The Globe said, "To imple- 
ment his battle, Matt has become the 
conscience of the UMass athletic de- 
partment," But, much to the dismay of 
greedy reporters. Zunic has picked from 
all the hundreds of UMass athletes in 
the last five years, only a handful 
who competed illegally— a few football 
and hockey players who played while 
on academic probation, three football 
players who were given dining commons 
jobs while on full scholarships and an 
athlete who competed in different sports 
for five years. But such situations have 
been rectified, some before Zunic's in- 
quest, and the NCAA recently issued 
UMass a clean bill of health. 
Progress and Money 

Two points that Zunic brought up 
about athletic policy bear notice here. 

First, the NCAA doctrine that a stu- 
dent must progress at a normal pace 
toward a degree in order to compete 
is left to the whims of the athletic de- 
partment, and here, as at other schools, 
the intent of the ruling is loosely ap- 
plied. Since a student is normally al- 
lowed only ten semesters to fulfill his 
academic requirements at UMass, it 
would seem that one must earn at least 
twelve credits a semester, twenty-four 
a year, to be making normal progress. 
Zunic cited to the athletic council this 
year the case of a football player who 

has been allowed to compete dispite 
the fact he received only nineteen cred- 
its in his first year and fifteen in his 
second. According to the minutes of 
the meeting. "Chairman (George) Rich- 
ason stated that he had carefully check- 
ed the case of (the player) with Dean 
of Admissions William Tunis and that 
this student was not in violation of 
eligibility rules." That's right, he wasn't. 
Second, a double standard exists in 
determining eligibility for athletic and 
academic scholarships, both of which 
are presumed to be based on manifest 
financial need and scholastic potential. 
As long as an athlete surpasses the 
cumulative point average required of his 
class by one-tenth of a point, he is 
able to compete, and able to compete 
for money. The non-athlete, however, 
must have a cumulative average of at 
least 2.5, or at least a 3.0 in his most 
recent semester, to apply for aid. And 
the latter student does not benefit from 
the tutoring offered to athletes. 
Acts of "Genocide" 
All very interesting. But Zunic has 
questioned far more than University pol- 
icy while pleading his "case" in let- 
ters to the governor and attorney gen- 
eral. In one 3,000-word letter, he charg- 
ed that the University, after receiving 
fiscal autonomy, violated in many 
cases (e.g. his) a federal law passed 
in 1886. "Principles of Teachers Tenure 
Law was to protect them from the 
Spoils System and to give it Economic 
Security and Academic Freedom," he 
wrote. "We are employees of the State 
qnd loyal workers of the State and our 
rights should have been protected. . . 
By your passing Fiscal Autonomy, you 
have infringed the old doctrine that 
government of the people, by the people, 
for the people shall not perish from 
the earth." In passing the autonomy 
measure, he said, the state "hurt the 
employees here at the University and 
installed more powers into the hands of 
the Bureaucratic Administrators and 
power brings on arrogance." 

Curiously, he does not suggest an 
alternative to this horrible state of af- 
fairs, except, of course, for him to 
receive a larger share of the spoils. 
Meanwhile, he has maintained the flow 
of literature to the trustees, and in two 
different letters this year wrote that 
"acts of Genocide (?) have been used 
to hurt me financially." 

Perhaps some members of the ad- 
ministration and athletic department 
have been too harsh in their unavoidably 
biased judgments of the affair. Al- 
though Zunic has never been listed as 
above average on the annual faculty 
evaluations, according to one spokes- 
man, perhaps a full professor should 
indeed receive at least the average pay 
after nine years of service, regardless 
of how or what he teaches. 

Zunic, though, still sings his own ver- 
sion of the Folsom Prison Blues as 
he tries to bend the iron bars, tunnel 
through the dirt, everything except walk 
through the open door. 


The Week in Sports 

By Jan Curley 

Gene-Dick Sing Along 

Everything comes to him who waits 
and Dave Morehead waited 11 months 
before winning a game. Morehead, who 
was once one of the brightest pitchers 
the Red Sox had but his star has dim- 
med of late, pitched the Sox to a four 
hit shutout over the Cleveland Indians 
last Monday. So the week was off to 
a good start, but as has been the case 
in the Red Sox fairy tale, a happy 
beginning does not portend a happy 

In another highlight of the week, also 
In Cleveland, the Red Sox were bom 
barded by a non-English speaking Mex- 
ican who had pitched only two and two- 
thirds innings of major league ball. He 
was pitching against Jim Lomborg who 
was last year's Cy Young winner, but 
who is also trying to make a come- 
back fom the slopes of Squaw Valley. 
So much for that game the faster its 
forgotten, the happier everyone will be. 

And then there was Thursday night 
. . . That was the night that Joe Foy 
played for the Indians instead of the 
Red Sox. It was so hot at Municipal 
Stadium, you could have hard boiled 
an egg on home plate in a couple of 
minutes. The second inning was the 
disaster inning for Boston. A simple 
little ground ball was missed by Joe 
Foy, and before another breeze wafted 
through the stadium, the Indians had 
scored three runs against Ray Culp. 
Foy threw the ball into the dirt in 
front on Dalton Jones for Foy's 23rd 
error Dalton kept stabbing at the ball 
like it was a bug, and by the time 
he had killed the bug, two runs had 

If the Red Sox thought Cleveland was 
hot. they must have thought Baltimore 
was the terrestrial version of Dante's 
Inferno. Manager Dick Williams played 
"guess who's not playing tonight and 
guess who's on first" and won the game. 
Carl Yastrzemski made his debut at 
first base, and RBI leader Ken Har- 
relson spent most of the night collect- 
ing splinters on the bench. And he 
had Mike Andrews for company. When 
Jose Tartabull pulled a leg muscle, Har- 
relson had to replace his replacement. 

Sunday was another one of those days 
best forgotten. The game which was 
slated for nine innings ended up 18 
innings, Dick Williams was given the 
heave-ho, and Orioles manager Earl We- 
aver withdrew his protest because his 
team won the evening. The 100 degeee 
heat was oppressive, and everyone was 
glad the game was over, especially the 


players who looked like they had been 
swimming instead of playing baseball. 
When the frost is on the pumpkin 
this fall, there wUl be no merrymaking 
in Boston. All eyes will be shifted to 
Detroit. But all is not lost. After this 
week Eugene McCarthy may have some- 
thing in common with the Red Sox 
besides an appearance in Fenway Park. 
They could adopt a new theme song- 
"Hail Knight with the Woeful Count- 

No. 1 Ashe 

Lt. Arthur Ashe led an assault on the 
hallowed grass at Longwood Cricket Club 
and came out the victor as he downed 
the Boy Bopper, Bobby Lutz, 4 6, 6-3, 
8-10, 6-0 and 6-4. 

Lutz and Ashe slugged away at each 
other for two hours and 40 minutes in 
the heat of Chestnut Hill, and at the 
end of the duel, the crowd rase to 
their feet in thunderous applause for 
the most exciting match since Pancho 
Gonzales came from behind 0-2 to de- 
feat Ted Schroeder for the national 
championship 19 years ago. 

Ashe has been ranked No. 2 in the 
U.S. for the last three years, but this 
looks like the end of Arthur Avis. From 
now on it will be No. 1. Ashe is a 
second lieutenant stationed at West 
Point and attached to the Davis Cup 

Lutz had the gallery with him all the 
way. but the crowd wasn't confirming 
the Kerner Report. Ashe has always 
been popular in Chestnut Hill. But Lutz 
played like a vibrating kid as he at- 
tempted many bravura shots. 

Erik Van Dillen, whose name is al- 
most as familiar as that of Spiro T. 
Agnew, had ousted America's No. 1 seed, 
Charlie Pasarell on Turbulent Tues- 
day, and the prospects looked gloomy. 
Gene Scott, No. 8 seed in the U.S., 
had also fallen prey to Armistead Ne- 
ely, who had the lowly rank of 27. Davis 
Cup Captain Donald Dell blamed their 
poor showing on the weekend victory 
over Spain in the Cup competition. 

Cup competition has never looked 
brighter since Chuck McKinley was 
bouncing around the court and Den- 
ny Ralston was heaving tennis rackets 
over the net instead of himself when 
they lost a match. This year the cup 
should return from Down Under, where 
it has spent a good deal of the time. 

Diamond Slug Fest 

Richie Allen could find himself in the 
clink on assualt and battery charges, 
one set filed by the St. Louis Card- 

inals and the other by a Philadelphia 

Allen was incensed over the barten- 
der's charges, so he vented his wrath 
on the Cardinals. Patrick Bolton, the 
owner of the bar, contends that Allen 
punched him in the nose when he re- 
fused the Phillies slugger a drink. He 
stated Allen appeared to be intoxicated 

Allen hoisted a solo homer in the third 
inning against the Cards, and added a 
two-run blast in the seventh to account 
for three of the four runs. The Birds 
came up with two. 

And Thursday night a Tiger went on 
the rampage against a Chicago pitcher. 
Tommy John was charged by Dick Mc- 
Auliffe after he had brushed him back 
with a pitch. John got away with that 
much, but on a 3 and 2 count, John 
let go with another ball in the same 
general area as McAuliffe's head. 


On the way to first base, McAuliffe 
cussed a few times at John. John came 
off the mound with his hands raised 
in the manner of a pugilist and the 
bout was on. After the dust had set- 
tled, both players were evicted from the 
game, but the Tigers had won. John 
had been sidelined with torn ligaments 
in his left shoulder. 

Mel Pa me 11 was eating his words 
Saturday. His baseball words, that is. 
Rico Petrocelli fouled one into the an- 
nouncers box, and it was almost dead 
center in mellow Mel 's wide open 
mouth. Better luck next time, Rico. 

One For The Road 

Denny McLain Ls like so many of 
the political candidates. He needs only 
five more victories to become a 30- 
game winner, but his time could pos- 
sibly run out before the final ballot- 

McLain's campaign received a double 
set back as he absorbed two losses, 
one from the White Sox and one from 
the New York Yankees. 

McLain's first set back came at the 
bat of Pete Ward who smashed a grand 

Th* Statcamoa 


V - 

slam homer and Gerry McNertney who 
drove in another four rims on four 
singles as the White Sox shelled him 
10-2. Seven of the nine runs were un- 

McLain still wasn 't over his shell 
shock Saturday as he lost his claim 
to fame that he had not lost a road 
game all season. Mel Stottlemyre was 
backed by a two run homer by Roy 
White as the Yankees nipped Detroit 
2 1 at Yankee Stadium. 

Mickey Mantle hit his 534th homer 
of his career to tie Jimmy Foxx for 
third on the aU-time list of home run 
producers, but the Yankees went down 
to the Minnesota Twins, 3-1. 

When the Tigers and Yankees met 
over the weekend. Rocky Colavito prov- 
ed to be the star of the series. Col- 
avito nailed his first pitching victory in 
the majors in a sparkling relief job 
to beat the Tigers 6-5. He then return- 
ed to the outfield and smacked a second 
game run to stun the Timers, 5-4. 

It was a four game weekend sweep 
for the sixth place Yankees over the 
league leading Tigers. The Yanks boos- 
ted their average to .500, 63-«3, for 
the first time since last April 30. The 
Tigers are now snarled in their long- 
est losing streak of the season. 

Clyde Beatty in the APG 

The battle lines have been drawn and 
the nation's professional golfers have 
started to choose sides between the dis- 
sident touring pros and the Professional 
Golfers Association. 

If one reasonable man who makes 
a living at playing tournament golf- 
and there must be a few in spite of 
the evidence - were to spell out a few 
of the complaints of the touring pros 
against the leadership of professional 
golf, then it might be possible to see 
some of the justice in the secessionist 
movement which is now threatening the 

Up to now, however, not a soul has 
been able to explain what the malcon- 
tents want and what they hope to gain 
by pulling out of the P.G.A. All that 
comes out clearly and loudly is that the 
players are determined to take over the 
tour and split up the proceeds as they 
see fit, sans the interference <rf the 
organization that has built the circuit 
from nothing to a multi million dollar 

Maybe we're missing something, or 
maybe its ju-st a case of the inmates 
running the asylum. 

Probably the stars felt th^ tour be- 
longed to them because it was they 
who drew the crowds. But then the 
newspapers extolling their wins are used 
by a Sunday fisherman to wrap up 
his dead fish, new names will be bid- 
ding for the attention of the galleries. 

Samuel Gates, attorney for the dis- 
sidents, says the players are seeking 
the right to cast the deciding votes 
on matters which primarily affect them. 
Up till now they have had an equal 

August 28. 1968 

voice in setting up the conditions under 
which they play, approving sponsors, 
settling on prize money and selling tele- 
vision rights. 

They apparently are not satisfied with 
an equal voice; they want the only 
voice. They number only about 200 out 
of the total P.G.A. membership of 6200. 

When it comes to choosing a direct- 
or for the rebels, who call themselves 
the American Profession Golfers, let's 
hope, they don't overlook the name of 
Clyde Beatty. 

And Still Descending 

It was a little over a month ago that 
the majors started their pennant race 
with the managers. Earl Weaver re- 
placed Hank Bauer at the helm of the 
Baltimore Orioles, and Al Lopez came 
out of retirement to direct the Chicago 
White Sox. These two teams have re- 
mained static in the standings of the 
American League, but then there is the 
Philadelphia Phillies. 

Gene Mauch's reign gave way to that 
of Bob Skinner and Phillies fans have 
been agog at the meteoric fall of the 
Phillies from fourth place to seventh 
in the standings. In the span of a month 
the Phillies have managed to lose 23 
games and win 14. They are 21 1-2 
games out of first, and hardly pose a 
threat to the Cardinals. If they're still 
dreaming of the pennant in Philadel- 
phia, they have a bigger problem than 
the Boston fans. 

Glancing Askance 

It was "Hank Aaron Night in At- 
lanta", and the popular Braves slugger 
was honored by 25.000 and his team- 
mates. In a brief seizure of an in- 
security complex, Aaron was afraid that 
he would not be worthy of the honor 
bestowed upon him. On that note, the

are guaranteed $12,000 for their first

status, he is coachable. He also said 
that the trade hurt the 76ers which no 
doubt made few people sit up and take 
notice. He also predicted a war between 
the Leagues, and that comment too has 
to go down as a real earth shaker.

campaign to have the Olympics held in 
their fair city — in 1992 that is. The 
reason is that year will mark the 500th

UMass Undertakes Experiment in Education 

AMHERST— Last year there were 85 
Negro students in a student body of 
16,000 at the University of Massachu- 
setts. One Negro professor said he was 
shocked that the university had more 
Chinese students from Taiwan than 

When the first clcisses of the new aca- 
demic year are held Sept. 10, the cam- 
pus will welcome about 120 Negro stu- 
dents who probably would not be enter- 
ing college except for the first Negro 
recruitment drive known at a New Eng- 
land State School. 

Funds Provided 

They will be provided funds ranging 
from a few hundred doUars to $1600, the 
maximum offered by the school, during 
each of their four years. They will be 
given massive tutoring in addition to 
their normal course load, and counsel- 

But perhaps the unique effect of the 
program is that conventional admissions 
standards were thrown aside, for the 
most part, when the students were in- 
vited to attend the university. 

The students, all from this state and 
most from slum areas in Boston, Spring- 
field and other cities, were hemd-picked 
for their college potential by an all-Ne- 
gro group at the University known as 
the Committee for the Collegiate Edu- 
cation of Negro Students (CCENS). 

The 11 - member committee, led by 
Prof. Lawrence Johnson, assistant dean 
of the School of Business Administra- 
tion, worked on the project for a year 
and a half, winning the strong support 
of the board of trustees. It also won 
about $150,000 from the Legislature. 

William J. Wilson, assistant profes- 
sor of sociology, said the program is ex- 
pected to cost about $220,000 this year. 
Scholarship grants had been expected to 
amount to $130,000 but the need "may 
not be that great," according to Dallas 
L. Darland, staff assistant to the pro- 

Some $95,000 will be spent as salar- 
ies for a director, an assistant director, 
secretary, tutoring supervisor and 24 
graduate assistants, who will provide 
tutoring services for part-time salaries 
of $3000, Wilson said. Supplies and oth- 
er expenses will also come from the 
$95,000, he said. 

In addition to the state funds, about 
$65,000 will be taken from the Educa- 
tion Opportunity grants the university 
obtains annually from the Department 
of Health, Education and Welfare. The 
grants, directed strictly at the financial 
needs of each student, are being mailed 
to the new freshmen this week, accord- 
ing to Lynn E. Santner, assistant direct- 
or of the placement and financial aid 

The program also received a financial 


^boost from the student senate in the 
approval of a $41,000 contribution to the 
Martin Luther King Social Action Coun- 
cil late in the last school year. About 
$30,000 was earmarked for CCENS, but 
the senate named the council, a group 
aimed at improving race relations on 
campus, as recipient since the senate 
can fund only recognized student or- 
ganizations, according to Senate Presi- 
dent Paul Silverman. 

Because of the Senate approval of the 
funds, the tax paid by each student as 
part of his semester bill may be hiked 
$3 this year, he said. Although few stu- 
dents have criticized the action .so far, 
he said, opinions on the matter may be 
heated when the students return in 
September, and a referendum may be 
held on the funds. 

"Some people don't think the Senate 
should use money for things like this," 
he said. "I'm not so sure myself." 

The committee figured that each stu- 
dent would need an average of $1,075 
for the school year from the program, 
based on the average student need of 
about $1,800 for tuition, room, board, 
books,, fees and other expenses. The 
committee did not include spending 
money, Wilson said. A student on such 
a grant should earn at least $200 during 
the year in summer employment and 
part-time employment during the school 
year, the committee decided. 
Housing Set 

AH the 120 students will be housed in 
the Orchard Hill area, a residential 
complex of four seven-story dormitories, 
two male and two female, with a ca- 
pacity of 1,288 students. The committee 
has discounted charges that housing the 
students in the same complex will im- 
pede attempts to increase racial inter- 
action on campus. 

The students will be able to reach 
their tutors more easily by living in the 
same area, Darland said. "It's simply to 
solve a logistical problem," he said. He 
added that other residential areas on 
campus asked to serve as headquarters 
for the program. 

Officials of the program insist that in- 
tegrating the campus is not at all the 
primary concern. "It is certainly not 
for image puriK>ses," Darland said, "and 
if so it would be a self-defeating pur- 

Notes Strength 

. Calling the tutoring service the 
strength of the program, Darland said, 
"some schooLs have run out and grabbed 
all the Negroes they could find." Re- 
laxed admissions criteria are meaning- 
less in such programs unless extensive 
tutoring is provided at least during the 
freshman year, Wilson said. Tutoring 
will not be needed for most of the stu- 
dents in the program after their fresh- 

man year during which most of the aca- 
demic casualties occur at UM, he said. 

Next year the program may be ex- 
panded beyond another 120 students and 
will include underprivileged white and 
Puerto Rican students, the committee 
liopes. Officials are awaiting word on 
the rei-ults of an application for a siz- -g-^ 
able gront from the Ford Foundation to J^^' 
help fill expenses projected for the next 
few years. 

May Do More 

If any surplus of funds remains from 
the UMass program this year, with the 
possible aid of the Ford Foundation, 
similar programs will be aided at Hol- 
yoke and North Shore Junior Colleges, 
Wilson .said. 

About 35 students will enter Holyoke 
Community College under such a pro- 
gram this year. 

In choosing the 120 students, who 
will be among over 3,000 members of 
the class of 1972, Wilson said, "We were 
trying to get away from the traditional 
middle class criteria in order to achieve 
a more realistic appraisal." Students 
from the ghetto are less apt to score 
high on Scholastic Aptitude Tests be-^ 
cause the tests are based on middle- experiences, he said. "The tests de- 
termine training, but they do not deter- 
mine potential," he said. 

The committee consulted civic or- 
ganizations, high school offk^iais and ed- 
ucation leaders throughout the state to 
compile a list of Negro high school 
graduates with college potential who ac- 
cording to traditional admissions stan- 
dards would be considered marginal "at 
best. " Darland said. Few of them could 
otherwise enter college in September, 
he said. 

Acceptance was based chiefly on let- 
ters of recommendation, achievement 
patterns, interviews and autobiogra- 
phies, according to Wilson. A student 
who scored a low overall total on an 
achievement test might have been con- 
sidered favorably because of a rela- 
tively high score in one area," which 
indicated something turned him on 
here," Darland said. 

Conventional examinations discrimi - 
nate against many disadvantaged stu- 
dents by posing questions based on ex- 
periences unfamiliar to them, Wilson 

He cited a similar program begun in .«.\. 
the New York City College system in ^ 
1966, in which 90 per cent of the stu- 
dents admitted under the unconvention- 
al standards have survived. Other pro- 
grams have been operated at Wesleyan, 
Antioch, California at Berkeley, Cornell, 
Michigan, UCLA, Harvard and Yale, 
he said. 

Among the new Negro students will 
be 55 from Springfield and 65 from 
Boston. —Springfield Daily News

New Industrial Design Course: 
From Idea To Finished Product 

A p ~t;'ble sailboat, outdoor cooker, 
crutche.', ood grater and knife might 
sound like Ijasic equipment for a camp- 
ing trip in the White Mountains, but 
are actually products of a UMass en- 
gineering class. 

In the new industrial design course 
in the School of Engineering, students 
start with an original idea and end with 
a complete working model of a new 

Each of the students of engineer-des- 
igner Frank Umholtz has up to a school 
year to carry his idea from design 
conception, through drawings and speci- 
fications, and finally to a finished work- 
ing model good enough to serve as a 
manufacturer's prototype. 

The first group (rf products includes 
a rig that converts a standard air mat- 
tress into a one-man sailboat, an en- 
tirely new outdoor cooker that uses 
electricity, a crutch of a completely 
new design, a food grater, a knife and 
other items. 

"The idea of the course is to intro- 
duce design to engineering students," 
Prof. Umholtz said. "We concentrate 
on product design and try to teach 
a concept of total design that involves 
the appearance as well as the engineer 
ing of a product." 

Eric May of Lexington got the idea 
that an aluminum-frame sailing rig 
could be fitted to a standard air mat- 
tress. The result is ''Little Flipper," a 
one man sailboat with 28 square feet of 
sail, total weight of about 45 pounds 
and total cost of $70. It can be car- 
ried by one person and assembled ready 
to .sail in four minutes. 

Donald Poole of South Deerfield took 
a new look at the common crutch and 
came up with an entirely new design 
that Dr. Robert Gage, director of UMass 
Health Services, has called a "signifi 
cant improvement." Poole designed a 
molded fiberglass upper half fbr his 
crutches that conforms to the user's 
body and bears much of its weight. 

His crutch distributes the body 's 

weight over a larger area, eliminating 
the strain that conventional crutches 
impose on the brachial artery and brac- 
hial muscles under the arm. 

William Lyman of South Hadley de 
signed an ultra-modern electric "Char- 
master" that he calls a "new concept 
in outdoor cooking." It has space-age 
styling outside and all-electric cooking 
units inside, including a grille, rotis- 
serie, and electric starter. 

Students are expected to do all the 
work they can on their projects. This 
can include making molds for casting, 
laminating fiberglass, making wood pat- 
terns and a variety of finishing op- 
erations. The basic course lasts one 
semester, with a second semester avail- 
able for those doing larger projects. 

UMass engineering student Donald Poole of 
South Deerfield, left, with the crutches he 
designed ar>d built as a project for the School 
of Engineering's new industrial design course. 
Molded crutch tops are designed to fit user's 
arms and sides, eliminating much of the strain 
that conventional crutches impose on under- 
arm area. UA^ass Infirmary patient, Martha 
Carey of Delmar, N.Y., tries out crutches un- 
der the guidance of Dr. Thomas McBride, as- 
sistant UMass Health Service director, who 
helped Poole in crutch design. 

"Little Flipper" tacks on Campus Pond, designer Eric AAay of Lexington 4t the helm. AAay, 
senior in mechanical engineering, created the craft as a project in the School of Engineer- 
ing's new industrial design course. It uses an aluminum frame sailing rig to convert a stand- 
ard air mattress to a one-man sailboat.

Czechoslovakia: Another David and Goliath 


The word in the Czechoslovakia 
crisis at the beginning of this week 
was wait. The key element was the 
continuation of talks in Moscow be- 
tween Soviet and Czechoslovakia lead- 
ers in an attempt to find a way out of 
the Soviet occupation of Czechslovak- 

Alexander Dubcek, the Czechoslo 
vakia party chief and premier Oldrich 
Cernik, both seized in Prague on Wed- 
nesday, joined Czech President Ludvik 
Svoboda at the Moscow talks over the 
weekend. It Wcis hoped that this move 
might mean the possibilities of a re- 
turn to the former leadership with 
only minimal restrictions demanded on 
the liberal regime by the Soviets. 

With all the news that is coming 
out of Czechoslovakia, Moscow and the 
United Nations debates, it is the atti- 
tude of the Czech people and their 
passive resistence to the Russian 
troops that has most caught the eye of 
the foreign journalists and the Ameri- 
can pubhc. 

Stiff Upper Lip 

Demonstrating incredible flexibility 
and restraint the Czechs faced their 
foe and managed to stick together with 
a network of underground radio and 
information networks encouraging the 

A month ago, a Czechoslovak jour- 
nalist, speculating on what might hap- 
pen if there was military intervention, 
said: "Look, we shall not fight. But 
what can the Russians do if we keep 
up our courage, stick ti>gether, carry 
on with our press and our discussions, 
call together the party congress and 
get rid of the conservatives— in short, 
continue our political work as if the 
troops were not there?" 

It sounded far-fetched, and it may 
turn out to be, but for the first days 
after the seizure of the country, it was 
very close to what happened. 

Replacements Fall Short 

In fact, the Russians found they 
were virtually without political levers. 
They tried desperately to put together 
a new party leadership and govern- 
ment, but after thi-ee days all they 
managed to find were a few conserva- 
tives whose lack of effectiveness — and 
possibly of enthusiasm — was such that 
their names were not even announced. 

Meanwhile, 1,100 delegates had been 
smuggled into Prague and had held un- 
der the Soviet guns, a party congress 
that elected a whole new liberal Pre- 
sidium according to the most irre - 
proachably orthodox party regulations. 

After three days nobody had been 

found to put out, over the radio or in 
the press, the surreal justifications for 
the intervention that Tass and Pra- 
vda, the official Soviet newspapers, 
have been issuing. 

Besides isolating the occupiers signi- 
ducted their protests in the raost 
varied and ingenious ways. The Soviet 
troops have been harrangued into a 
near state of shock by students, work- 
ers and little old ladies. Soviet tanks 
trundle by with swastikas painted on 
one side and "Long Live Dubcek" on 
the other. 

A widespread, well -organized 
network of information got the news 
of what was happening to the Czecho- 
slovak people and to the outside world. 
Street signs were repainted, direction- 
al markers were turned around, and 
names of villages were transposed, to 
confuse the Soviet authorities who 
were racing around the countryside 
trying to impose order. 

It would be easy, out of hoi)e and 
admiration for Czechoslovak wit and 
valor, to exaggerate the long-range 
hopes for this resistance. The Soviet 
Union will obviously have the last 
word, sfx>ner or later. 

But what the I'esistance may have 
done is to have shifted the terms of 
this last woixi so that the Czechoslo- 
vaks may be allowed, not the dream 
they have had for the last six months, 
but perhaps more autonomy than any- 
one would have thought possible three 
days ago. 

An equally important asp>ect of the 
Czech crises is the scars that it will 
leave on Russia and the entire Com- 
munist block. 

It was only a year ago that the So- 
viet's were wooping it up in celebra- 
tion of the 50th anniversary of the 
Bolshevik revolution. The country 
seemed in fine shape at the time and 
despite differences with some of its 
allies, the entire Soviet world ap- 
peared to be settling down for a period 
of domestic fence mending and inter- 
nal growth. 

The actions of Moscow however may 
very well have sent the unity of the 
Communist world spinning off faster 
and farther than it has ever been. 

Final Fragmentation 

Commenting on the effect of the 
Czech move on the Communist world 
Harrison Salisbury wrote: 

The once monolithic Oommunist 
world may have suffered a new and 
possibly final fragmentation last week 
amid the grim clatter of Soviet tanks 

rumbling through the streets of Pra- 

Regardless of the immediate out- 
come in Czechoslovakia, there was a 
multitude of signs that nothing short 
of global military diktat would ever 
bring back the Communist hegemony 
imposed by the late Josef Stalin. And 
the damage inflicted on the Commun- 
ist cause within the Soviet Union might 
prove even more serious. 

Russia's action in Czechoslovakia 
shattered a Communist world already 
badly split. Three major Communist 
states — Yugoslavia, Rumania and 
China — openly denounced the Moscow 
action. The two greatest Communist 
parties in Western Europe, those of 
France and Italy, rushed to support 
beleaguered Prague. 


Standing with Moscow were only 
the Governments of East Germany, 
Poland, Hungary and Bulgaria. There 
was a notable coolness among the 
common p)eople in Hungary and even, 
it seemed, in East Germany. Never 
had Moscow stood so isolated in the 
Marxist world. 

Moreover, within the Soviet Union 
the divisive consequences of Russia's 
intervention raised questions so ex- 
plosive that there were those who be- 
lieved that the most lasting negative 
consequences would be felt in the So- 
viet homeland itself. 

Parallel To Hungary 

When Soviet tanks crushed the Hun- 
garian revolution in Budapest 12 years 
ago, it seemed that a new era of dark- 
ness was about to descend uF>on East- 
ern Europe. But, within a short period 
of time the Hungarians won greater 
freedom than they had p>ossessed at 
any time since Communist rule had 
been imposed. And within Russia the 
movement for internal liberalization 
was strengthened, not weakened. 

To many it seemed possible that 
events would follow a parallel course 
in the wake of the Prague interven- 
tion. The internal Soviet repercussions 
may be far stronger. The Soviet regime 
could react with a reimjxjsition of 
Stalinist police controls and terror, a 
return to the concentration camp sys- 
tem and secret executions. 

But it seemed hardly likely that 
there is anyone in authority in Moscow 
who thinks that this would work. To 
try to move in that direction, would 
only bring on the violent explosion 
which the regime so desperately sought 
to avoid.

Music Series Preview 

On September 11 the UMass depart- 
ment of music will offer its opening con- 
cert of the 1968-69 season in Bowker 
Auditorium — a collection of works by 
Schumann and Robert Stern. 

The 8 p.m. prc^raun will feature Doro- 
thy Ornest, soprano, Charles Fussell, 
piano, Joel Krosnick, cello and Robert 
Stern piemo. 

The \..-^r-am. will present Schumann's 
? rauenlit'i e 'ind Leben (A woman's life 
and T ', " soprano and piano) and 

his P'lve p»t- o in Folk Style, opus 102 
foK cello ana piano. Highlight of the 
program will be Robert Stern's Tere- 
zin, a cycle for soprano, cello and piano. 

The idea for the program started with 
the premier performamce of Terezin, Dr. 
Stern's cycle based on poems and pic- 
tures by children imprisoned in the 
Terezin concentration camp not far 
from Prague. Terezin was only a way 
station to the point of no return— Au- 
schwitz. Approximately 15,000 children 
under 15 years of age were sent to Tere- 
zin. After the Soviet Army liberated 
Terezin in May, 1945, about 100 of the 
children returned home. 

rxiring the premiere an unique prob- 
lem developed: for the three performers 
—Miss Omest and Messrs. Krosnick and 
Stern — the poems were so touching in 
their innocent tragedy and the music so 
perfectly suited to the poems that the 
performers found then^lves repeatedly 
being moved to tears. In fact, several 
trial performances were given in music 
classes while the performers worked 
towards reproducing the emotions called 
forth by Terezin without being moved to 
tears by them. 

For this particular prv)gram, the per- 
formers searched for works whicii 
evoked emotions of similar power to 
those of Terezin. It was not long be- 
fore Schumann's Frauenllebe und Le^en 
(A Woman's Dife and Loves) came to 
mind. A woman reflects: the first time 
she sees her husband, the ecstasy of the 
love being retunied, the wedding cere- 
mony, having their first child, and then 
her husband's death. 

The i)erformers reasoned further: 
that the Schumann 5 Pieces in Folk 
Style were also songs, though these 
pieces have no words. They have many 
of the same poignant emotions evoked 
in other Schumann song cycles, though 
in this case implied rather than explicit.

College Press Service 

One Monday morning last October, 
FBI agents turned up on the campus 
at Yale to interrogate members of the 
student body, faculty and staff who had 
returned their draft cards. 

Aiinough no one, under the Supreme 
Court Miranda ruling, was required to 
answer a single question, most of the 
21 people questioned talked a great 
deal. Why? A recent article in the Yale 
Law Journal gives the results of the 
Journal's inquiry into this question. 

First, it was learned that even though 
the men questioned had superior edu- 
cations, they did not know their rights 
under Miranda. Those who were awa'^e 
that some such rights existed had never 
thought of them as applying to them- 
selves, and could not, therefore, readily 
apply them at the moment they were 
needed. Under Miranda, which is 
usually applied to police interrogations 
after an arrest, the suspect has 1) the 
right to remain silent, 2) the right to 
know that anything he says cem be 
used against him, 3) the right to a 
lawyer during all of the questioning, 
and 4) the right to halt questioning at 
any time and get a lawyer. 

The first big advantage the agents 
had was one of their mainstays: sur- 
prise. They arrived early in the morning 
— a favorite time for Interrogators and 
arresting police is 3 or 4 a.m. when 
resistance is low and thought processes 
slowed — and worked in pairs, confront- 
ing separate individuals who were part 
of the previously disorganized anti-war 
movement at Yale. 

Prior to the FBI visits, the men 
involved had not given any thought to 
their rights or the possibility of FBI 
interrogation. This was immediately 
remedied; a meeting to discuss their 
rights was held that first evening. 
Notices were posted, and the Dean of 
the Divinity School annouiiced that 
beginning Tuesday, October 24, no agent 
of the FBI had his permission to inter- 
view students on campus. Yet interro- 
gations continued there through Friday. 

They followed a format which works 
very well. The suspect is questioned 
alone (wife or anyone else present is 
asked to leave), with one agent asking 
the questions, another writing down 
answers. He is given a waiver of his 
Miranda rights to sign in a manner 
implying that it is routine, usually with 
a terse explanation that it simply lists 
his constitutional rights. 

The FBI agents at Yale were not 
scrupulous about following the Miranda 
requirement to halt questioning when- 
ever the suspect "indicates in any 
manner . . . that he wishes to remain 


silent." Without exception, those sus- 
pects who indicated that they did not 
wish to answer were forced to repeat 
it several times to convince the agents. 
Some agents tried to frighten the sus- 
pects with grave statements like, "We 
will have to report that you refused." 
One told a suspect who asked him to 
come back when he had a lawyer that 
as they were dealing with a "Federal 
crime," matters couldn't be dragged dut. 
Some waivers were given late, after cer- 
tain questions had been asked and 

There were several reasons why men 
who might have been expected to know 
better talked so much in a situation 
which could only aid their adversaries. 
Some didn't see the reasons for remain- 
ing silent. Some saw it as a morsl 
rather than a legal confrontation; they 
saw silence as refusal to state their 
beliefs. As they did not consider them- 
selves criminals, and were acting on 
moral grounds, why not talk? Some 
hoped to persuade the agents with their 
arguments, and perhaps even the Jus- 
tice Department in the end. 

Most were extremely nervous. Antici- 
pating some reaction to their first act 
in defiance of law, they saw the interro- 
gations as the beginning of punishment. 

It was a "crisis-laden situation" in 
which the agent counts on the suspect's 
nervousness, his isolation, and the fact 
he is outnumbered. Even those men who 
were half-aware of their rights had 
trouble remaining calm and using their 
best judgment. 

Much of the talking that was done 
after the suspects learned their rights 
on Monday night grew out of a desire 
not to be rude. For middle class sus- 
pects, the Law Journal points out, inter- 
rogation becomes a social situation. The 
agents know this. They assume an 
engaging and informal manner. When 
a suspect refuses to answer a question, 
they make small talk — comment on the 
cat or a piece of sculpture. They talk 
about their families and emphasize that 
they are only doing a job. The suspect 
scon feels socially obliged to answer 
some questions, a fatal error. "I had 
come to feel very uncooperative and 
nasty," said one Yale man in explana- 

Those suspects who made out best, 
and who felt afterward that they had 
stood up to the FBI. all assumed the of- 
fensive at the beginning by refusing to 
talk at all. One. upon learning who the 
agents were simply said: "In that case, 
gentlemen. I have nothing to say to you." 
Although they were as ignorant and 
ncivous as the others, they avoided the 
social situation and the impossible legal 
judgments that become necessary when 
the unsuspecting layman tries to answer 
some questions and refuse others. 

Those who talked to the agents all 
felt like failures afterward.
